I love making my own healthy homemade protein bars – they taste SO much better than the processed kind and are much healthier for you. These are chocolate peanut butter flavour cuz why would you want anything else! ;)

Ingredients (base)

  • 2 cups almond meal / gluten free oat flour
  • 2 scoops chocolate protein powder (can use vegan)
  • 4 tablespoons peanut butter
  • 2 tablespoons PB2 powder (can omit from recipe)
  • ¼ cup almond milk
  • 3-4 tbsp honey or sweetener
  • ¼ cup dark choc chips
  • Pinch of salt

Ingredients (topping)

  • 1/2 cup dark choc chips
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil, melted

Note: you could make a healthier chocolate topping with cacao powder, coconut oil and a sweetener, but I was feeling naughty :)

Method

  1. Blend up all the base ingredients (except choc chips) in a food processor, or you could use a hand blender. If you don’t have oat flour, just blend 2 cups of oats in the blender and it will turn into oat flour :)
  2. Stir through choc chips.
  3. Press into the base of a lined caked tin.
  4. Melt choc chips and coconut oil in microwave for approximately 1 minute.
  5. Stir thoroughly and then pour over base.
  6. Place in freezer to set for 2 hours.

I hope you enjoy them! xx
