Easy homemade protein bars that taste just like a cinnamon roll! Save yourself money by making your own protein bars; they are no-bake, made with a few simple ingredients and soooo much better than store-bought!
Prep Time15 mins
Total Time15 mins
- 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
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.
