Chocolate Peppermint Protein Bars

Chocolate and peppermint-lovers UNITE!

Your dream dessert bar awaits, this holiday season!

If you've never incorporated PROTEIN into your baking, NOW is the time.

Protein-powdered, rather than sugar-powered, is next-level baking...or in this case, 'no-bake' baking!

When baking is balanced with fiber, fat AND protein (like your main meals of the day - wink! wink!), you're absolutely going to notice a difference.

The composition is more SATIATING (as opposed to blood sugar-rattling!) because less is more and goes a lonnnnng way toward stabilizing your mood and energy levels, curbing your hunger and combatting any over-eating, too.

You're welcome. ;)

Here's what I especially love about raw, no-bake snacks and desserts:

  1. Minimal time to complete from start-to-end (but please account for chill time in the freezer) - easy!
  2. No need for a hot oven!
  3. Minimal steps!
  4. MAXIMUM flavour!

Have you heard of Canadian small business SMOOV™?

They have an incredible line of All-In-One Plant Based Blends (protein powders), including the Chocolate Dream variety highlighted in this recipe, and the flavour, taste and mouth-feel are OUT OF THIS WORLD!

What I love about these blends is that they pack 20 grams of plant-based protein per serving (pea, pumpkin seed and mung bean), along with freeze-dried produce and superfood sources, to yield one nutrient-dense + energizing fuel source!

The freeze-dried additions are highly anti-inflammatory ingredients, including sunflower seeds, cocoa, kale, spirulina, moringa leaf, goji berry, acerola cherry, pink pitaya, beet, blackberry, maqui berry, carrot, banana, maca and monk fruit extract (a natural sweetener that does NOT spike blood sugar levels).


They also do a fabulous job of their Superfood Powders and Superfood Blends!

If you make these no-bake protein bars, be sure to tag me on Facebook or Instagram with your creation, letting me know what you think of them, and so I can drool over what you've created in your own kitchen!
