Homemade Protein Bars


There are many different reason’ s to eat protein bars.  Turns out getting ripped, shredded, and peeled are not among the reason’s I eat mine.  I think these are great for morning tea or afternoon tea, just with an added protein boost.  Depending on the protein powder you choose to use these can be dairy free and gluten free.  It works out to be WAY cheaper than buying rubbish protein bars from the supermarket with a load of ‘mystery’ ingredients.  The chocolate on top is optional also.  I have been going a bit crazy on protein bars/balls lately so stay tuned for many more shredding recipes ;).


1 cup of protein powder of your choice

1 cup pitted dried dates

1 cup almonds

1 cup desiccated coconut

1/2 cup walnuts

3 tbs milk

How To Do It:

Line a loaf pan with baking paper approx. 25cm by 10cm, or whatever you have is fine really. You can also ball it up to make lovely protein balls.  Pulse the dates and almonds together in the food processor until well broken down.  Once they are broken down you can then add the coconut, protein powder and walnuts.   Turn mixture out into a large bowl, and have a good feel.  If the mixture doesn’t come together, start by adding a tablespoon of milk.  Keep adding milk by the spoonful until it will stay together as a ball in your fist. Enjoy 🙂

  1. I love the beauty of homemade bars because I can choose what goes into them! I agree that the ones that the store bought tastes awful – like cardboard in my opinion…. Can’t wait to make my own 🙂


    1. I know right? When it comes to these I never seem to make the same batch twice. You really can just about add anything. Thanks for coming over 😉


  2. Have just given these a go. So easy to make. Think would be great for lunch boxes for the kids (husband) too I am always trying to think of healthy treats to give them .

    Thanks .sarah, love the blog.
