E2 Protein Bars

This recipe is super easy, insanely nutritious (a MUST for school/work lunches, because it will give protein & healthy fats… ie. brain power!) and adapted directly from the amazing Oh She Glows blog (I love that vegan food blog!!!)

Health Notes: vegan, gluten free & nut free

EFFORT:

  • 10min prep
  • 10min refrigerate/freeze

Ingredients:

  • 1.5 cups gluten-free rolled oats, blended into a flour
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened/unflavoured vegan protein powder
  • 1/2 cup rice crisp cereal
  • 1/4-1/2 teaspoon fine grain sea salt, to taste
  • 1/2 cup sunflower seed butter (raw is ideal)
  • 1/2 cup pure maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 3 tablespoons mini dark chocolate chips (great options are Camino, or Enjoy Life)
  • 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 seed butter, maple syrup, and vanilla. Stir well to combine. If the mixture is a bit dry, add a splash of water, or non-dairy milk and mix again.
  3. Press into pan and roll out with a pastry roller until smooth. Place into the freezer for 10min.
  4. Melt the chocolate chips and coconut oil together in a small pot over low heat. When half of the chips have melted, remove from heat and stir until smooth.
  5. Remove from freezer and slice into bars. Drizzle with melted chocolate and freeze again until set. Store in the freezer in an air-tight freezer bag, or container.
