Primal banana protein bars

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!

  1. These are AMAZING!!!! Yummmm!

  2. I am glad you like them - I just rolled some in oats and the oats keep them even firmer ;)

  3. I made these yesterday, and they turned out so good! I couldn't make them look as pretty as yours, but there were very delicious and simple to make! :)

  4. I photo-shopped mine :) Just kidding! Glad they tasted good and you enjoyed them!

  5. Have you tried freezing them? I actually made them into small "balls" and ended up with about 18 of them. I'm hoping I can freeze them!

  6. Tracey please let me know what happens if you freeze them :) I haven't tried ;)
