Individually wrap these scrumptious vegan protein bars for a quick & healthy on-the-go snack for the entire family this summer!
Vegan Protein Bars
1 cup organic peanut butter (or Sunflower Seed Butter, for those with peanut allergies)
2/3 cup agave nectar
4 scoops Arbonne’s chocolate protein powder (or one cup of another high-quality brand)
1 1/2 cups rolled oats
1/4 cup ground flax seeds
(10 minutes, plus cooling time)
In a small saucepan, whisk peanut butter and agave nectar over medium-low heat for 3 – 4 minutes, until the mixture is well combined and just beginning to bubble.
In a mixing bowl, stir together chocolate protein powder, rolled oats, and ground flax seed.
Pour peanut butter and agave mixture into dry ingredients. Stir just until all of the dry ingredients have been moistened. The mixture will be crumbly, this is okay as long as everything is moistened.
Press mixture into an ungreased 8 x 8 inch glass baking dish. Once bars are completely cool, cut into 20 rectangles. Serve and enjoy!
Makes 20 Bars.
