Apple No Bake Protein Bar Recipe (Dairy & Sugar Free)

Dig these healthy No-Bake Apple Pie Protein Bars that taste like a dessert you can eat daily….multiple times. Not only do they only take 10 minutes to whip up, they are a one bowl wonder which is a no-mess, no fuss kind of snack. They have a soft, chewy and doughy texture. Not only do each bar pack at a hefty protein boost, they are also naturally gluten-free, vegan, refined sugar-free! Remember to always use organic ingredients when possible.

1. 2 cups gluten-free oat flour (For the paleo option, use 1 cup coconut flour)
2. ½ cup coconut flour, sifted (Can sub for almond or more oat flour)
3. ½ cup vanilla vegan or paleo friendly protein powder
4. 2 T granulated sweetener of choice (optional)*
5. 1 T cinnamon
6. 1 tsp mixed spice
7. 1 tsp nutmeg
8. 1/4 cup almond butter (can sub for any nut butter)
9. ½ cup liquid sweetner (agave syrup or brown rice syrup or maple syrup in the paleo version)
10. 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
11. 1 T + dairy free milk of choice**

1. Line a large baking dish with greased paper and set aside.
2. In large mixing bowl, combine the flour, protein powder, granulated sweetener, cinnamon, nutmeg and mixed spice and mix well.
3. In a microwave-safe bowl, combine the nut butter and liquid sweetener and heat until melted. Pour the wet mixture into the dry and mix well. Add the unsweetened applesauce and mix until combined, the batter should be crumbly.
4. Using a spoon, add the dairy free milk of choice one spoonful at a time until a thick, firm batter is formed.
5. Transfer to lined baking dish and press firmly. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.

1. *You can omitted the sweetener if vegan protein powder is sweetened
2. ** Depending on the flour/protein powder combination, you may need more or less. I used up to 3/4 cup with the paleo version.
3. If your batter is too thin (brands VS homemade applesauce vary, add a dash more coconut flour until firmer).
