Un-bee-lievable Protein Bars

March 14th, 2019 | no comments

Like peanut butter fudge with a kick!

Made with either plant-based or bone broth-based vanilla protein powder, peanut butter, bee pollen and a handful of other simple ingredients, these bars store well in the freezer and can get quite soft if left out too long (i.e. you may need to eat it with a fork!). 

Bee pollen is one of nature’s most nourishing foods, housing nearly all nutrients required by humans to thrive. It’s rich in protein, folate, B-vitamins, minerals, and live enzymes.

You can buy bee pollen in either granule or ground form, but whatever you do, make sure it is 100% raw and free from pesticides and chemicals. Both Beekeeper’s Naturals (granules) and Bareorganics (ground) are trusted and reputable options. For this recipe I would recommend using ground bee pollen.

Instructions
  1. Mix all ingredients together in a bowl until well combined. It should be thick and tough to mix. If too runny, add a little more protein powder or almond flour. If too thick (can't mix at all), add a splash more milk.
  2. Line a loaf pan with plastic wrap. Using clean hands, press mixture into a large rectangle shape. Freeze for one hour then cut into 8 bars. Wrap each bar individually in plastic wrap and store in a freezer bag in the freezer. Bars soften at room temperature. Enjoy!
