Double Chocolate Protein Bars

Double Chocolate Protein Bars

Ok, so these…are amazing.

I totally stole the idea from Laura & Kammie from this post Red Velvet Protein Bars.

I am always looking for new ways to make protein filled snacks. I have been working out a lot lately and I have been really loving it, but I have learned that my body NEEDS protein.

That was a large problem before for me with not seeing any results and not seeing inches go away. Once I started eating more lean protein? The results were astonishing.

So clearly I am going to continue with that trend and eat lots and lots of protein.

But, you know there is only so much chicken and fish you can eat right?

I know, I know…there are other proteins besides chicken and fish. I am just being facetious. Work with me, k?

I do like to have the added benefit of protein in my sweets though. I have developed a couple different recipes that are amazing. Now I can add this one to it!

Thank you Laura and Kammie! These things are awesome!

 

Double Chocolate Protein Bars
Recipe Type: Snack

Total time:
Serves: 8
This protein packed snack will leave you feeling full and ready to power through your workout!
Ingredients
  • 1/4 cup Organic, Raw, Vegan Vanilla Protein Powder
  • 1/4 cup Organic, Raw, Vegan Chocolate Protein Powder
  • 1 tablespoon Almond Meal/Flour
  • 1 tablespoon almond butter
  • 2 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 1/2 Cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 Cup dark at least 60% cocoa chocolate chips
  • 2 tablespoons chopped walnuts
Instructions
  1. Add the protein powders and almond meal into a bowl and whisk together. Add in milk and almond butter and use a fork to mix together until the protein is fully incorporated. I found the dough to be fine with these measurements, however if it is still too liquid, add more protein.
  2. This batter is meant to be thick, shape it into 8 balls. Then press them into the shape of a bar and place them onto a wax paper lined plate or cookie sheet and place into the fridge.
  3. Melt the chocolate chips in a microwave or on the stove and once it’s melted dip the bars into the chocolate to coat.
  4. I sprinkled half the bars with chopped walnuts and left the others plain.
  5. Place the bars into the freezer to flash freeze the outer shells and then place into the fridge for at least an hour.
  6. Remove from fridge and enjoy!

  3. These look CRAZY delicious, I can’t believe they’re protein bars!

  4. I’m so excited!!! These look awesome… and with the ingredients you have, this is totally something I can make my kids. We have a favorite chocolate protein powder that would work great, and there’s no dairy at all in the whole recipe! So hard to find dairy-free stuff for them. LOVE this!!!

  5. I’m not a protein bar person, but these would definitely convert me! I also like that you used a vegan protein powder. I find most protein powders hard on my stomach. ;-(

  6. I wish I had one of these to snack on right now! Perfect food to help fill a craving and with all the protein you don’t have to feel bad like when you eat junk food.

  7. I have been looking for good protein bar recipes as well, totally bookmarking and trying!
