Line an 8 x 8-inch pan or 8 x 10-inch pan with parchment paper and set aside.
In a microwave-safe bowl or stovetop, combine your nut butter with syrup and mix until combined. Add your dry ingredients and mix very well, ensuring it is all fully incorporated.
Transfer the mixture to the lined pan and press firmly in place. Refrigerate until firm. Once firm, use a sharp, slightly wet knife, and cut into 20 bars.
Melt your chocolate chips and moving quickly, use two forks to dip each bar in the melted chocolate, ensuring each one is evenly coated. Repeat until all bars are covered in chocolate and refrigerate until firm.
* pure maple syrup, agave and honey (not strictly vegan) are all fantastic 100% refined sugar free syrups. Brown rice syrup works well too, especially due to its stickier texture. ** If you don't follow a strict keto diet, any refined sugar free sticky sweetener (maple syrup, agave etc) work. Homemade Low Carb Crunch Protein Bars (Keto, Vegan, Paleo) can keep at room temperature, in a sealed container, for up to 2 weeks.
