No Bake Protein Bars

Well logs really

Ok, so they do look like poos BUT I assure you they taste amazing!

I was inspire to create these bad boys after a TERRIBLE protein bar eating experience. I’m not here to name and shame but I can simply guarantee you I will NEVER eat another package protein bar in my life! They are so not my thing anyway but you know, it was lying around, I nibbled. I regretted it.

I also can’t stress the importance of GOOD QUALITY PROTEIN POWDER. Mine is vegan (not because I’m a vegan), dairy free (I’m so over whey protein!), gluten free, non GMO, sugar free and so tasty even mixed with water.

These little logs are super easy to prepare and will make about 8, you need these in your life around 3pm or even as a little mid morning pick me up.

Ingredients:

Generous Tbsp each of Peanut butter and cacao & peanut butter spread (both Mayvers brand)
Slurp of coconut water
2 scoops of Vanilla Nuzest protein powder or similar non dairy protein powder
4 tbsp Oats
1 tbsp Rice Malt Syrup (Pureharvest brand)
Coconut shreds to decorate
1Tbsp Dark Choc finely grated (I used Willie’s Cacao 100% cacao, I got this aaaages ago form a speciality imported foods store but pretty sure it’s available in Australia now)

Using a food processor thing (where the blender attachment just inserts in the top) whizz till everything except the coconut water. It’ll look like a crumb base. When this happens add a tiny splash of coconut water and blend again. The texture should change and start to become more sticky looking, a little like cookie dough. I added a few slurps of coconut water before I was happy with my texture. Just test it out and see if you can roll it and it holds its shape. Less is more at the end of the day, go easy tiger!

Next, with wet hands, start rolling the mixture into log shapes or even balls. When you’ve done all your logs, cover in coconut. Simply lay out a few tbsps of coconut shreds and roll the logs through.

Place on a non stick plate or in a bpa free container and place in the fridge to firm up slightly.

Enjoy!
