White Chocolate & Cranberry Protein Pow Bars
These bars were made for sharing. You can wrap them in pretty paper (or heck, in aluminium foil) to give as a gift to friends and/or family too – they’ll LOVE you for it.
These bars were also designed for those days when you’re at home with your family ones and want to have a some fun in the kitchen together! They are fun to make, fool-proof, ridiculously easy, and above all: DELICIOUS.
These bars are the perfect answer to your desire to have something sweet, festive, yet healthy this holiday season too. Because they’re nutritious, all-natural (in the sense that they’re devoid of all artificial sweeteners, artificial flavorings, soy, bulk ingredients, and wack fibers), gluten-free, and perfect alongside a cup of coffee before a big workout!
Have I mentioned that they’re also DELICIOUS too? I mean, fuf… they look nice in the photos but trust me when I say they taste a million times better. Like a cross between cookie dough and blondies! Like a marriage between nommage and… bliss :-) They’re the kind of bar you write home about.
Below you’ll find the recipe. Go ahead and print the recipe and stick it on your fridge as a reminder (there is a ‘print’ button on the upper right hand side of this post, when viewed on a laptop of desktop). You’ll flip out when you bite into these bars; they’re absolutely spectacular!
18g Whey Protein Powder
55g Cashew Nut Butter
25g Agave Syrup
15ml Almond Milk
15g White Chocolate
18-20g Coconut Flour
28-30g Gluten-Free Oat Flour
5g Vanilla Pods
1. Mix all ingredients together until you form a delicious cookie dough (taste it to ensure it’s sweet enough! Feel free to add cinnamon to it too – or allspice!) See the image below for what your protein bar dough will look like.
2. Shape your dough into bars (cutting the edges off if you’d like to end up with perfect rectangles).
1. If you fear that you won’t be able to control yourself around these bars, e.g. if you think that you’ll end up eating them all if you make them (side note: I wouldn’t blame you for it; they’re THAT good), just freeze them! And defrost a bar whenever you want to eat one.
2. Feel free to sub cashew nut butter for almond butter if you have no cashew available or if, for whatever reason, you and cashews don’t mesh well. You can also use peanut butter or, if you’re allergic to nuts, go with sunflower seed butter.
3. To lower the carb-count of your bars, consider subbing the white chocolate for sugar-free white chocolate. Or dark chocolate. Or, you could take the chocolate out completely and add some ground nuts instead!
