Just ten minutes is needed to make these delicious no bake protein bars which taste like an apple pie dessert bar, but so much healthier! These bars are refined sugar-free, gluten free, vegan, dairy free, keto, and paleo.
Line a large baking dish with greased paper and set aside.
In large mixing bowl, combine the flour, protein powder, granulated sweetener, cinnamon, nutmeg and mixed spice and mix well.
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.
Using a spoon, add the milk of choice one spoonful at a time until a thick, firm batter is formed.
Transfer to lined baking dish and press firmly. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
* Depending on the flour/protein powder combination, you may need more or less. I used up to 3/4 cup with the paleo version.If your batter is too thin (brands VS homemade applesauce vary, add a dash more coconut flour until firmer).Homemade no bake apple pie protein bars should be stored in the fridge and will keep fresh for up to 2 weeks. These protein bars are freezer friendly and keep well for up to 6 months.
