Homemade High Protein-Hi Fiber Energy Bars

I have been really busy at home writing my book but I have taken some time to make my very own homemade protein bars. As most of you know protein bars can be extremely expensive, so for the past 3 years I have been making my own bars. I have used many different ways to make them but this is particular one is my favorite. I hope you like them, they are supper moist, high in fiber and high protein...YUMMY!

Here is my recipe

1 c. wheat flour
1/2 c. garbanzo flour
1/2 c. tapioca flour
1 c. chopped gala apples without the skin 
(I used dehydrated apples from my food storage)
1/4 c. sunflower seeds
1/2 c. ground flaxseed
2 tablespoons of Benefiber
(fiber supplement)

1 cups. packed brown sugar
1/2 c. white sugar
1/2 c. vegan protein powder
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. sea salt
1/2 tsp. allspice
1/2 tsp. ground cloves
1/2 c. non dairy butter (melted)
1/2 to 1 c. non dairy milk (cold)

In a large bowl mix all the dry ingredients together, then pour in the melted butter, stir it well and slowly add the milk until it make a consistency just a bit thicker than cake batter.  Pour all the contents into a 9x13 baking pan already sprayed with a non stick spray.

Bake for 35 to 40 minutes at 370 degrees. Remove from oven and let it cool before cutting into bars.

I cut my bars and then I wrapped them individually in saran wrap and then I placed them in freezer bags to be stored in the freezer. I have one every morning for breakfast with my protein smoothie and nuts...A DELICIOUS way to start the day!

From my Caribbean Vegan Kitchen to yours...SALUD!


  1. These would be very handy for breakfast. I haven't been making any breakfast bars for a while. I sometimes use actual beans (chickpeas or black beans), mashed. They are so filling, keep me filled way past lunch time! Thanks for sharing your recipe, Millie! I hope you're doing well. :)

  2. These sound great! I have been thinking, lately, that some homemade protein bars would be a good thing to have around. I'll have to try out this recipe!

  3. These sound really good. I'll have to give them a try after I move. Thanks. Good luck with the book writing.

  4. These sound filling! What book are you writing?

  5. Blessedmama, I am writing a book about my youngest son Sammy who died of cancer at the tender age of 15.
