Caramel Whey Protein Bars

Caramel Whey Protein Bars

This recipe right here – for delicious caramel-flavorued whey protein bars – tastes toffee-sweet and almost fudgy! It’s a flavour that, when combined with the chocolate, is an absolute winner. This recipe also demonstrates a very interesting point: that protein bars made with whey are stickier compared to ones made with casein and harder to shape. In a way, this makes them more like store-bought bars, in terms of consistency and texture. Also, by adding oats here, the calories are also more in line with commercially available bars (higher in carbs than protein).  One way to up their protein content would be to add some pea protein too or even a tbsp or two or casein? Give this recipe a shot though, play with it, and let us know how you get on!


1/2 cup ground almonds
1 cup toffee flavoured whey
3 tablespoons coconut flour
1 tablespoon sugar-free caramel
1/8 cup instant oats (or just more ground almonds + a bit more coconut four)
4 squares 90% dark chocolate (to coat)


1. Blended together (minus the chocolate), bound with a bit of water (1 tablespoon at a time) until a pasty and mouldable consistency is reached

2. Melt the chocolate in a bain marie (a glass bowl on top of a pot of boiling water) and proceed to shape your bars into rectangles. When the chocolate has melted, dunk the bars in there and then move them over to the freezer for about 30 minutes.

  1. what’s binding all those ingredients together? if you blend all those things you would just get a crumbly mixture of powders… i think you missed something

    eggs, nut butter, water…?
