Cookie Dough Chocolate Crunch Protein Bars

Cookie Dough Chocolate Crunch Protein Bars

Ok bold statement coming up…but I think these may be the best ever Vegan Protein Bars I’ve made! They are a no bake raw dessert/ snack with a crispy chocolatey buckwheat base topped with a soft cookie dough layer!

I definetly think its the base of these bars that has won me over! The smooth dark chocolate and peanut butter combination with the crunchy buckwheat puffs just works!

When you combine that with the cookie dough layer of almonds, oat flour and dark chocolate chips its the perfect texture and flavour match. 

I topped them off with some salted caramel pea snacks by BraveFoods, to add even more crunch and flavour and my oh my did they do just that! If you don’t have these pea snacks however you could use chopped nuts instead.

Like a lot of my protein bars these are also low in carbs and high in protein. This isn’t because I’m on a low carb diet but I tend to prefer to save a lot of my carbs for my three main meals in the day. I also find the high protein content in bars like these actually keeps me full until my next meal, whereas if I have a high carb snack I’m hungry again an hour later (but this could just be me!).

Anyway I think you guys will seriously love these bars and if you do make them I’d love for you to tag me in your pictures on Instagram or comment below.

Heres the recipe..
