Description

No-bake protein bars made with matcha, mint and plant protein powder! The bars are gluten-free, vegan, and easy-to-make, too.


Ingredients

Scale
  • 11/2 cups rolled oats (certified GF, as needed)
  • 1/2 cup vanilla vegan protein powder
  • 3 tablespoons matcha powder
  • 2 tablespoons ground flaxseed meal
  • 1/4 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 1/2 cup almond butter
  • 2/3 cup almond milk
  • 3 tablespoons pure maple syrup
  • 3/4 teaspoon pure peppermint extract
  • 3 to 4 tablespoons cacao nibs

Instructions

  1. Grease or spray 10 cups of a standard size muffin tin.
  2. Process the oats in a food processor until finely ground; add the protein powder, matcha, flaxseed meal, and salt; pulse to combine.
  3. Add the almond milk, almond butter, maple syrup, and peppermint extract; pulse until blended and mixture comes together into a dough.
  4. Remove dough and roll into an even log (any size); slice crosswise into 9 equal pieces. Roll each piece into a ball and press evenly into prepared cups.
  5. Loosely cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours. Remove from tin and store as directed (be sure to eat one immediately, too—for quality control 🙂

Notes

Storage: Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 1 week or freezer for 3 months. Will keep, un-refrigerated, in a lunch bag/purse for transport during the day.
