Chocolate Protein Bars



1 ½ cups of black beans (either 1 x 15 oz can drained and rinsed or half a packet of dried black beans – which can be soaked over night then simmered for 45 minutes and rinsed ready for use).

3 tbsp of cacao powder (preferably organic)

2 scoops of protein powder (approx. 90gm)

½ cup of honey or pure maple syrup

3 ½ tbsp of coconut oil (preferably organic)

1 tbst pure vanilla extract (preferably organic)

½ tsp baking powder

½ a packet of 85% cocoa chocolate (lindt or equivalent)




  1. Preheat the oven to 350 F or 180 C fan forced.
  2. Prepare a 9 x 9 baking tray spraying with cooking spray and set aside or use grease proof paper to line tray.
  3. Combine all ingredients except cocoa chocolate in a food processor and blend until you have a smooth consistency. A blender can be used but will not provide the same smooth consistency result.
  4. Pour mixture in baking tray and smooth over.
  5. Break up chocolate squares into 4 pieces each (approx. ½ inch in size) should have approx. 20 pieces.
  6. Place chocolate in a 5 x 4 configuration over mixture in tray.
  7. Cook for approximately 16 minutes then cool. It will look underdone but it is fine. Cool then place in the refrigerator. Cut into 20 pieces.
