I have been looking for a protein bar that is not full of carbs. The following is a my own interpretation of a recipe I found online. You could experiment with other ingredients (i.e., other types of protein powder, coco powder, nuts and seeds, etc...). If you come up with other variations, let me know! :)
My Private Note
Units: US | Metric
- 1/2 cup flax seed meal (grind whole flax in a coffee grinder)
- 2 tablespoons coconut flour
- 2 tablespoons sesame seeds
- 10 tablespoons protein powder (I use rice)
- 3 tablespoons carob powder
- 1/8 teaspoon stevia powder (or to taste)
- 1/3 cup almond butter
- 2 tablespoons coconut oil
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/2 cup water (more or less, as necessary)
- 11. Mix all dry ingredients well.
- 22. Mix together almond butter and coconut oil in a small cup (if the oven is warm (not hot!) I place it in there for a minute to soften it before stiring.
- 33. Add almond butter and oil to dry ingredients and mix WELL (I actually use my hands to do this). The mixture will be rather dry and crumbly.
- 44. Add vanilla extract and water (I'd recommend adding water gradually, starting with 1/4 cup, so you don't overdo it) and mix well.
- 55. Grease a 9x9 pan (or similar size) and press dough into pan. I press for a few minutes with my hand to create a consistent thickness.
- 66. Chill in the fridge for several hours to set, then cut into approximately 6 pieces. Wrap each one individually for a quick snack, or store them with wax paper in-between.
