Alex's Protein Bars (Low Carb/Low Fat Recipe)

-1 Cup Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
-4 Scoops Kaizen Whey Isolate (I used the chocolate flavour- they sell this protein powder at Costco and it's very cost effective and tastes great!)
-3/4 Cup ground Flaxseeds
-3 tbsp Quick Oats
-2 tsp Baking Powder (since there is no flour in this recipe i use more baking powder so the bars don't come out flat)
-1/4 tsp Sea Salt
-1 cup Splenda Sweetener & 5 Enveloppes of Stevia (I used PureVia)
-3/4 cup Shredded Unsweetened Coconut
-6 Egg-Whites
-1/2 Cup Coconut Oil
-1/2 cup Filtered Water
-1/2 cup Skim Milk
-1/2 cup Plain Fat-Free/Vanilla OR Coconut/Pineapple Flavored Source Yogurt (No Sugar Added)
-3/4 cup No-Sugar-Added Cranberries (the frozen kind usually don't have added sugar but the dried ones do!)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. In a Large measuring cup or Medium sized bowl combine all the dry ingredients together (cocoa powder, baking powder, shredded coconut, oats, flaxseeds, splenda, sea salt & protein powder). Add egg-whites and begin to mix with a fork, add the coconut oil and continue to mix well, slowly add liquids (filtered water and skim milk). Make sure you have mixed all ingredients VERY WELL so that there are no lumps in the mixture. Add in yogurt and continue to mix & add in the Cranberries. Pour the mixture in 2 small-med. sized or 1 large pre-greased baking pan(s). I usually "grease" my pans with a very small amount of coconut oil OR olive oil so that my bars don't stick! Bake for 20-30 minutes or until you can easily place a toothpick through the bars and test that they are fully cooked!

Makes about 12 protein bars - Each contains roughly 16 grams of Protein, Under 5 grams of Fat/Carbs, High in Antioxidants, Flavonoids, Dietary Fiber, Medium Chain Triglycerides, Fatty Acids & Tastes Great:)
Makes for a quick and easy snack on your way to the gym, between meals or even as a light meal replacement!!!

Once the bars are ready you can slice them right through the middle and add 2 tbsp of LIGHT Frozen Whipping Cream in between them, top with Cinnamon and Stevia (PureVia tastes best because of its consistency) and make Mini Protein-Bar Ice-Cream Sandwiches :)
 ***NOTE*** 2 tbps of Light Frozen Whipping Cream have less than 25 calories, 1.5 grams of sugar and under 2.5 grams of fat so YOU DON'T HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT ANYTHING!!! =)

  1. Cool post. I'll actually be using this recipe. Only thing is I would replace the whey powder. The jest of it is that it is allergenic for most people. Here\s a site that explains why: Protein Supplement Guide

  2. Nice!! Yeah you don't need to use Whey, it can be replaced by more eggwhites or a different protein supp. i just don't like soy, it messes up hormones in your body but there's Hemp and other forms of protein that can be used in these bars if you are allergic to Whey!! :)

  3. Funny you should say that, I came across a post by Will Brink the other day called: Partial Vindication of Soy. It talked about this issue and said that it is now believed that the hormones in soy are site specific. Also, he mentioned that modern processing methods (for quality protein supplements) eliminate some of the other downsides of soy.

  4. Lol trust me Damian doctors and "experts" that are on payroll will ALWAYS come up with Research upon Research to back up their claims for telling us that 'man-made' supplements are healthy! I think REAL foods are the best way to go. Whey for me is just an alternative... as for soy I don't care how many essays "the experts" publish on their new methods of making it healthier... I won't touch it :)
