There is no need to purchase protein bars with ingredients you don’t want when it’s far cheaper and more nutritious to make your own. They’re super easy and you’ll have full control on adding custom ingredients for the highest return on your health.  

2 ripe bananas
1/2 cup coconut oil
3 cups quinoa flakes
1 cup shredded unsweetened coconut
1/2 cup dried cranberries
1/2 cup dried apples, cut into small bits (you can use any combo of dried fruits such as dates, cherries, mangoes, apricots, raisins, etc)
1 cup chocolate chips
1/2 cup sunflower seeds
1/2 cup walnuts, chopped (you can use any nut combo you prefer to make 1cups of nuts.)
1 cups of maple syrup/honey/molasses
1 cup organic peanut butter (or any nut butter of your preference. almond, pecan, cashew, etc.)
6 scoops of hemp protein powder
4 Tbsp. ground flax
4 Tbsp. Chia seeds
1 Tbsp. cinnamon
2 tsp. vanilla extract

Throw everything into your food processor, vitamix or equivalent, and mash it all up together well, adding ingredients as you go. Line a 9×13 pan with parchment paper so you can lift the bars out when frozen to make cutting the bars easier later. Spread out mixture well and then freeze for a few hours. Remove from freezer and slice into bars. Wrap individually or not and keep them in an airtight container in the freezer or fridge. Enjoy!

  1. excellent recipe, going to grab the ingredients this morning when I deliver my kale at the health food store and give it a try!

  2. Well, I have the Hemp Protein Powder, the local raw honey, and the Pure Fine Vanilla Extracts….. I am off to a good start!

    That reminds me, I need to whip out another batch of Oatmeal-Peanut Butter Cookies today, I ate the last one last night. I am in a panic mode over it hahaha

    1. Not the chocolate oatmeal peanut butter cookies, Smiladog?

      I’m surprised digger didn’t post this one. lol

      1. yea, actually chocolate chips too. and I just got done making another batch right now. I just sat down from cooking them. hahaha

      2. Yes I know guys. My PC is not worth much anymore. It took almost 10 min. and two tries just to get this reply done 🙁 . Any way this does look like a good recipe and your recipe below on that link is a real good one. I reccomend Dr. Dianes olive oil cannibis recipres – she has some real good ones 🙂 Off sub. a bit #1, but I`ll get ahold of ya this week end if all right. Got a few questions for ya #1.

        1. You know you can call me anytime, digger. 🙂

          (Except for next weekend, that is. I’ll be MIA from Thur. till Sunday night, due to the Christian retreat that I work twice a year. And the job I have this time is far more time-consuming than any of the others, so I most likely won’t be on FTT, or very little, if at all).

          1. Thanks #1, I will try to mail or call ya Sun or Mon., Nothin` serious i just got a few questions.
