Ingredients
  • 1 scoop vanilla protein powder (40 g; a heaping ½ cup)
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 cup rolled oats (96 g)
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil (26 g)
  • ½ cup natural almond butter (118 g)
  • ¼ cup honey (74 g)
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon water *if needed
  • sea salt for sprinkling
Instructions
  1. Combine the protein powder, cinnamon and rolled oats in a 7 cup food processor fitted with a steel blade. Blend until the oats are powdery and blended.
  2. In a microwave safe bowl, melt the coconut oil. Stir in the almond butter, honey and vanilla extract until smooth.
  3. Add the liquids into the food processor in two batches, processing in between. Process on high for 1-2 minutes until mixture is completely blended and mixed together. You may need to stop and press the mixture down a few times with a spatula.
  4. If mixture feels dry, add 1 tablespoon of water and process again.
  5. Line an 8 x 8 inch baking dish with parchment paper. Scoop the protein bar mixture into the pan and press firmly with a spatula.
  6. Sprinkle with flaky sea salt.
  7. Freeze for a minimum of 30 minutes before slicing into bars.
  8. Keep bars in the fridge as they become soft at room temperature.
