Chocolate Protein Bar

Chocolate Protein Bar

Makes 12 – 50g bars. Each bar contains 9 grams of protein.

  • Ingredients:
  • 1 cup pitted dates
  • 1/4 cup almond butter
  • 1 cup whole almonds – roughly chopped
  • 1 1/2 cup Cloud 9 Granola Bar Mix
  • 2 scoops (62g) chocolate protein powder
  • 1 tbsp cocoa, sifted
  • 1/2 cup rice milk

Directions:

  1. Line an 8”x8” baking pan with parchment.
  2. Preheat oven to 350⁰F (175⁰C).
  3. Combine almonds and Cloud 9 Granola Bar Mix on a large baking sheet.
  4. Toast in oven for 10-15 minutes, until golden brown.
  5. Set aside to cool.
  6. Soak dates in hot water (10-15 min.) or simmer with water in a small sauce pan on medium heat, until soft.
  7. Drain excess liquid from dates.
  8. In a small food processor, pulse dates until they are pureed. This will be quite thick.
  9. In a medium sized bowl, add date puree, almond butter, chocolate protein powder, cocoa and rice milk.
  10. Mix until a smooth mixture is formed.
  11. Add toasted mixture and stir until combined.
  12. Press into prepared pan and freeze until firm, about 2 hours.
  13. Cut into desired pieces and wrap individually.

Store in an airtight container in the fridge.
