I’m not sure where the idea for this maple and chocolate protein bar recipe came from, but this combination really is unexpectedly good. The coziness and aroma of the fall from the Maple, and the unending comfort of chocolate.

These bars are too good to say no to.


Ingredients for Protein Chocolate Maple Bars

These high protein chocolate maple bars are made with a few healthy ingredients (no butter) and some classic – and some healthy – halloween canday.

  • Vanilla Protein Powder for healthy, sugar free pumpkin cookie
  • I used Quest Nutrition Vanilla whey-casein since it works best for baking.
  • Almond Butter Powder, also known as Powdered Almond Butter. I use the one from PB2.
  • Peanut Butter Powder is another alternative. I recommend Lakanto (the code HAYLSKITCHEN gives you a discount here).
  • PbFit or PB2 are good options too.
  • Maple Extract
  • Zero Calorie Sugar – This is the Monkfruit 1:1 Sugar Substitute from Lakanto, and keeps this recipe sugar free; (code HAYLSKITCHEN for a discount here)
  • Whole Wheat Pastry Flour
  • Coconut Flour
  • Unsweetened Applesauce
  • Almond Butter; I’d recommend American Dream Nut Butter Cookie Batter Almond Butter; Code HAYLSKITCHEN gives you a discount.
  • Baking Soda
  • An Egg
  • 1:1 Sugar Free Powdered Sugar Replacement: I used Lakanto powdered monk fruit and erythritol sweetener (code HAYLSKITCHEN gets you a discount here too)

And for the chocolate topping on these maple bars:

  • Sugar Free Chocolate: I used the one from Lakanto here.
