Post Workout Chocolate Raspberry Protein Bars

Well hello there Mr. Chocolate Cake! 

Wanted to share my Chocolate Raspberry Vegan Protein Bar recipe….  This is my best vegan protein bar yet!  I ate one after my workout yesterday and my muscles AND my mouth were very happy!

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup oat flour
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 2 flax “eggs” (this is just 2 TBSP of ground flax seeds blended with 6 TBSP of water until the mixture is goopy)
  • 1/2 cup stevia (I used the stevia that you can bake with that measures like sugar BUT NOT THE SUGAR BLEND!!!!!)
  • 2 tsp. baking soda
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 4 scoops PlantFusion rasberry chocolate protein powder (you can use any chocolate vegan protein powder you want really but the raspberry gives a really nice flavor!)
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 and 1/2 cups of vanilla unsweetened almond milk

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 F

Make your flax “eggs” and let sit.

Mix all of the dry ingredients and then in a separate bowl, mix the wet ingredients (including your flax “eggs”). Combine the wet and dry ingredients until well mixed.

You can pour this into a 9×9 baking square pan or you can do what I did and make square “muffins” by using a bar pan.  Either way, they will be delish. 

Bake for 25 minutes (test for done-ness – your oven time may vary).

Makes 9 servings.

    • That is SOOOOOO great Lisa! I am so glad you were brave and went for it! Vegan food is so awesome because it is food that we are already familar with – beans, fruits, veggies, grains… No need to fear! 🙂
