Chocolate Orange Protein Bars

When most people think of a protein bar they think of a horrible, dense, expensive rectangle of yuck that is packed with additives and leaves a horrible aftertaste.

But don't worry, we've made a recipe for homemade protein bars that use only a few ingredients, are packed with protein and taste delicious. Oh and they don't require any cooking either!

This easy recipe for chocolate orange protein bars is very versatile. If you're not a fan of chocolate orange, you can swap the protein for a different flavour and instead of marmalade you could use some yummy strawberry jam or more honey instead.

The protein bars are very easy to make and are a great high protein snack idea for combating mid-morning hunger. They would also be a great pre or post-workout bite too!

Yields6 Servings
Prep Time40 minsCook Time10 minsTotal Time50 mins
 100 g oat flour (raw oats blitzed in a blender)
 50 g desiccated coconut
 Splash of milk
 100 g whey protein
 50 g marmalade
 50 g dark chocolate
Method
1

Combine the oat flour, whey protein, coconut and marmalade in a bowl.

2

Add a tiny bit of milk and mix everything through with your hands, add a little bit more milk and continue to mix everything until the consistency resembles a bread dough. You don't want to add to much liquid or you won't be able to shape the bars.

3

Once you have the desired thickness, shape the mixture into several bars and place them on a plate that has been covered with grease-proof paper.

4

Here's a tip for you, when you're trying to shape the bars, wet your hands with water first as this stops the mixture sticking to your hands.

5

Once you've shaped your bars, heat up the dark chocolate in a bain-marie then coat the protein bars with the melted chocolate. Pop them into the freezer for 30 minutes to firm up. (What is a bain-marie? This is when you place the chocolate in a bowl in a large, shallow pan of warm water, which surrounds the chocolate with a gentle heat so it melts.)
