Healthy Homemade Protein Bars (gluten-free & high fiber)

Healthy home made protein bars are made gluten-free and high in fiber. These bars come in three flavors: peanut butter, birthday cake and chocolate chunk.

 

Have you every looked the ingredient list on the back of a protein bar? Scary right? There’s always a list of ingredients I’ve never heard of and can’t pronounce so I set out to make a protein bar using minimal ingredients. Although, I do find making these bars time consuming, they are delicious and totally worth the extra time it takes.


*I am currently working on a revised version of this recipe for larger and simpler batches.

All of these bars have at least 27g of protein and 24g of fiber! The base bar (before adding flavors) are under 300 calories and roughly 34g carbohydrates. All of these bars include the magic ingredient: VitaFiber Syrup!  VitaFiber is a magical syrup that is GMO-free, sugar-free, gluten-free and high in fiber! You can purchase it here http://vitafiber.myshopify.com/ I made three flavors. Each recipe makes one bar.

In a small bowl mix together peanut butter and 1 tbsp. protein powder. Separate into 5-7 pieces, roll into ball and set aside. Mix almond flour, protein powder, powdered peanut butter and stevia in a bowl and set aside. In a small pan, on low heat warm the vitafiber and vanilla extract until small bubbles form. Turn off heat and slowly add flour/protein mixture. Mix as well as you can then pour mixture between a folded piece of parchment paper and kneed until mixed entirely. Fold in peanut butter balls.
