I currently like to eat protein bars as a snack, because they’re easy to take with you, they’re tasty and the ones I’m eating (clean protein bars from http://www.bodyenfitshop.nl) are also quite filling. But also very expensive! So I was looking to see if I could make them myself using protein powder, which is less expensive. I combined some ideas I saw online and came up with these tasty, easy to make and no-bake bars:
Recipe is for 8 bars:
1 bar is 2 sp for you ww people out there
1 bar contains 106 kcal, 6.4 gr carbs, 2.8 gr fat and 12.6 gr protein.
- 1 banana
- 100 ml (1/2 cup) of unsweetened almond milk
- A splash of liquid sweetener (to taste)
- A few drops of vanilla and rum essence (or whatever tastes good to you)
- 50 gr coconut flour
- 20 gr unsweetened peanutbutterpowder
- 100 gr of coconut flavour whey protein powder (I use whey perfection)
- 15 gr raw cacao nibs
- 20 gr psyllium fiber
Mix the liquid ingredients with the smashed banana, set aside. Use a sieve for the flour, peanutbutter powder and protein powder, and mix with the cacao nibs and fiber. Throw like a teaspoon of this mix in your pan/mould to ease removal afterwards! Now pour the liquid mix on top of the ‘dry’ mix, and mix until it becomes like a dough. If it’s too dry, add a bit of extra almond milk. It shouldn’t be too wet, because it will not really dry up anymore. Press the dough into a pan, a mould or whatever has a shape that suits you. Put in the fridge for a couple of hours, remove, cut into 8 pieces and use a bit of baking paper to wrap them, because they’re still a bit sticky! Store in the fridge, enjoy!
