Red Velvet Protein Bars


Another favourite flavour....Red Velvet!

Like my birthday cake protein bars, these are no bake & gluten free. You can make these ones using either a vanilla or a chocolate protein powder. Use chocolate for a richer flavour.

As well as a snack, i've been having these as a dessert, sliced & stacked up with some toppings such as low calorie syrup, sprinkles, strawberries & raspberries. Slicing them into smaller squares is a great way to get a sweet hit whilst keeping the calories a little lower too.

Servings: Makes 5 bars

Macros per bar: 185kcal / 13.5g protein / 14g carbs / 7.5g fat / 3g fibre

Ingredients:

2 scoops vanilla or chocolate protein powder

80g oats (regular or gluten free)

50g almond butter

1 tbsp Choc Shot (available from the hot chocolate aisle of most supermarkets)

Dash of almond milk

1 tsp red food colouring

15g milk chocolate chips

Optional - white icing pen to decorate

Instructions:

1. In a blender or food processor grind oats & protein powder into a flour.

2. Add almond butter, Choc Shot, food colouring & almond milk & mix until stuck together. Add the milk a TINY bit at a time (the mix should be thick like cookie dough).

3. Place mix in a square tin of choice, lined with baking paper or cling film (for easy removal). I use a disposable foil brownie tray, available in most supermarkets when I make these to save washing up!

4. Flatten mix so top is smooth, sprinkle the chocolate chips on top & press them in using the back of a spoon. Decorate as desired with icing pen.

4. Allow the bars to harden in the fridge for at least 4 hours (overnight is best).

5. Eat within 3 days :-)
