Fudgy Chocolate Protein Bars

Fudgy Protein Bars

If you have food allergies and are watching what you eat, it can be hard to find portable protein sources. Most protein bars have milk or soy in them, which are problematic for me, and many commercial protein bars are full of mystery ingredients that make them little better than a candy bar. I love Larabars and Kind bars, but I often want more protein and less fat then they provide.

Making your own protein bars allows you to control the ingredients (no mystery there!), the flavors, and the calories. These Fudgy Chocolate Protein Bars are allergy-friendly, gluten free, vegan and mostly raw! This one is low in fat and sugar, and high in fiber and protein, making it perfect. If you like the “100 calorie” snack concept, you can easily make these 100 calories by dividing the recipe into 6 smaller bars.

Use good judgement here: the result should be a thick dough that you can shape, so start with less water/rice milk and add more as needed. Adjust the taste, too, by using more or less stevia and vanilla.
