protein bars

 

Yes! I wanted to make protein bars for months as a healthy snack or after training and finally succeeded! In just 10 minutes you make this tasty handy-healthy snack!

On the internet, there are enough protein bars available. Pretty tasty but also often pricey. I made a healthy, cheaper version with as many natural products as possible.

The proteins in the bars are extracted from protein powder, nuts, whey crispy and from low-fat quark. Pure chocolate contains many healthy properties but it gives the protein bar a bit more calories. You can of course also omit this but it is still very tasty with a layer of chocolate on top;).

What do we need? (for 3 or 4 bars)

  • 25 grams of vanilla protein powder (about 1 scoop)
  • 35 grams of walnuts or cashew nuts
  • 1 tbsp raw cocoa powder
  • 1 tbsp raw cocoa crisps
  • 3 el whey crispy (is about 25 grams)
  • 50 grams of dark chocolate (at least 75% cocoa)
  • coconut grater as decoration
  • optional: 2 tsp peanut butter or for less fat peanut butter powder
  • 3 tbsp (low-fat) curd cheese (about 60 grams)

Nutritional value per bar – 210 kcal. (with 3 bars)

  • proteins – 15 grams
  • carbohydrates – 10 grams
  • fats – 11 grams

Make & shake

  1. Let the chocolate melt in a bain-marie. (Au bain-marie is a large pan with a layer of water that you put in a bowl (water does not rise above the bowl) so that it heats up and melts the chocolate).
  2. Mix in a food processor the protein powder, the nuts, the peanut butter/powder and cottage cheese (not too fine).
  3. Knead the mixture together with the whey crispy and the cocoa crisps into a solid ball.
  4. The mixture should not be too sticky and not too dry. If it is too dry, you can add another teaspoon of water.
  5. Make a rectangle with a thickness of 1 cm from the kneadable ball (on a kitchen top or cutting plan).
  6. With the side of a large chef’s knife, you can press the sides well so that the lines are straight. For the beautiful, you can also cut the sides straight.
  7. Has the chocolate melted? Spread a layer of dark chocolate over the bars with a spoon and sprinkle some coconut grater over it to finish it.
  8. Half an hour in the fridge and you’re done with yummy honey! Enjoy!

Tip! You can keep them in the fridge for a few days. Do you want to keep them longer than in the freezer?
