The title of these bars says it all. I created them in my kitchen with ingredients I was craving at the moment. You can eat these bars as a healthy snack that will fill you up, a breakfast bar on the go, or as an after-dinner dessert. I put a few of my favorite things together in this dreamy bar, including coconut and dark chocolate.
This recipe makes 15 Perfect Petites bars using an Epicure Perfect Petite silicone pan. I love this specific bar pan because they make the perfect portions for a single serving taking out the guesswork of traditional protein ball rolling. And it's super easy to clean! Double the recipe to make a whole tray.
The ingredients in this recipe can be modified to suit your dietary needs and taste preferences, so don't be afraid to experiment. Leave me a comment if you'd like some substitution suggestions.
1 cup Bobs Red Mill Gluten-free oats 1/2 cup unsweetened coconut 1/2 cup goji berries 1 scoop Epicure power up vanilla protein powder 3 Tbs Coconut oil melted 1 Tbs raw local honey 1 tsp Epicure cinnamon Filtered Water
Sugar-Free Dark Chocolate chips (optional)
Makes 15 servings
Combine all the above. Add a little splash of water and mix by hand, adding more water until a dough-like consistency forms, shown in the first picture above. Once you have your dough ready, start filling your perfect petite pan. About 1 1/2 tablespoons of the mixture will fill each cavity.￼
Chill to set about 30 minutes.
After the bars are set, microwave some sugar-free chocolate chips (optional) until melted, spread a thin layer of the chocolate on top of each minibar, and pop them back in the refrigerator for a few minutes. They are now ready to enjoy.￼
Keep these dreamy protein bars refrigerated in an air-tight container for two weeks, or you can freeze them. To freeze the bars, wrap them individually in plastic wrap, then place them in an air-tight freezer container. Second option; freeze the bars together in an air-tight freezer container with wax paper between the layers.
