Ingredients

  • 1 scoop vanilla protein powder (40 g; a heaping 1/2 cup)
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 cup rolled oats (96 g)
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil (26 g)
  • 1/2 cup natural almond butter (118 g)
  • 1/4 cup honey (74 g)
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon water *if needed
  • sea salt for sprinkling

Instructions

  • Combine the protein powder, cinnamon and rolled oats in a 7 cup food processor fitted with a steel blade. Blend until the oats are powdery and blended.
  • In a microwave safe bowl, melt the coconut oil. Pour into the food processor.
  • Add the almond butter, honey and vanilla extract (I like weighing it in the food processor to save on dishes)
  • Process until it clumps and forms a ball in the fist of your hand.
  • If mixture feels dry, add 1 tablespoon of water and process again.
  • Line a loaf pan with parchment paper. Scoop the protein bar mixture into the pan and press firmly with a spatula.
  • Sprinkle with flaky sea salt.
  • Freeze for a minimum of 30 minutes before slicing into bars.
  • Keep bars in the fridge as they become soft at room temperature.
