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!

  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!
