Peanut Butter & Chocolate Protein Bars

Peanut Butter & Chocolate Protein Bars

Some foods should come with a warning label, a ‘proceed with caution’ or an ‘M’ for moreish – this recipe definitely falls into that category!

Now, there is something interesting about this recipe – we want to warn you that you might freak out at the first ingredient or at least raise an eyebrow or two and think it controversial. Some of you might think it’s mad combining it with chocolate and peanut butter but… trust us! You’ll never know if you don’t try! It makes the filling really velvety in texture and oh-so-smooth. It also balances the rest of the flavours to perfection so we highly recommend you give it a shot!

The recipe (and the big reveal) is below:




1 small cooked beetroot
1/2 cup a great tasting chocolate whey protein powder 
4 tablespoons coconut flour
1-2 tablespoons peanut butter (depending on how peanut buttery you want your bars)
1/2 tablespoon Golden Syrup 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 (i.e. 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 (or in your bag when you step out the door!)

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.

    • That’s work? You’d just need a bit less milk I’d imagine and possibly a bit less coconut flour? Play around with it and report back. I will try it too 🙂
