PCOS Diet Friendly Chocolate Mint Protein Bars

Chocolate Mint Protein BarsI always keep a protein bar in my purse (and a couple stashed in the car) for a quick snack on the go. Below is one of my favorite recipes for a refreshing bar that boosts my energy, satisfies my chocolate craving and is PCOS diet friendly.  What could be better than a mint chocolate bar that is actually good for you?

 

Chocolate Mint Protein Bars

12 servings

1 1/2 cup rolled gluten-free oats (ground in a blender to a coarse flour)

1/2 cup almonds

1/2 cup walnuts

3 scoops PCOS Diva Power Protein

1/3 cup plus 1 T finely ground almond flour

1/4 cup plus 1 T raw cacao powder

2 T hemp seeds

1 T chia seeds

1/2 unsweetened apple sauce

2T maple syrup

1 tsp. peppermint extract

36 chocolate chips (I use Ghirardelli 60% cacao chips.)

Grind gluten-free oats in blender until they become a coarse flour.  Place in large bowl.  Grind almonds and walnuts in high speed blender until finely chopped.  Add to bowl.  Add Power Protein, almond flour, cacao powder, and seeds.

In a small bowl, combine apple sauce, maple syrup and peppermint extract.  Then fold into mixture in large bowl.  Combine well.  Mixture will be sticky.  Press into a 8×8 pan sprayed with coconut oil. Press in three choc chips per bar.

Freeze for about 15 minutes or until set.  Slice into 6 rows then slice rows in half to make 12 small bars.  I store these in the freezer.

    I love this recipe but am allergic to walnuts. What would be the best substitute for them? I don’t have problems with other tree nuts and am bored with just doubling the amount of almonds. Thanks, Amanda
