Substances Wanted

You solely want 8 easy pantry staple substances to make these protein bars! I guess you have already got most, if not every little thing in your kitchen proper now. Right here’s what you want:

  • vanilla protein powder – you’ll want a plant-based vanilla protein powder for this recipe. I’ve examined it with Solar Warrior and Nuzest and I extremely advocate considered one of these manufacturers. You need to use my code eatingbirdfood for 15% off your Nuzest order.
  • oat flour – use store-bought or make home made oat flour. I wouldn’t swap the oat flour with one other flour as I’ve solely examined this recipe with oat flour.
  • salt – omit in case your peanut butter has salt.
  • pure creamy peanut butter – you need to use pure, drippy peanut butter not a thick peanut butter unfold. Search for a peanut butter with only one or two substances, the nuts and salt. I like Loopy Richard’s creamy peanut butter. Be happy to make use of almond butter or a seed butter rather than the peanut butter if wanted.
  • honey – this pure sweetener holds the bars collectively and offers the bars a delicate sweetness. Maple syrup will work instead.
  • coconut oil – you need this to be in its liquid state while you measure it!
  • vanilla extract – a scrumptious taste enhancer.
  • chocolate chips – I like to recommend Lily’s chocolate chips as a result of they’ve zero sugar added.

Methods to Make Protein Bars

These protein bars are really easy to whip up. You simply want one bowl and fewer than 10 minutes of prep time. The toughest half is ready for the bars to sit back within the fridge!

Step 1: In a medium mixing bowl mix the protein powder, oat flour, salt, peanut butter, honey, vanilla and coconut oil. Use a spoon or your arms to combine collectively. If the dough is just too dry, add extra coconut oil, 1 teaspoon at a time.

Step 2: Stir within the chocolate chips. Press the dough right into a lined loaf pan and prime with further chocolate chips. Let the bars chill in fridge for no less than one hour earlier than chopping. As soon as chilled, take away the pan from the fridge and reduce into 6 equal-sized bars. Take pleasure in!

Brittany’s Ideas

  • Use the fitting protein powder: Be sure to make use of plant-based protein powder for this recipe. Don’t use whey protein powder because it doesn’t absorb as a lot liquid and can change the consistency of those bars.
  • Combine dough with arms: The dough will likely be fairly thick after combining all of the substances so I recommend mixing it along with your arms to make sure every little thing will get evenly blended collectively.
  • Add extra liquid as wanted: In case your dough is just too dry/crumbly you may add extra melted coconut oil or water, 1 teaspoon at a time.

Dietary Substitutions

  • Peanut-free – Have a peanut allergy? Use almond butter or cashew butter as an alternative.
  • Nut-free – Swap the peanut butter with sunflower seed butter or tahini.
  • Gluten-free – Ensure you’re utilizing gluten-free oats or oat flour.
  • Vegan – Ensure you’re utilizing vegan chocolate chips and swap the honey for maple syrup.
  • Low-sugar – Use monk fruit sugar free maple syrup as an alternative of honey
