Vegan Hearty Crunchy Bars
These bars are unlike any other protein bar you’ve tried before! Entirely plant-based and made with all nutritious ingredients, these chocolate-y bars will be your new favorite mid-day snack or even dessert.
Our only warning: they’re so good, you may want the whole pan!
1 scoop ChocolateNutraVegan protein powder
½ cup coconut oil (melted, but not hot)
½ cup cocoa powder
½ cup sunflower seed butter
¼ cup maple syrup
½ tsp vanilla extract
1 cup puffed quinoa
Line a casserole pan with parchment paper.
- In a large bowl, combine all ingredients and stir until combined.
- Pour and flatten mixture into pan & place in the freezer for 10 minutes.
- Cut into bites or bars & store in a tupperware or keep in pan and cover to save!
Even though these bars may taste like candy bars, their nutritional value doesn’t even compare! The combination of puffed quinoa, sunflower seed butter and NutraVegan offers a hearty serving of protein and antioxidants. Learn more about one antioxidant in particular, quercetin, inthis recent blog post! The sweet flavor of these chocolate bars comes from all natural, plant-based ingredients -- not the fillers used in candy!
