These protein bars are super easy to make and are delicious! They are also great to have pre or post-workout, as bananas are full of potassium, manganese and carbohydrates, which aids muscle function, bone development, metabolism and provides energy. If the batter is not thick enough, feel free to add more flour. You can omit or limit the sweetener, as bananas can be quite sweet on their own.
What you need
125g almond meal
125g coconut flour
50g of good quality protein powder
1 medium banana, mashed
100ml of milk of your choice (or coconut water)
Two heaped tablespoons of honey
One tablespoon of chia seeds
One tablespoon of chopped cashews (or nuts of your choice)
One teaspoon of cinnamon
One tablespoon of coconut flakes
One tablespoon melted coconut oil
One – two tablespoons of natural nut butter
Coconut oil spray (organic is best)
How to Make
Spray baking paper with coconut oil spray and line a baking tin.
In a mixing bowl - mix the flour, protein powder, stevia, chia seeds and cinnamon.
In a separate bowl, combine the mashed banana, chopped nuts, coconut oil, coconut flakes and honey. Pour onto dry mixture and mix together.
Slowly pour the milk in, and continue mixing until a thick batter has formed.
Pour evenly into the baking tin.
Put in freezer for one hour.
Remove and slice into bars!
These are great pre or post-workout, if you need a protein hit or just looking for an sweet afternoon snack. They are great with a cup of coffee too.
