I love protein bars because they’re so convenient.
Just stuff them in your gym bag and you’re good to go.
But I don’t always love what’s in commercial protein bars. That’s why I started making my own.
Making your own, such as these White Chocolate Cranberry No-Bake Protein Bars, is an excellent way to control your ingredients and know exactly what’s in your food.
You can customize your protein bars as you see fit. Make them vegan, paleo, or create a new flavor combination you’ve been craving. Plus, making your own protein bars is much, much more cost-effective than buying them.
This no-bake version is a snap to make.
The dry ingredients of this bar include oats (which are ground into a flour), protein powder, puffed brown rice, and chia seeds. Wild honey, raw agave, raw almond butter, and coconut oil are heated and melted together. This makes combining and forming the protein bars a pinch.
You can use your favorite protein powder here, but I recommend an unsweetened/unflavored version. Honey, agave, and vanilla add enough sweetness to this bar (and help the bar to stick together).
The White Chocolate Cranberry No-Bake Protein Bars are studded with tart dried cranberries and get a chocolate drizzle. The puffed brown rice adds a lovely, crispy crunch.
I need to constantly switch up my workout routine because I get bored easily. A typical week for me will vary between yoga, cycling, a dance abs workout, barre/ballet, and kickboxing. I like to switch up my protein bar flavors just as much….
