Yogurt Dipped Energy Bar Recipe with Protein Powder Step-By-Step Instructions
In a bowl, pour in your rolled oats and for your binder to make sure the dry mixture stills together, add the honey (or alternative sweetener such as agave or maple syrup to make a vegan recipe).
Add your cinnamon and pinch of salt to the mixture for extra flavor, and mix well.
Add in protein powder of your choice.
Now would be the perfect time to add any additional ingredients of your choice such as dried apricots!
If the mixture is too dry, now is the time to add a tablespoon or two of water to your mixture. Add in little by little to check the consistency as you go. Thoroughly mix the ingredients together.
Take a pan and press the mixture in, making sure it is evenly well-packed.
Cover the pan with plastic wrap and place it in the refrigerator for about an hour to set the bars so they are able to hold their shape.
Once the energy bar is finished setting, flip over the pan to remove the energy bar from the pan and to reveal your completed energy bar recipe!
Once the bars have set, you can take them out and cut them into individual servings.
Create your yogurt mixture by adding the water, vanilla, yogurt and sugar(omit the sugar or use sugar alternative to accommodate for a diabetic diet plan) to a bowl and mix it well together.
Use a spatula to lather on the yogurt mixture on your completed energy bar.
Let the yogurt coated energy bar sit in the refrigerator for 30 minutes minimum before serving to allow the yogurt to set and harden!
