Vegan Protein Bars

vegan-protein-bars.JPG

Per bar these have: 10g of protein, 17g of carbohydrates, 6g of fat and 180 calories. I have developed this recipe with as little fat as possible and as high protein per kcal as possible, without getting them to taste gross (they are delicious!)

Protein Bars, 10 bars

Ingredients

For the bars

  • 380 g chickpeas, drained

  • 1 1/5 cup rolled oats

  • 1/2 cup hemp seeds

  • 6 tbsp pea protein powder

  • 2 tbsp peanut butter, unsweetened

  • 16 dates

  • 1 tbsp plant milk

For the topping

  • 3 tbsp cacao nibs

Steps

  1. Rinse and drain the canned chickpeas and pit the dates (if you have medjool dates that are not that soft, soak in hot water for 10 minutes).

  2. Add all of the protein bar ingredients into a food processor or blender

  3. Blend until almost completely smooth (it's fine with some lumps here and there), add more plant milk if too dry

  4. Transfer the dough to a clean surface lined with parchment paper

  5. By using your hands, flatten the dough to a square so that you can make 10 bars out of it

  6. Add the cacao nibs on top, press them down with your hands so that they don't fall off

  7. Let the dough rest in the fridge for one hour

  8. When one hour has passed by, cut out 10 bars (per batch)

  9. You can store them in the fridge for up to one week or in your freezer for up to two months!
