Birthday Cake Protein Bars

January 23, 2017

After speaking with a couple of my clients overseas I realised that it can be difficult for them to get hold of tasty protein bar flavours like we have here in the UK so I thought i'd create a recipe for them. 

 

This one got me thinking about all kinds of flavour possibilities but I thought i'd start with one of my favourites - birthday cake! 

 

This recipe makes 5 full size bars or can be cut into mini bites if you fancy something a little smaller. They're great for providing a little sweet hit to take the edge of a sugar craving. They also travel well too, just wrap them up in a little cling film or foil & they're good to go. 

 

Servings: Makes 5 bars (each bar can be cut into smaller pieces if desired) 

Macros per bar: 167kcal / 13g protein / 14.5g carbs / 6g fat / 2g fibre

 

Ingredients: 

50g vanilla protein powder

50g smooth cashew butter 

80g oats (regular or gluten free)

2 tsp honey

1/2 tsp vanilla extract

Dash almond milk 

Rainbow Sprinkles 

 

Instructions: 

1. Place all ingredients (except in a food processor (add milk a TINY bit at a time) mix should be thick like cookie dough not runny or sticky. 

2. 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! 

3.  Flatten mix so top is smooth & add sprinkles to taste. To stop the sprinkles coming off when you eat the bars gently press them into the top of the bars using the back of a spoon. 

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

5. Eat within 3 days :-)
