Possibly One of the Most Ridiculously Delicious Homemade Chocolate Protein Bars Ever

Printer-Friendly Version

Forgive the hyperbolic name I’ve given to this bar. I am just in a state of intense wonderment. WHAT ON EARTH? I took the basic scaffold of the Propane Barand set it on fire.

See, I decided not to use oats or quinoa flakes (or any type of grain for that matter); I wanted to use freshly made brazil nut butter and not peanut butter; I used casein as the primary protein powder + a tiny bit of (orange) whey and also… I used beans (!)

This recipe goes to show you can literally do whatever you want with your protein bars :-) Without further ado, here’s the recipe :-))))))))


70g unsalted cooked black beans
32g chocolate casein protein powder
12g ground almonds
5g orange whey protein powder
5g coconut flour
13g brazil nut butter
10g goji berries
2 tablespoons coconut milk


1. Mix it all up.

2. Use your hands. Make rectangles.

3. Dip them in melted 90% chocolate (23g’s worth of chocolate).

4. Freeze them. GO. CRAZY.

Macros per Serving (out of 2):

22g protein
13g carbos (4.5g fiber)
15g fat

    Hi! No, I didn’t cook them; I bought them canned and they come already cooked so no need to cook them; just make sure they unsalted :-)

    This recipes looks amazing but I was wondering what the conversion from grams to cups is… or are you measuring this as grams by weight. I looked in my kitchen and I have nothing that measures closely to grams in volume. Thanks for your help!
