It is borderline offensive to refer to these babies simply as a “vegan protein bar recipe”. This, ladies and gentlemen, is nothing short of a miracle bar! Serving 12g of Protein, 3g of Fiber, and 240 calories per serving, don’t be afraid to munch on a couple before your next workout!

I have found myself having enough spare time recently to be extremely productive. It’s fantastic! I have tested tons of recipes, taken loads of pictures, and spent copious amounts of time with Cameron and the pups! (Be sure to follow me on Instagram to keep up on the behind-the-scenes action!)

Amongst the gym, brunch-spots, and plant nurseries, we find ourselves a bit hangry at moments. Not good (especially with the heat reaching 100° already 🙁 ) I had been working on a vegan protein bar recipe for a while now, this was the time to perfect it!

Clean Ingredients for a Simple Homemade Vegan Protein Bar

Having worked in a health-food store for years, it was a common sight to see hoards of customers parked in the nutrition-bar aisle for hours. The same blank expression on their faces, trying to decipher the mile-long list of ingredients. High Fructose Corn Syrup, Milk Fat, Artificial Sweeteners, Laxatives (YES, I said laxatives!!), the list goes on and on! The nutrition industry is a dirty one, you have to be aware of what you’re consuming.

The best way to control what goes into your body is to make your own homemade vegan protein bars. Despite the cheap, questionably-edible ingredients, big name brands overcharge by incredible amounts. With such cheap, bulk ingredients available to consumers, you can’t afford to not make your own! The total cost of this entire recipe comes to around $12.59. This means each serving costs only $1.39.

With that $1.39, you’re getting yourself nature’s powerhouse of a multivitamin, a hefty dose of Omega-3, and around 12 grams of protein. This, all while keeping the sugar content below 7 grams! There’s no point in eating candy disguised as a protein bar. The lowest sugar I’ve seen in store-bought was 16g, and that was with the help of stevia!

I don’t like my nutritional bars to be overly sweet, but the recipe is very adaptive to personal taste! If they aren’t quite sweet enough, simply add 1 Tablespoon of maple syrup, agave, or brown rice syrup.
