Salted Caramel Protein Bars

With only a handful of ingredients these have become my go to hiking bar for an energy pick up with a cuppa.

Serves 9-10 bars

Cooks in 30 Minutes


  • 240g vanilla protein powder
  • 5 tbsp almond butter
  • Pinch of sea salt (if there is none in the almond butter)
  • 8 Medjool dates pitted (make sure they’re Medjool and not normal dates)
  • 12 tbsp water


  1. In a food processor add the protein, dates, almond butter and blend into a sand-like texture (I know that doesn’t sound appealing but it tastes good!)
  2. Slowly add the tbsps of water. When you have added all 12 tablespoons it should be in a smooth dough. Not too wet or not too dry.
  3. Shape into bars and melt the chocolate.
  4. Using 2 forks dip into the bowl of melted chocolate and coat the bars and place on a lined flat tray.
  5. Place in the freezer or fridge until set.
  6. Keep in the fridge for up to 7 days.
