No Bake Protein Bars

 

Ingredients:

·         1.5 cups gluten-free rolled oats, blended into a flour

·         1/2 cup vegan protein powder (I use Sunwarrior Warrior Blend Natural)

·         1/2 cup rice crisp cereal

·         1/4 teaspoon fine grain sea salt, to taste

·         1/2 cup almond butter or sunflower seed butter

·         1/2 cup pure maple syrup (or liquid sweetener of choice)

·         1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

·         3 tablespoons mini dark chocolate chips

·         1/2 tablespoon coconut oil

 

Directions:

1. Line an 8-inch square pan with a piece of parchment paper. Mix the oat flour, protein powder, rice crisp, and salt together in a large bowl.

2. Add in the nut/seed butter, maple syrup, and vanilla. Stir well to combine. If the mixture is a bit dry, add a splashof non-dairy milk and mix again.

3. Press into pan and put into the freezer.

4. Melt the chocolate chips and coconut oil together in a small bowl in the microwave.

5. After freezing the bars for about 5-10 minutes, remove from freezer and slice into bars. Drizzle with melted chocolate and freeze again until set. Store in the freezer for a week or longer in an air-tight freezer bag or container.
