The quest for a minimum ingredient homemade protein bar is over. So is the one for a non bake bar. That's right - this thing is raw, and only has 4 ingredients. It also has 25 grams of protein. Let's dig in.
To make 4 bars you need:
1 medium banana, ripe
3 scoops whey protein ( I used vanilla)
1 cup almond meal
1 tablespoon coconut oil (feel free to use butter)
Use a blender/chopper to mix everything very well. You will get a sticky raw cookie dough consistency. Form a large bar shape, roll in almond meal and roll and press in baking paper. Place in the fridge for 3 hours and your bars are ready. Take out, cut in 4 and roll the edges in almond meal one more time. It's very tempting to eat the bars before they have thickened up in the fridge - try to control yourself- I dare you.
The great news is that these bars are actual protein bars, not just delicious bars - they can be a whole meal. Enjoy!
