Reader InteractionsWith the coconut oil it coats really easily and forms a thin chocolate layer. They were SO tasty cold. And the time is now. To top it all, the dietary food that you prepare at home lacks taste, yet you strive to have it in the aim of achieving effective weight loss. Then allow to cool completely to room temperature, stirring occasionally.
A chocolate brownie Quest bar would be delicious vegan-ified; great suggestion! I tried them too and had an incredibly hard time getting them to thicken enough to even be a bar!
Very tasty flavor but the bar part not so much: It was all too goey and non mold able. I won't be adding as much almond milk next time. I think the key is Vitafiber. That's what quest bars use in order to get them hard like that. I used vanilla SunWarrior brand protein in this, but I think chocolate would also be wonderful. I'm gonna have to try this!
I spend way too much money on Quest bars and I've always wanted to try to make them from scratch but wasn't sure about ratios. Did you find they stay well if you bring them with you for an afternoon or should they stay in the fridge until you're going to nom??
Hi Alexis, I bring them with me to school all the time, so they should definitely be fine at room temperature! Just don't leave them in the sun for too long I was wondering how you came up with your nutritional information.
I just made these today and got I used the chocolate sun warrior, only difference is one more gram of protein This is how I did it: Divided by 4 that gives you I would really like to achieve your 80 calories - please advise! Great recipe- but I followed it to a T and it is wayyy too runny! How can I thicken it?
Figured i'd ask - I'm sure others might have this question. I made these tonight according to the directions but the mix was too sticky. I needed to add more proteing powder to firm the mix up. I think some protein powders are more absorent than others. Might be an idea to recommend adding the liquid gradually in the recipe. Great recipe though, they are delicious! I used Plant Fusion protein but can't wait to try them with Sun Warrior. Best homemade protein bars I've ever had!
Will be fun to add things like chia, raisins, nuts, chocolate protein vs vanilla, etc Thank you so much! I can't wait to make these. I'm truly addicted to Vanilla Quest. My little boy loves them, too, so I cut them up in little pieces so that neither of us over-consumes! This is exactly what I have been looking for.
I am transitioning into veganism and the one last thing that I needed to find to replace a dairy product was a good protein bar that wasn't packed with so many calories. I am currently eating Quest Bars, but everything else I eat is completely plant based and vegan.
These bars are the last piece to the puzzle for me. Thank you for a wonderful recipe!!! I used almond butter and almond extract.
I don't know what I did wrong, I thought I followed the recipe but I ended up with a taffy like mess that wouldn't come off anything. It tasted fine but it was like gum and I tried adding Pb2 to get some of the liquid absorbed but it just stayed the same consistency. Could it be my protein powder? I was using Cellucor. I tried making these?
They taste good but I ended up with a food processor full of taffy. I did double the recipe, which should have been easy, so either your proportions are off or I mis-measured. It tastes good for what a mess. And I will not be able to make into bars. Thinking I could instead use more cocoa powder and roll into truffle balls. Mines like taffy too, or maybe melty tootsie roll Tried adding a little more dry ingredients, not happening.
Seriously hard to clean out of the bowl and off spoon due to stickiness. Epic fail in my kitchen. I just finished making these and they are a bit runny I hope these firm up in the fridge. Thanks for trying out the recipe, Nicole! We hope they turn out well.
I wouldn't keep these out of the fridge for long I was out of peanut butter when I made these, so I used tahini instead, and they turned out really well; in fact, they tasted a bit like sesame halvah! I used vanilla Sunwarrior and a little bit of ground-up dark chocolate I had left from another protein bar recipe. I was thrilled with the result and will definitely be making them again! Do you use the classic vanilla protein, classic plus vanilla protein or the warrior blend vanilla protein for the bars?
I use the classic vanilla protein. What flavor protein powder do you use? Buying all of the ingredients now to try!!! In this recipe, I used the vanilla flavored classic protein powder from Sun Warrior. This was way better than I thought it was going to be, awesome job! I added a few shaved almonds and raw sunflower seeds too give it a little kick and it turned out really well. I also used this as a base for granola bars. For the granola bars I just coated one side of it with granola and the other with the shaved nuts.
Adds a little calories and carbs but since this recipe is so low in both you can get away with a little! Hi Newbie, I'm so glad it worked out! The sunflower seeds and almonds were a great addition: I want to try these! I just made these And instead of bars I made balls. My 2yr old helped me roll them. Hope you come up with more. I'm now I new follower! Other flavors I'd like to try is anything chocolate. Also like coconut and other types of nuts.
Hi Melissa, I'm so glad you enjoyed the recipe! Smart addition, you can never go wrong with dark chocolate: Hi Franci, I hope you enjoy the recipe! I would love to hear your feedback: I am on Day 3 of my health journey.
I fell off the wagon about 2 months ago and have had a very hard time getting back in to the swing of things. I typed low calorie protein bar recipe in to Google and here you are!!! This could very well be my saving grace because the bars you buy in the stores are so expensive and let's face it Thank you so much!!! I look forward to trying these and posting my review. Hi Anj, I'm so glad you've found us!
I hope you enjoy the recipe: When I calculated the proteins, carbs and fats for each bar. I got 15g protein 10g fat 8g carbs per bar. I used the same recipe quantities. How did you get 3. My protein was the same 15g. It is the easiest and best protein bar that I have ever made, the texture is close to commercial brands.

I would really like to make these, but I have an allergy to coconut. Can I use more of the almond or tapioca flour in place of the coconut in this recipe? I finally got around to making them and yes they are that good. And hallelujah mine looked just like the picture! I recently made these- amazing btw!
Just trying to understand the size! For the crust it was fine, but not the filling. I think the ghee is important to make it firm up. Also, the amount of oil in the nutbutter seems to be a factor. Something else I learned was that without access to a food processor, I made the crust by hand without issues. Made these for my husband yesterday with almond butter! Your blog and podcast has helped get me through a very rough postprtum period…. I turn on your podcast and the lightheartedness of it always cheers me up, so thank you for sharing your stories and humor.
Anyways, thanks again, keep doing good things: But they came out perfect! Thanks so much for the recipe, you rock! This recipe was amazing!!! Question-I have a kiddo with a ton of allergies, and she could actually eat these! She asked that I use the cookie layer to make her a cookie cake for her birthday. I was thinking I would add chocolate chips and 1. Do you think that would work, or do you have a better recipe for a cookie cake?
