Post-workout snacks [or any snacks] don’t need to be filled with fancy ingredients, speciality powders, or cost a bomb and these bars are a great example of that – made with a blend of seeds, nut butter, banana, and protein-rich quinoa. Delicious!
Protein barsPrint This
- 85g quinoa
- 85g almond butter

 Begin by cooking the quinoa as per instructions on the hob. Allow to cool completely.
 Place the quinoa into a bowl and add with the rest of the ingredients.
 Once combined empty into a greased or lined square baking dish and flatten firmly into the corners.
 Add some extra cacao nibs and pumpkin seeds and push gently into the top.
 Place in the fridge to set and harden for a minimum of 2 hours. You can then slice it into 8 full-sized snack bars or make 16 smaller snack bars.
