Protein bars are a delicious and convenient way to enjoy a high protein snack. There is no need to buy protein bars when it's far cheaper and more nutritious to make your own. These wholesome protein bars, adapted from desserts with benefits, are made with quality hemp and rice protein, antioxidant-rich green tea powder with nutritious oat and healthy fats.

  1. Line a 20x12-cm plastic box with a large sheet of plastic wrap. Whisk together the almond butter, soya milk, and stevia extract until combined in a mixing bowl.
  2. In another bowl, mix together the hemp protein powder, rice protein powder, oat flour and matcha powder. Slowly add this dry mixture to the almond butter mixture. Mix until the mixture is even, scraping down the sides of the bowl if necessary. It should have a texture like cookie dough.
  3. Spoon the mixture into the prepared box and flatten the surface with a rubber spatula or pastry roller. Cover the box with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight.
  4. The next day, slice the protein bars and drizzle them liberally with melted white chocolate. Store the rest in a plastic box with a lid in the fridge.

I love these no bake recipes especially now that summer is on its way and the baking in the oven sometimes is really hard here!

Your protein bars look wonderful. I agree why buy protein bars when you make them yourself and that way you know what you are eating.

Abbe@This is How I Cook 2/4/14 05:24

My first thought was that these are really green. My second though was that these look pretty good. Any idea how many grams of protein in a bar?

[Reply]
Angie Schneider 2/4/14 05:32

@Abbe@This is How I Cook Sorry, I didn't count, but it all depends on how you cut them.

I saw these on Pinterest the other day and couldn't stop staring! I'm not sure I've ever come across a matcha based bar before (many desserts and certainly beverages) but not a protein bar, how inventive and you sure don't need a lot of matcha to get a great color either -- they look fabulous!

[Reply]

Oh YUM!!! I love everything about these bars!!! Just need to find some hemp protein powder. Have never seen that at the co-op. Is there a good substitute?

[Reply]
Roz Corieri Paige 8/4/14 23:51

Almond butter, protein powder, white chocolate -- these need to be in my desk drawer in my office where I keep a stash of stale, store-bough protein bars to get through the day! Hey, Angie, I want to thank you for being such a great foodie friend and to let you know that the other day when you stopped by, the Giveaway Rafflecopter was not operating. If you are interested, you can still enter multiple times for the cookbook and food. Sorry about any inconvenience. SUPER GREAT BARS!
Hugs,
Roz

These look really attractive. I love the way you've tied them up with raffia. Also love matcha, it works so well in baking. Never tried protein powders - always a bit worried about what the put in them.
