ModernTREATS | Chocolate Chip Protein Bars

September 03, 2015


Instead of purchasing a 4 dollar bar that’s been sitting on the shelf for months, make one for a fraction of the price that’s actual food. Taste real chocolate with the convenience you love with a protein bar. You may want to hide these from your family, they’ll go fast.




2 Full Scoops of USPlabs ModernPROTEIN
2 Tablespoons of Coconut Flour
3 Tablespoons of Rolled / Old Fashioned Oats
1 Teaspoon Xylitol (Natural Sweetener)
1 Teaspoon Cinnamon
1 Tablespoon Chopped Walnuts
1 Tablespoon Organic Chocolate Chips


ModernPROTEIN bars




In a large bowl, combine the ModernPROTEIN and the coconut flour. Once mixed, add the oats, xylitol, and cinnamon. Mix well. Once mixed, add 3-4 teaspoons of water and start to form a dough-like ball. Feel free to add small amounts of water to maintain the dough-like feel. Once you’re formed a dough-like consistency, add walnuts and chocolate chips. Fold and kneed these ingredients into the dough. Form a large ball with the dough. Cut the dough into two pieces and shape each half into a bar shape. Consume or store in aluminum foil in the refrigerator. Add optional pumpkin pie icing to your bar and refrigerate for 45 minutes.
