Dec 23, 2020

One of the best and healthiest on-the-go snacks that you can make at home

Stay away from preservatives and undesirable ingredients with these super easy to prepare protein bars that you can make at home – and experiment with adding some of your favorite flavors.

Sugar-free Cinnamon Protein Bars


  • Ripe, mashed banana – 3/4 cup
  • Chickpeas – 400 grams
  • Almond butter – 1/2 cup
  • Finely ground flax seeds – 1/3 cup
  • Cinnamon powder – 1 tablespoon
  • Vanilla essence- 1 teaspoon (optional)

How to Prepare

  • Preheat the oven to 176 degree Celsius.
  • Add the ingredients to a food processor and blend until it is uniform. Alternatively, mash and knead with your hands.
  • Grease an 8×8 inch baking pan and pour the blended ingredients into the pan.
  • Bake in the oven for 20 minutes.

Chocolate, Nuts, and Sea Salt Protein Bars


  • Whole almonds – 1 cup
  • Raw cashews – 1 cup
  • Pitted dates – 1 cup
  • Protein powder of your choice – 3/4 cup
  • Unsweetened cocoa powder – 3 tablespoons
  • Water
  • Sea salt
  • Cacao nibs or unsweetened chocolate chips

How to Prepare

  • Add the cashews and almonds into a blender and process finely until they turn into a buttery paste.
  • Now, add dates into the mix incrementally and blend until they are thoroughly incorporated.
  • Continue blending while you add the protein powder, cocoa powder and a small amount of water until the mixture becomes a crumbly dough. It should have enough stickiness to stay together when you press it between your fingers. If they crumble, add a little more water.
  • Pour the mixture into a wide baking pan lined with wax paper and press the dough with a flat bottomed pan until it becomes completely flat.
  • Sprinkle cacao nibs/chocolate chips, chopped almonds and sea salt over the dough. Press the larger lumps into the dough.
  • Refrigerate the dough until it becomes firm. Cut the flattened dough into bars and wrap individual pieces with wax paper and seal them in a ziplock bag.
  • Store the bars in a refrigerator.

Quinoa, Chia Seeds, and Almond Protein Bars


  • Dry quinoa seeds of any variety – 1/2 cup
  • Chia seeds of any variety – 1/2 cup
  • Flax seeds finely ground – 2 tablespoons
  • Rolled oats – 1 cup
  • Pink Himalayan salt – 1/4 teaspoon
  • Cardamom – 1 teaspoon
  • Cinnamon – 1 teaspoon
  • Coarsely chopped almonds – 1/2 cup
  • Honey – 1/4 cup
  • Brown rice syrup – 1/4 cup
  • Almond butter – 1/2 cup

How to Prepare

  • Preheat the oven to 176 degree Celsius.
  • Use a large mixing bowl to mix together the different dry ingredients i.e the chia and quinoa seeds, flax seeds, cinnamon, cardamom, rolled oats, salt and chopped almonds.
  • Blend the almond butter, honey, and brown rice syrup together in a microwave-safe bowl. Heat in the oven and blend.
  • Pour the molten ingredients over the dry mix and stir thoroughly with a non-stick spatula. In case they begin to stick together firmly, use your fingers to knead the mixture well.
  • When mixed well, move the dough to a baking dish lined with parchment paper. Pat the dough until it is flat and even.
  • Bake in the oven for about 15 minutes and remove when finished, and allow it to cool for 10 minutes.
  • Separate the slab from the parchment paper and allow it to cool on a wire rack.
  • Cut the finished slab into protein bars with a pizza cutter.
  • Wrap cooled bars in wax paper and refrigerate.
