I’m happy to share with you a recipe for Vegan Protein Bars that are (almost) zero waste!

The whole mixture is about 724 calories, and it equals 6 bars. A bar is just 120 calories, with 12g protein. 

For this recipe, I used Vivolife protein powder, which comes in compostable pouches.

In the end, I’ll share a bit more about Vivolife, just because I love their products.

  1. First, mix the peanut flour and the milk.

  • * I tried the recipe with sesame flour, and it worked! I haven't tried it with almond/oat flour, but it may work.
  • ** You can use any other plant milk.
  • *** This recipe will work fine with any nut butter. The first time I did the recipe, I used tahini.
  • **** For the sticky sweetener, you can use agave, maple syrup, date syrup, etc. I tried it with agave and carob syrup, and it was great.
  • Store in the freezer. Before eating, let it outside from the freezer for 10 minutes or so. 🙂
