• Chocolate Chip Protein Bars

    October 24, 2012

    I had a little fun in the kitchen baking with protein powder yesterday afternoon. Baking and protein powder? Yep, that’s right. Protein powder is actually a fairly versatile ingredient! I wanted to make something delicious, but also semi-healthy and satisfying to eat before or after a workout. With that said, here’s a tasty recipe for Chocolate Chip Protein Bars. Chocolate chips and vanilla protein powder combine to make a sweet, light, and fluffy treat packed with protein.


    I used vanilla Fitmixer protein powder, but I think pretty much any whey protein or flavor would probably work in this recipe. Mmm… I bet chocolate protein powder would be really yummy!

    • 1 cup vanilla protein powder
    • 1 cup almond milk
    • 1/4 cup melted coconut oil
    • 1 egg
    • 1 tsp baking powder
    • 1 tsp vanilla extract
    • 1/4 cup mini chocolate chips


    1. Preheat oven to 350*F.
    2. Combine all ingredients in a large mixing bowl and blend well.
    3. Pour batter into a greased 8X8 baking dish and spread evenly with a spatula.
    4. Bake for 23-25 minutes until bars are cooked all the way through and the top begins to brown.
    5. Remove from oven and allow to cool before cutting.

    Makes 16 bars

    So easy! I have to try this. Did it have a funky after taste or texture?

    I’m making these this weekend! Any idea on how I might add pumpkin in honor of National Pumpkin Day?

    I made these today with egg beaters and syntha 6 whey protein powder. The oil kept mine from rising. I sprayed the pan with pan with some non stick spray, but i don’t think that was it. Does it require a real egg to rise, or is it my protein powder?
