Easy Homemade Protein Bar

Easy Homemade Protein Bars don’t always seem to be the best and easy option. Most of the time its just easier to go to the store and buy a protein bar. But if you are like me, I love  easy. And with 4 kids, jumping into the car and heading to the store gives me a headache just thinking about it. It was almost like I just had ‘one more errand” just to go and get my protein bar. So with that, I decided to just make it myself and even save some money in the process. Making these copy cat Quest bars are definitely cheaper than buying them!

Ok, so these babies require just a little bit of leg work before you sit down to make them. The key ingredient is called VitaFiber Syrup. It’s basically a sweet, low calorie syrup that helps add fiber and binds the ingredients of the bar together. You can buy it here. Also you can put the bars in and 8 x 8 pan. But I prefer to actually use a silicone mold. Here is a link to the one I use.

Cookie Dough Protein Bar

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Mix together in a bowl: syrup, protein, almond flour and chocolate chips. Dough will be sticky and on the dry side
  2. Place in silicone molds (like this one) and cover with plastic wrap. Allow to set in fridge for at least 1 hour. Then wrap each one individually
  3. This next step is not mandatory. You can eat them just as is. They will be soft and chewy, but I like mine to be warm and gooey. I will place a bar on a sheet of aluminum foil, sprayed with cooking spray. Place under broiler (on low) for 3-4 minutes. Keep checking back to make sure its not too brown.
