Welcome to a new recipe for Chocolate Orange Protein Bars! These protein bars are vegan and 100% gluten-free. Try them with different flavours of protein powder too! The chocolate and orange is wildly delicious flavour combination. The bars are very chocolatey, soft, and squishy – more like brownies than protein bars.
2 big tbsp (39g) roasted almond or peanut butter
1 scoop (24g) chocolate or vanilla veggie protein powder (Vegan Wondershake would be perfect here)
1 big tsbp (15g) cocoa powder
1 tbsp (around 10g) ground almonds
1/8 cup (around 54ml) almond milk
1 tbsp (13g) maple syrup
1 tbsp (7.5) freeze-dried oranges
1. Mix it all in a bowl with your hands until you get a lovely dough. If it’s too wet, add more ground almonds, if it’s too dry, add more milk!) Taste it to ensure it’s perfect (but don’t eat it all – you want to save it or your bars!)
2. Press the dough onto a baking tray lined with baking paper or foil.
3. Refrigerate and then slice into bars. If you want to take things further, you can then coat them in melted chocolate too!
