Homemade Protein Bar Option 1

Serves : 1


  • 1.25 cups slivered almonds, lightly toasted
  • 1 cup pecans, lightly toasted
  • 1/3 cup ground flax meal
  • ¾ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 7 large Medjool dates, pits removed
  • 1/3 cup dried unsweetened cherries or blueberries
  • 1/3 cup dried apricots
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla
  • ½ tablespoon honey
  • 2 scoops (about 60 grams) of unsweetened protein powder
  • 4-5 Tbs. water


In a food processor, coarsely grind the almonds and pecans.  Set aside in a large bowl.  Add the flax seed and protein powder to the nut blend.

Next, put the dates, blueberries, and apricots into the food processor and pulse only a few times to chop the fruit (should still be small pieces).  Add the water, vanilla, and honey and pulse a few more times to combine.

Add your fruit mixture to the nut mixture, and hand mix to combine all the ingredients well. 

Simply press your mixture into a glass baking dish and refrigerate for 60 minutes before cutting into bars. Try not to eat them all at once 😉
