Looking for a quick and easy pre or post workout snack? These little protein bars are sure you keep you fuelled up. Made using just a handful of ingredients, naturally sweetened by the banana (the riper the better!), they aren’t super sweet but they do have a lovely moist texture. The ingredients makes around 6 servings – or as many as you like- so you could easily double the mix if you fancy.
50g vanilla protein powder
1 tsp baking powder
12g chia seeds
1 large ripe banana
10g cacao powder
40g dark chocolate, chopped into chunks
- Preheat the oven to 180C and line, or grease, a small baking tray (I used a 10×8″ oven proof dish).
- Using a food processor, firstly blitz the oats unlike it becomes a flour-like consistency. Add all remaining ingredients (except the chocolate chunks) and blitz until everything is throughly combined. Stir through the chocolate chunks, keeping a few to sprinkle on top.
- Transfer mixture to an oven proof dish and top with remaining chocolate chunks.
- Bake In oven for approx 25 mins. Remove and allow to complete cool- the mix may still seem a little runny at few but this will set as it cools. Slice in the squares or bars, and enjoy!
