If, like me, you have had enough of chugging down on your favourite protein shake before and after each workout you’ll be pleased to know that there is another way!
These bars don’t taste like protein, they taste like a sophisticated, gorgeously coffee flavoured cookie dough – no joke. The texture is melt in your mouth smooth, and with the extra addition of activated buckwheat groats you get a satisfying crunch with it all too.
These Vegan Coffee Cookie Dough Protein Bars are a fun way of getting your daily dose of protein. Ditch those shakes and pick up the chocolate!
But let’s look at the nutrition. If you cut these into 4 chunky bars, each bar will contain roughly 22.5g of protein. They’re also relatively low carb too so you can eat 2 of them without the need for worrying about a hefty sugar intake – and let’s be honest that’s like any dessert lover’s dream come true.
I’ve also used coconut oil as it’s a rich source of MCTs (medium chain triglycerides), a high-energy fuel that your body uses to prevent muscle loss and take off body fat.
As PERFORM is sweetened with stevia it really is sweet enough as it is – although I’ve put maple syrup on my list of ingredients as I know that some people may like things a little sweeter. I highly advise to go without if you are wanting to hit your weight loss targets but sample both the cookie dough and chocolate and sweeten if you feel you need to.
