Experimenting in the kitchen is often times rewarded – this recipe is one of those times. Whether you need some quick fuel before a workout, or just need a quick snack to curb sweet cravings, these foolproof chocolate energy bars are just what you need!
And, made with BBQ Honey STRONG & KIND bars instead of dry nuts so there’s a flavor overload!
Ingredients for 6-10 bars:
- 3 STRONG & KIND bars (your choice of flavor, but I used Honey Smoked BBQ)
- 1.5 scoop quality protein powder (I used Labrada ISO Lean Pro vanilla)
- you can use 2 scoops if you would like to increase protein content, but you may need to add 1-3 tbsp almond milk as well)
- 1/3 cup cocoa powder
- 1/3 cup cacao nibs (optional)
- 1.25 cup dates
- 1 tbsp coconut oil
Approximate macros for 1 of 10 bars (without cacao nibs):
