I recently shared my Homemade Chocolate Chip Protein Bars with you all, and they are amazing!
Since I make these weekly from my husband I am taking requests from him. So far we have tried these Oatmeal Cinnamon Raisin, Chocolate Mint, Coconut Pecan, Chocolate Chip, Gingerbread, and a No Bake Chocolate Brownie flavor that is not a protein bar, but make the same way.
Seriously, there has not been a bad one in the mix.
I hope to sprinkle in all the flavors in my recipe posts that I have been making at some point for you all to try yourself. But really, they are just too easy. You just take the base dough and an add and subtract the flavors and ingredients you want, I think you could make most any flavor.
Let me know if you try these or any of my other kinds!
Oatmeal Cinnamon Raisin Protein Bars
20 minPrep Time
20 minTotal Time
- 13/4 cup Almond Flour or Meal, lightly packed
- 1/2 cup rolled oats, separated (use Gluten free if needed)
- 6 tablespoons Plain Brown Rice Protein (or other favorite plain protein powder)
- 10 small dates chopped (2 oz)
- 1/8 cup honey
- 1/4- 1/2 cup Palm Sugar (if n/a available use 1/4- 1/2 cup powdered sugar and 1/2 tsp molasses)
- Optional- 10 drops of liquid Stevia, you may want this if you use 1/4 cup sugar vs 1/2 cup
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1-2 tsp Cinnamon (depending on how strong you like that flavor)
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 tablespoon plus 1 tsp water
- 2 tablespoons powdered sugar for rolling (I used organic)
- 1/4-1/2 cup raisins
- (optional) 1-2 ounces melted white chocolate for drizzling
- Prepare a sheet of wax paper on your counter with powdered sugar for rolling.
- Add Almond flour, 1/4 cup oats, protein powder, dates, honey, sugar, salt, cinnamon, vanilla, stevia (optional) and 1 tablespoon water to food processor.
- Process on high until mixture comes together as a dough (should only take 1-3 minutes).
- The dough should feel kind like play dough
- If too dry and not coming together drizzle in 1 extra tsp or more of water and continue processing
- Add in 1/4 cup reserved rolled oats and pulse to combine but not grind up the oats.
- Remove dough from your food processor and dump on prepared wax paper
- Roll with a rolling pin or press out dough
- Pour raisins over dough and press into dough
- Fold the dough over it’s self several times in order to distribute the raisins through out the dough
- Press or roll dough into a 7x7 square on the wax paper (should end up around 3/4 inch thick)
- With a pizza cutter or knife cut into 10-12 equal sized bars
- Place on a plate or board and freeze for about 15 minutes
- Remove from freezer and separate bars
- (optional) Drizzle with melted white chocolate by either using a fork or spoon or by loading the melted chocolate into a Ziploc plastic baggie and snipping a tiny hole in the corner and using it as a piping bag.
- Return bars to the refrigerator or freezer to harden.
- Store in an airtight container or bag in the freezer or refrigerator.
- Should keep in the refrigerator at least a week (probably more) and in the freezer around a month.
- They will be hard from the freezer or refrigerator and soften up when left at room temperature.
