Hard to find a good quality protein bar that is free from the artificial junk that messes with our health! Most protein bars are packed with soy, sugar alcohols, artificial sweeteners, additives and preservatives. Scary! So make your own! 🙂

I always recommend  snacks that are protein rich to keep blood sugar levels stable- the key to good health and weight management. So learn to make your own healthy and clean version below…

Dry ingredients:

Makes- 10/15 bar slices

  • 1/2 cup lsa mix (linseed, almond, sunflower meal)/ Almond meal/Linseed meal
  • 1/2 cup rolled oats ( or quinoa flakes)
  • 1/4 cup shredded unsweetened coconut
  • 1/4 cup psyllium husk
  • 1/4 cup mixed seeds
  • 3 tbsp chia seeds
  • 1/2 cup natural protein powder- whey/rice/pea ( optional)
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts/almonds
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt

Wet ingredients:

  • 2 tbsp almond butter/peanut butter
  • 1 mashed banana
  • 1/4 cup stevia/maple syrup/rice malt syrup
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tbsp milk

Method:

Add  the wet to the dry!

Line an 8-inch square pan with baking paper that is greased (sprayed with olive oil).

Scoop batter onto pan. Press down and spread batter evenly.

Bake in the oven 180 degrees for 20-25 mins.

Allow to cool. Slice into bars!

Refrigerate for up to a week.

Easy. Nutritious. Delicious.

  • These sound seedy and delicious (words that only go together for health foodies and birds, haha)! Protein bars are usually such junk. I just want to cringe whenever I see people eating them thinking they’re healthy!

    • They so good- did you make them?? 🙂

  • Renee Bauer

    These bars are delish…have got all my healthy foodie friends on to them to so thanks heaps for the recipe!

  • Staci

    I am just about to try to make these- but wondering if there is an alternative to banana? I am unfortunately allergic to both banana and oats which is very frustrating when trying to eat well!!

  • Sue

    Wondering if there’s a substitute for the banana as I follow “Eat Right for your Type” and bananas are out.

  • Sue

    Oops forgot to also ask can almond/peanut butter be substituted with tahini?

  • Liz A
