Gluten free and soy free homemade protein bars

#1 Postby Synny667 » Fri Jan 18, 2013 10:05 pm

This is the best one I have made thus far and it is completely flexible in what you want to use :) I added in most of the optional ingredients and I recommend adding more moisture to it. I love snacking on these babies!!!


Averie’s Vegan No-Bake Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Protein Bars

Ingredients

1 Ripe Banana (mashed)
1.5 c Oats
1/2 c Shredded Coconut (I used sweetened)
1/2 c Raisins (or date chunks, cranberries, craisins, dried cherries/mangoes/apricots/etc. Any dried fruit will work)
1/2 c Chocolate Chips (or carob, butterscotch, white chocolate chips, etc.)
1/2 c Maple Syrup (or agave, yacon syrup)
1/2 c Peanut Butter (or any nut butter, i.e. almond, pecan, cashew, etc.)

The Following Ingredients are Optional but I used them all:

2 to 4 scoops of Protein Powder (I used 2 heaping scoops of Sun Warrior Brown Rice Raw Vegan Protein Powder in Vanilla flavor. And if you don’t care about the protein aspect or don’t have on hand, just omit the Protein Powder all together)
2 Tbsp Flax Seeds
2 Tbsp Chia Seeds
1.5 Tsp Cinnamon
1 Tsp Vanilla Extract
Yields: Approximately 10 decent sized bars
Note: The above are rough measurements and you can use the kitchen sink mentality on this recipe: a dash of this, a dab of that, don’t have this but have tons of that, throw everything in but the kitchen sink strategy and they will “work”. I promise.

Storage: I store mine in the freezer, individually wrapped, so I can grab and go as needed. They soften up quickly at room temp, and will keep for a month or more in the freezer.
I do because I can. I can because I want to. I want to because you said I couldn't.

I don't make excuses... I make results

If it doesn't challenge you, it doesn't change you

These sound awesome, and I've been looking for something home-made to save a few bucks!

Thanks. Looking for grab and go breakfast bar so this might work.
If it's important to you, you'll find a way. If it isn't, you'll find an excuse.

This is seriously amazing. I have a couple (non-vegan) friends making their own bars and I have grown envious of them over the past couple months. I will be trying these for sure this week! I wonder what the protein content would be like without the powder?

I would assume on the low side. But I am no expert :)
