Pumpkin Spice Latte Protein Bars
These Pumpkin Spice Latte Protein Bars are a delicious, healthy snack that's perfect for fall and a skinny, filling version of your favourite Starbucks drink!
Servings: 10 bars
- 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
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!
