Ingredients for Caramel Fudge Protein Bars Recipe:

These caramel fudge protein bars are made with simple healthy ingredients, have no sugar or milk, making them the perfect homemade gluten free, low carb and Vegan protein bar!

  • Oat Flour
  • Graham Cracker
  • Vanilla Protein Powder for healthy homemade protein bars that’s also sugar free
  • I used HTLT Supps Vanilla Whey-Casein here.
  • Quest Nutrition Vanilla Milkshake is another option.
  • Unflavored Protein Powder to replace some of the flour (and carbs) in the recipe for a slightly lower carb high protein. I use the Multi-purpose mix protein powder from Quest Nutrition.
  • Some Coconut Flour
  • Unsweetened Almond Milk

The Protein Caramel

  • Cashew Butter for the caramel flavor.
  • I used American Dream Nut Butter (The link gives you a discount)
  • Peanut Butter Powder, also known as Powdered Peanut Butter. I recommend Lakanto for a sugar free version (the code HAYLSKITCHEN gives you a discount). Or you could use the one from PbFit too.
  • Vanilla Protein Powder for high protein caramel bar, and also replace the sweetener.
  • I recommend Whey-Casein from HTLT Supps or Quest Nutrition for this recipe to keep it sugar free.
  • Some more Unflavored Protein Powder: Multi-purpose mix from Quest again.
  • Sugar free Maple Syrup for low calorie protein bar with no sugar!
  • I use the sugar free monk fruit maple syrup from Lakanto (code HAYLSKITCHEN gets you a discount)
