Recipe for almond butter protein bars
1/2 10 oz. bag of chocolate chips (I use Ghirardelli dark chocolate with cocoa chips).
1/4 C. Almond Butter (I use the no salt or no sugar added, because I do not want them to taste too sweet)
1 Tbsp Honey
1/4 C. Coconut Flour
1/4 C. Raw Oatmeal
Melt the chocolate chips in the sauce pan on very low heat, and begin to stir after a couple minutes of heating. When all the chips have melted, then place the melted mix into the small square container, then place into the refrigerator.
Mix together the almond butter, honey, flour, oatmeal and nuts in the small mixing bowl.
The amount of almonds and walnuts I use is just a small container cup full. You can use the amount of nuts to whatever your desired amount is.
Then place the mixture into the small square container placing it on top of the hardened chocolate layer.
Place the dish back into the refrigerator and let it cool for about 30-45 minutes. You can then cut slices into about 16 small bite size pieces, which makes it convenient when I am on the go then I can just grab one or two and enjoy some sweet protein energy for the day. These protein bars are best when kept in the refrigerator.
**Bonus:** Add a handful of crushed corn flakes to spice up the flavor and texture of your protein bars.

This looks scrumptious – for when I am longing for a snack but don’t want to be unhealthy! This would probably be good for on the go snack when my son mountain bikes – thank you so much!
Exactly! I like to reach in the fridge and grab a couple pieces as I head out the door. They are delish! I have been making my bars recently without the chocolate.. just to make them even healthier. Hope you enjoy them!
