Chocolate Whey Protein Bars with… BEETROOT!?

Chocolate Whey Protein Bars with… BEETROOT!?

Yep, Chocolate Whey Protein Bars with beetroot. You read that right. Honestly, trust us on this one!

Adding beetroot into the recipe makes the filling really, really velvety in texture and oh-so-smooth. It also balances the rest of the flavours to perfection – you’ll be thanking us afterwards!

Some foods should come with a warning label. With maybe ‘proceed with caution’ or an ‘M’ for moreish. These homemade bars fall into that category. 

They consist of silk smooth dark chocolate with a creamy centre ooze from the peanut butter – so try to not eat them all in 60 seconds!

Here’s what you’ll need:




1 small cooked beetroot (see the Note below for substitutes if you really can’t get on board with the beetroot!)
1/2 cup a great tasting chocolate whey protein powder
4 tablespoons coconut flour
1-2 tablespoons peanut butter
1/2 tablespoon Zero Syrups
1/4 cup almond milk
3 tablespoons 100% cocoa powder
4 squares 90% dark chocolate


1. Make the filling mix by mixing all the above ingredients (except for the chocolate) in a big bowl. Then, shape the mix into four bars.

2. Melt your dark chocolate in a bain marie (a glass bowl on top of a pot of boiling water).

3. Once the chocolate has melted, dip your bars in there.

4. Transfer your bars to the fridge for a couple of hours or the freezer for 30 mins until the chocolate coating has set.

5. Munch or, if you plan to eat them later, wrap them in foil and put them in the fridge.

Note:  If you hate hate hate beetroot, you can still follow this recipe – just use a cooked small sweet potato instead! Or even some pumpkin puree or 1/2 an avocado.
