No-Bake Dark Chocolate Protein Bars

Source: Soyfoods Association of North America

Food Fact

Soy protein powder is 90 to 95 percent protein and nearly carbohydrate and fat free. When the soybeans are processed after harvest, the protein isolate is separated from the plant’s other components and can be sold by itself as powder or incorporated into other food products for an extra boost of healthy, lean protein.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup soynut butter
  • 1 cup honey
  • 2 cups quick oats
  • 1 cup of dark chocolate chips
  • 1 cup dried cranberries or raisins
  • 1 cup milled flaxseed
  • 1 cup vanilla soy protein powder

Directions

  1. Using an electric mixer, combine soynut butter and honey. Add remaining ingredients one at a time, scraping sides after each addition, until evenly combined. Mixture will be very stiff.

  2. Press mixture into a 9 x 13 pan and refrigerate until ready to serve.

  3. Cut bars and store in refrigerator for up to one month.
