Homemade Protein Bar

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.

Have you met Joanne, your Scottish CYCLE instructor? She has brought her passion for CYCLE to Magnolia and The Woodlands for the last two+ years. 

Get To Know Joanne... from Joanne: 
"I love all things CYCLE. Les Mills has been my passion for over 15 years as a participant before I dared myself to certify as an instructor. I currently teach Les Mills Sprint, Bodypump, and The Trip and I am recently “spinning” certified so I’m getting some playlists together to unleash on the group cycle community. 

Music drives me. I love most genres but admit I’m not always a huge fan of the boy band groups. I love pop, hip hop, EDM, and country (since living in Texas)

I prefer traditional style indoor cycling...nothing too complicated or hard to follow but always a challenge.

Inspirational quote: “If it doesn’t challenge you, it’s never gonna change you.”

Come say hi! It's the members that make me LEVEL UP.  I love FITNESS PROJECT members' energy and commitment. ❤️

My Cycle Schedule:
• Monday 9:30 am Panther Creek - Les Mills Sprint
• Friday 12.30 pm Panther Creek - Les Mills Sprint
• Saturday 8:30 am Magnolia - Les Mills Sprint
