This one is for all those gym devotees perpetually in the search for more protein (especially all you vegetarians out there!). This recipe is choc-a-bloc full of all the healthy alternatives to the usual culprits in other health bars. So go on, make this one post-workout snack you’ll never regret!
Serves: 10 pieces Prep Time: 30 mins
- ⅓ cup almond butter
- 1 cup + 2 tablespoons unsweetened vanilla almond milk (or milk of choice)
- 1 teaspoon Stevia
- 10 drops lemon or almond essence
- 8 scoops vanilla brown rice protein powder
- ½ cup oat flour
- 4 teaspoons organic matcha powder
- 50-75gms dark chocolate, melted
Line an 8-inch brownie pan with parchment paper both ways.
In a bowl, add the almond butter, milk, stevia and lemon flavor. Beat on low speed.In another bowl, whisk together the protein powder, oat flour and matcha powder. Slowly add this to the almond butter-milk mixture.
Mix until everything is well-combined and has the texture of cookie dough, scraping down the sides of the bowl if necessary.
Scoop the mixture into the prepared pan and flatten the surface. Tightly cover the pan with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight.
The next day, slice the protein bars and drizzle them liberally with chocolate! (More the better we say!)
To store, place the protein bars on a plate and wrap tightly.
