After we made these bars for the first time, we swear to you, we simply couldn’t stop eating them! So we suggest that you have someone nearby to share them with, or else you might also end up eating them all, too. They are so unbelievably good: like hazelnut-y chocolate cookie dough. You can play around with this recipe by, for example, using cashew instead of almond butter, or adding chocolate chips to the dough. You can also coat the bars in melted dark chocolate if you want to kick things up a notch!
Here are the ingredients (and quantities) necessary to prepare 8 delicious Vegan Chocolate Protein Bars.
- 1/2 cup pea protein powder
- 5 heaping tablespoons smooth almond butter
- 4 tablespoons cocoa
- 2 tablespoons date syrup
- 6 tablespoons almond milk
- 1/4 cup chopped hazelnuts
- Stevia drops to taste (add a couple to your dough to start off with and if, by the end, your mix isn’t sweet enough, add a couple more drops of stevia)
- In a medium-size bowl, mix all the ingredients using a spatula until you get a dough that you can shape with your hands. If your dough is too wet or sticky, add a bit more of the cocoa powder and/or pea protein.
- Divide this dough into 8 balls and then shape them into rectangles. You can do this individually or, if you prefer, you can flatten the entire batch of dough onto a nonstick tray, put a sheet of parchment paper on top, roll it with a rolling pin, and then slice the dough into 8 bars. It’s up to you to decide. And that’s it, you’re done with your vegan chocolate protein bars!
