Because getting adequate protein to support your day-to-day activities can be challenging, whey protein isolate can be a quick and easy solution when time or access to whole foods is limited. While a protein shake is the most common way to consume whey protein, at Thorne we always look for ways to expand customer options for adding variety to their nutrition routines.
Pre-packaged protein bars often contain heaps of ingredients and preservatives we are probably better off avoiding.
But you can make a homemade protein bar that is chock-full of ingredients you want and none that you don’t. I set off to create a no-bake, gluten-free protein bar that meets our ingredient standards, but also tastes good – and the outcome was incredibly delicious.
This recipe tested well with children and adults, and we are excited to find out what variations you come up with since the flavor combinations of this recipe are endless.
Gluten Free, No-Bake Chocolate Protein Bars
This classic coconut and cherry combo is delicious and adds great texture – but you could use anything you like – and don’t forget to try our Whey Protein Isolate (vanilla flavored) as the base to open up a host of new flavor combinations. We’ve also made these bars with dried hemp seeds, cranberries, and mini dark chocolate chips, which were a hit. Be brave and mix and match your add-ins to create new tasty versions.
Make sure all ingredients are at room temperature
Yield: 12-16 bars
We recommend keeping them in the fridge, or they get pretty soft. Keep the bars in the fridge in an airtight container – they usually last 7-10 days.
