Make Protein Bars at Home
I have a lot of requests through twitter requested high-protein, natural meals or snacks that people can indulge in especially post/pre gym sessions. I’ve been meaning to put this recipe up for a while but because I wasn’t quite happy with my original recipe I gave the recipe a few tweaks so I’m now 100% happy with it. So if you’ve ever wondered how to make protein bars at home so you know EXACTLY what’s in them, just try this recipe!
Ingredients for making Protein Bars
- 60g rolled oats
- 60g almond flour
- 40g cooked quinoa
- 70g peanut butter
- 100g dried apricots
- 20g dessicated coconut plus 10g for rolling
- 100g dried apples
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
Boil dried apples and leave them in boiling water for ten minutes to soften. Drain and add the cinnamon and place in a blender and blitz.
Into the blender add your oats, almond flour, coconut oil, cooked quinoa, peanut butter and coconut.
Place your blended mixture into a bowl and add your apricots, which should be roughly chopped.
Your mixture should be slightly damp. Take small chunks from the mixture, roll into a ball in your hand, dip in the left over 10g of desicated coconut and place on a baking tray.
Place in the fridge for a couple of hours to firm up.
Serve for breakfast, as a snack or as a dessert with a variety of berries, fruit and nuts.
