German Chocolate Protein Bars

German Chocolate Protein Bars from The Sweet Life

Another experiment in protein bar making.  These are no-bake and can be made in a food processor…you really have no excuse not to make your own anymore.

Fudge Brownie Chocolate Protein Bars

Fudge Brownie Chocolate Protein Bars, from Chocolate-Covered Katie

I make my own protein bars.  I have a hard time finding any that are free of wheat, whey, high-glycemic sweeteners, and artificial sweeteners (all things I try to avoid for various reasons), so I just make my own with my favorite vegan protein powder, and have never been disappointed.  These bars get an extra protein punch from a black bean base (don’t cringe–remember the DELICIOUS black bean brownies?), and are fudgy, rich, and a great pick-me-up.
