No-Bake CHOCO-PEANUT Protein Bar Recipe!

February 22, 2012

Yummy Stuff

I decided to try out this no bake recipe today, which contains my 2 favorite ingredients joined together (chcolate & peanut butter) to form a delicious & healthy protein snack!

I prefer using organic and vegan protein sources in my bars, at this point, the only protein powder I found here in Croatia is the Raw Organic Vegan Hemp protein. But I am expecting my “Organic Vanilla Vega Sport Protein Powder” to be shipped pretty soon…can’t wait!!!

Ingredients

  • 2 mashed bananas
  • 3 cups  dry oatmeal
  • 4 tbsp. ground flax-seed
  • 6 tbsp. raw organic hemp protein (or protein of your choice)
  • ½ cup of natural peanut butter (or other kind of nut butter)
  • 4 tbsp. shredded coconut
  • ½ cup apple sauce
  • ½ cup raisins
  • 1 tbsp. honey
  • ½ cup water
  • 1 large dark chocolate bar (approx. 1 cup)

Preparation

  • Mix all the ingredients together except the chocolate (mixture should be somewhat sticky)
  • Line an 8×8 pan with foil and spread mixture equally in the pan
  • Melt the chocolate and spread over the mixture
  • Place the mixture in the freezer for at least 2 hours before serving
  • Cut into 20 bars and wrap in plastic wrap or foil and store in freezer
  • Thaw slightly before serving

Each piece (1/24) contains 150 calories and 5 grams of protein. For a higher protein %, feel free to add an extra scoop or two of protein powder to the mix!

MmMmMmMmMmM…this turned out really delicious 😉

Enjoy!

    I am going to make these today! I’ve been on the search for soy-free protein bars lately and these look soooo good.

    Can you please clarify how much peanut butter to use?

    Thanks 🙂

    Might give this a go with dried cranberries instead of raisins!
