Snickers Protein Bars: Low Carb, Sugar and Gluten Free (Paleo, Vegan Option)

Never be hangry again with my high protein take on your favourite choccy bar! Prep these for a great week of afternoon boosts to smash out your best workouts!

For this recipe I used Bare Blends Cacao WPI. I love this brand because it’s Australian owned, organic, grass fed, and free from all the artificial yuk that lots of other protein powders contain! It blends in silky smooth when used as a shake and in my baking too, the texture turns out great! Did I mention it’s super yummy!

Ingredients

For the base

  • ¾ cup Almond flour
  • 1 cup protein powder of choice (I used Bare Blends cacao WPI )
  • 2 tbsp cacao/cocoa powder
  • ½ cup nut butter of choice, I used peanut
  • 3 tbsp honey/maple syrup or granulated sweetener of choice for low carb
  • ¼ cup almond milk

1.       Mix all dry ingredients

2.       Add wet ingredients and mix together

3.       Transfer batter to a lined pan and refrigerate

My special caramel

  • 3 tbsp coconut butter
  • 3 tbsp almond butter
  • 1tbsp honey (maple syrup for vegan) or granulated sweetener for low carb

1.       Mix altogether in a bowl

2.       Heat in the microwave in 30 second intervals until silky smooth

3.       Pour over the base and top with extra chopped peanuts

4.       Put in fridge or freezer until set

Chocolate Coating

  • 1 cup dark choc chips (dairy free if vegan, I chose a quality 80% dark chocolate)

1.       Melt in microwave in 30 second intervals

2.       Pour over the top and put back in fridge until it’s firm

eat up! Xx
