Extra chewy no bake red velvet protein bars which take ten minutes to prep and are healthy for you! Inspired by the classic red velvet cake, this no bake protein-packed recipe is also naturally gluten free, vegan, dairy free, sugar free and comes with a tested paleo option!
Line a large baking dish with greased paper and set aside.
In large mixing bowl, combine the flour, protein powder if using it, granulated sweetener, cocoa powder, beetroot powder and mix well.
In a microwave safe bowl or stovetop, combine the almond butter and liquid sweetener and heat until melted. Pour the wet mixture into the dry and mix well- It should be crumbly.
Using a tablespoon, add the dairy free milk of choice one spoonful at a time until a thick, firm batter is formed.
Transfer to the lined pan and top with chocolate chips, if using them. Refrigerate until firm.
* Depending on the flour/protein powder combination, you may need more or less. I used up to 3/4 cup sometimes!These are soft at room temperature but delicious eaten from the fridge or thawed from the freezer!
