  1. Mix the almond flour, protein powder, rice crisps, cinnamon and salt together in a large bowl. 
  2. Mix the peanut butter, maple syurp and vanilla together then pour into the bowl and mix until everything is combined. If the mixture feels a bit dry, add 2-3 tsp of almond milk. (Don’t add too much!)
  3. Line an 8×8 inch pan with parchment paper then add the dough to the pan, pressing down evenly. Place in the freezer while you prepare the chocolate topping. 
  4. Melt the chocolate and coconut oil together then pour ontop of the bars. Place back in the fridge or freezer to set, then cut into even squares or bars. 
  5. Store in the fridge or freezer.  


Runny peanut butter works best in this recipe to bind everything together. If you find your dough is too dry to press into the pan, add a couple of teaspoons of almond milk and mix.

Don’t store on the countertop. These bars need to be refrigerated.
