Recipe of the Week: Lemon Blueberry Protein Bar

Recipe of the Week: Lemon Blueberry Protein Bar

Here’s a lovely departure from chocolate-themed protein bars, with a delightful combination of lemon and blueberry. If lemon isn’t your thing then leave out the lemon zest and embrace the vanilla-blueberry vibe. 

Instead of buying all those sugar-packed protein bars from the store, try making your own! This recipe might be a bit time consuming, but the extra time will be worth it.

Servings: 20

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup unsweetened coconut milk
  • 1 cup almond butter
  • ½ cup dried blueberries
  • 2 cups uncooked, rolled oats
  • 1 Tablespoon lemon zest
  • 2 cups vanilla protein powder
  • 3 Tablespoon coconut oil, melted
  • 1 Tablespoon Swerve confectioners style erythritol

***the sugar substitute can be omitted from the recipe if you don't want to add an icing drizzle to the top of your protein bars!

Instructions:

  • Line the bottom and sides of an 9 × 9-inch baking pan with parchment paper, so that the parchment paper hangs over the sides. (These will be your handles to easily pull the protein bars from the pan once they’re done.) Lightly rub the parchment paper with coconut oil.
  • Combine the coconut milk and almond butter in a pot over low heat. Stir often, until fully combined and smooth, then remove from heat and allow to cool.
  • Blend the dried blueberries in a food processor until creamy. Add the almond butter mixture, oats, and protein powder and pulse until fully incorporated. Press the dough into the prepared dish and place in the freezer for 10 minutes. Cut into 20 bars.
  • Whisk the coconut oil and Swerve together in a small bowl. Drizzle over the protein bars. Chill until the glaze sets, about 5 minutes. Store in the fridge.
