Ingredients

  • 1 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1/2 cup tahini or you can use almond, sunflower or peanut butter instead
  • 2 tbsp water
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 1 tbsp vanilla
  • 2 cups whey protein powder
  • 1 1/2 cups oat flour or 1.5 cups rolled oats blended in a blender/food processor
  • 1 tbsp instant coffee
  • 2 tsp pumpkin pie spice can blend 1 tbsp cinnamon, 1 tsp nutmeg and 1 tsp ginger together to make pumpkin spice
  • 1/4 cup chocolate chips
  • 1 tsp water

Instructions

  • Mix wet ingredients (pumpkin puree, tahini, honey, water and vanilla) together in a large bowl, then microwave for 1 minute, stirring well. Mix remaining dry ingredients (protein powder, oat flour, instant coffee, pumpkin spice) together in another large bowl.
  • Fold wet ingredients into dry ingredients, stirring well to combine and using your hands near the end to completely mix everything together.
  • Squish all ingredients down into a greased 8x8 dish, pressing down firmly and smoothing the top as much as possible. Freeze for 20-30 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, mix chocolate chips with water and heat for 1 minute in the microwave.
  • Remove protein bars from the freezer and cut using a sharp knife, dividing into 10 pieces. Drizzle chocolate overtop, then serve and enjoy! I like to keep extras in the freezer - they'll keep up to 3 months in there!
