Healthy Almond, Peanut-butter Chocolate Bars

A no-bake, vegan and gluten-free snack that is full of protein, and healthy fat. Have one of these as a snack, for breakfast, after a workout , or when you are on the run.

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup almond flour
  • 3/4 cup plant-based vanilla protein powder (I use Orgain)
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup (or Agave or honey)
  • 1/2 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1/3 cup vegan chocolate chips ( or regular chocolate, if you don’t need a vegan recipe)

Method

  1. In a medium-sized bowl, mix the peanut butter, almond flour, protein powder, and maple syrup, until well blended
  2. Line a 8×8 glass bowl with parchment paper
  3. Pour the mix into a glass container, spreading it evenly
  4. In a microwaveable bowl, mix in the chocolate chips and coconut oil, and melt in 10 second increments, till fully melted – about 30 seconds
  5. Pour the melted chocolate over the mix spreading evenly
  6. Refrigerate for 2 hours to set before cutting into cubes / bars to serve
