Are you struggling this morning? I feel great, actually. Much better than yesterday when I woke up feeling like I'd been hit by a bus, thanks to Little A's sleepover birthday party, which had all of us exhausted. But Little A got up this morning even grumpier than yesterday. Even though she slept almost 12 hours! She whined non-stop about how tired she is, how she didn't want to go to school today and she just wanted to go back to sleep. Welcome to Monday little one!
Anyways, I have a new recipe for you today: Blueberry Muffin 'Quest' Bars!
I used the basic idea from my homemade Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Quest bars (which the girls still say are the best protein bars ever, even better than any you can buy!) but made these nut-free, and lighter by using dried blueberries instead of chocolate chips.
These are so easy to make, you have to try them! Just remember, the base is primarily protein powder, so make sure you use a high quality protein powder that you like, because that will obviously affect how these taste!
Blueberry Muffin "Quest" Bars
1.5 Cups Vitafiber IMO syrup
2 Cups vanilla protein powder (whey or vegan, stevia-sweetened)
8 tbsp coconut flour
1 cup dried blueberries
Pour syrup into pot over medium heat until bubbling. Remove from heat and add protein powder and coconut flour. Mix until dough forms. Stir in blueberries. Press into parchment-lined 9x9 square baking pan and refrigerate until firm. Cut into bars or squares. Keep in airtight container up to 2 weeks.
I have shared this recipe with Urban Naturale's Plant-Based Pot-Luck Party Link-up.
