No-bake, vegan, high protein Snickers bites.

If you have been following me for awhile now, you’ll know that I always have to have something sweet prepped for the week. I usually opt for a high-protein no-bake treat, because they’re my favorite and I always try and keep my blood sugar more balanced by including healthy fats and protein! These snickers bites are always on rotation – they are dangerous!

Do you have to use protein?

No! You don’t have to, however I love that a good tasting protein adds a little extra flavor and sweetness to the recipe. If you don’t have protein powder, just use more flour and a teaspoon of vanilla extract. You may also want to add a little extra sweetener.

What you need to make no-bake snickers protein bites:

Protein Powder: I always opt for Macro Mike because I absolutely love their flavors and the element it adds to the recipe! You can use the code “amb-dani” for a discount!
Peanut Butter: If you can’t have peanuts, feel free to sub any nut or seed butter! Sunbutter makes a great nut-free option.
Maple Syrup: Any sticky sweetener can be subbed.
Oat flour: I haven’t tested substitutes for this, but I’m sure almond flour would work, you would most likely need to use more than the recipe calls for.
Coconut oil: You can sub another neutral oil (avocado oil works great!)
Canned coconut milk: I haven’t tested a substitute, as you’re going to use the solid part from the top of the can.

How to make no-bake snickers protein bites:

It is so simple!

  1. Mix together the nougat base ingredients and press into your pan.
  2. Mix together the caramel ingredients and spread over the nougat base.
  3. Sprinkle on chopped peanuts.
  4. Place the pan in the freezer to firm up for an hour or two, before cutting them into bars/pieces.
  5. Melt chocolate and dip each bite, returning to the freezer until ready to eat.
  6. ENJOY!
