Almond Butter Cookie Dough Protein Bars

A protein-packed, 6-ingredient snack! These protein bars are naturally vegan and gluten free, and they taste like cookie dough!

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Add almond protein powder and almond flour to a medium bowl. Whisk to combine.
  2. In a smaller bowl, combine your almond butter, coconut oil, and maple syrup. Whisk to combine.
  3. Add your wet ingredients to your dry ingredients, and mix with a rubber spatula, switching to clean hands once the mixture gets stiff. You’re looking for a cookie dough consistency that easily forms a ball of dough. If it’s too dry, add a wee bit more coconut oil. If it’s too wet, add some more almond flour.
  4. Add your chocolate chips and mix thoroughly.
  5. Line an 8×8 square baking pan with parchment paper, and push your dough into HALF of the pan***. Use a bench scraper or measuring cup to compact the mixture into a flat dough.
  6. Cover the dough to set in the fridge overnight.
  7. Remove the dough from the baking dish and cut into 8 bars. Store in an air-tight container in the fridge.

Notes

* It’s important to spoon and level your protein powder and flour into your measuring cup (versus just scooping it with the measuring cup itself). You don’t want to over-measure these ingredients or your bars will be really dry and crumbly.

** I used a drippy almond butter here. If your almond butter is thick, you may need to adjust the other liquid ingredients to get to the right texture. You’re looking for a cookie dough texture. My almond butter was also salted, so if you’re using unsalted, add a pinch of salt too!

*** I like thicker bars, so I only filled half the pan with the dough. If you don’t mind thin bars, you can fill the entire tray, or just double the recipe if you want a full tray of thick bars!
