Chocolate Protein Bars “Cake Like”

So I took this recipe off of bodybuilding.com, however I changed one ingredient in it. But this is seriously the most delicious protein bar I have ever tried/made. It honestly takes like chocolate cake. So I am thinking that for birthdays I will make this recipe as a cake and put some ‘healthier’ icing on top to make it more cake like.

Give this recipe a try and let us know how you like it.

chocolate protein bar

CHOCOLATE PROTEIN BARS:

1 cup of oat flour 
4 eggs whites 
2 scoops of Low Carb Chocolate Whey Protein Powder (or you can use Vanilla flavoured)
1/2 cup splenda (or any of your favorite sweetener alternatives)
1/2 tsp baking soda 
1/4 tsp salt 
1 cup unsweetened apple sauce (really helps to bring out the chocolate flavour) 
3 tbsp Baking Cocoa (unsweetened) 
1/2 cup water 

DIRECTIONS:

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2. In a large bowl mix the dry ingredients together (oat flower, whey protein powder, baking soda, salt, cocoa) 
3. In a medium sized bowl mix wet ingredients together (egg whites, splenda, applesauce, water) 
4. Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and mix together thoroughly. 
5. Spray 8×8 baking dish with a non stick spray and add the batter to the dish. Bake for 20-30 minutes in oven or until toothpick comes out clean. 

This should make 16 bars, and should be a very moist chocolate cake like protein bar.

Enjoy!

  1. I made this for Easter as a chocolate cake and it was absolutely delicious. I added a peanut butter swirl to it and then did the exact same icing as the Black Bean Brownie’s icing. You can find both the peanut butter swirl and chocolate icing at the following: https://fullbodydevelopments.com/nutrition/black-bean-brownies/

    If you have tried variations and it turned out, let us know what you did to make it your cake! 🙂
