These healthy no bake chocolate fudge protein bars are the perfect protein-packed snack which tastes like dessert! Made with no flour, sugar, oil or butter, these protein bars are naturally gluten free, vegan, paleo and dairy free!
Line a large baking tray or 8 x 8 baking dish with baking paper and set aside.
In a large mixing bowl, combine your flours, protein powder, cocoa powder, salt and granulated sweetener and set aside.
In a microwave safe bowl or stovetop, melt your nut butter of choice with the maple syrup. Mix very well until fully incorporated.
Using a tablespoon, add milk of choice until a VERY thick batter is formed. Transfer batter to lined baking tray and press firmly in place and place inside the fridge. While chilling, start by making your frosting- mix the first 4 ingredients then using a tablespoon, add milk until a thick and spreadable frosting is formed. Top the bars with frosting and allow to chill for 30 minutes, or until firm.
Cut into bars and enjoy!
* For a paleo option, swap for 1 cup of coconut flour TOTAL (omit the extra 1/4 cup in second line) ** I used a monk fruit sweetener, but if your protein powder is sweet enough, keep as it is. *** To keep this completely sugar free, omit and increase milk of choice. Please note that these bars will be more firmer. **** Depending on the flour blend, you may need more. Adjust accordingly. No bake protein bars should be kept in the fridge, but are freezer friendly.
