Crunchy Choco Nutbutter Protein Bars Recipe

crunchy choco nutbutter protein squares

This one was inspired by Mandy, who sent me a pic of her friend’s pre-packaged protein bar mix. (Who knew they even made such a thing! I had no idea!)

Not bad but methinks we can do better! 😉

It’s so awesome to make things yourself, so you get to choose what goes in there and just use what works best for you … Only the clean stuff for us! (Of course.)


Oh and each of these bars contains about 15 grams of protein.

Double yahoo!

For the coating:

In food processor on high speed, blend all ingredients except cacao nibs til pasty, about 5 min, scraping down sides periodically when necessary. Mix in cacao nibs by hand, distributing evenly. Press firmly into loaf pan lined with parchment paper. Pop into freezer to set while you make chocolate coating.

In small bowl, mix cocoa powder, coconut oil and maple syrup til well blended. Smooth on top of protein bar loaf and return to freezer to firm up, about an hour. Remove and cut into 6 even squares. Enjoy!

PS: Keep leftovers in freezer.
