Well they can’t all be perfect can they!?  So, onto another recipe I was planning to post later in the week.  I actually had to recreate these protein bars a few times too before I got it down.  It was not a good weekend for me for cooking!

I think you’ll really like the fun twist on these protein bars.  Sprinkles just make everything better 🙂Funfetti Protein Bars ~ www.thehappyhealthfreak.com ~ #vegan #glutenfree #proteinbars

Makes 8 Bars

1 cup gluten-free oat flour (I used Bob’s Red Mill)
1/2 cup gluten-free oats
1/2 cup gluten-free crispy rice cereal (I used Nature’s Path)
1/3 cup vanilla vegan protein powder (I used Plant Fusion)
1/8 tsp sea or pink salt
1/2 cup cashew butter or any nut butter
1/3 cup coconut nectar (could sub with maple syrup)
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
2 Tbsp of sprinkles (optional, but necessary for the funfetti effect!)
Buy vegan, gluten-free sprinkles here

Protein Icing: (optional, not vegan unless you use dairy-free yogurt instead of Greek yogurt)
2 Tbsp vanilla protein powder
2 Tbsp Greek yogurt
1 Tbsp almond milk

In a large bowl, mix together the dry ingredients (first 5 ingredients).  Set aside.

In a small saucepan over low heat, add the cashew butter, coconut nectar and vanilla extract.  Heat for a few minutes until melted.  Add this to the dry ingredients, stir in sprinkles and mix well with your hands.

Press mixture firmly into a 9″ x 5″ loaf pan.  Refrigerate for a few hours until firm.

To make the protein icing, simply add all the ingredients to a bowl and mix well.  Smooth on top of protein bars.

Cut into 8 bars and keep refrigerated.Funfetti Protein Bars2
