Healthy Mo-tella Fudge DIY Protein Bars (Nutella-ish, but BETTER!)
What are these Healthy Mo-tella Fudge DIY Protein Bars you speak of? They’re basically like Nutella-infused protein bars — sweet, chocolatey, and hazelnutty — but without all the junky ingredients. These are made secretly GOOD for you! They’re no bake, super easy to make, decadently fudgy, and supremely addictive. You’d never know they’re sugar free, whole grain, gluten free, dairy free, and vegan! 🍫🌰💪
Wholesome and all natural chocolate-hazelnut protein bars? Yes puh-lease.
One bite and you’ll be screaming, “Gimme MO of those Mo-tella Protein Bars!!”
Did you happen to see last week’s post for my Healthy Matcha Green Tea Fudge DIY Protein Bars? 😁
In that post I officially announced that I (finally) finished the DIY Protein Bars Cookbook revamp! 🙌
Retested the recipes, rephotographed them, redesigned the book’s interior. New errthang.
It seemed fitting to host a giveaway. Since brown rice protein powder is the staple protein used throughout the book, I’m giving away my cookbook AND protein powders (both vanilla + chocolate). A HUGE thanks to SunWarrior who was so kind to provide all the protein powders for this celebration giveaway. Only a few more days left in this giveaway so sign up, sign up, SIGN UP!! (Can I just say, I’m jealous of all the future winners? I wish I coulda had free protein powder to test all these recipes!!)
Anyways, let’s talk protein bars now.
Healthy Mo-tella Fudge DIY Protein Bars, that is 🍫🌰💪
LOOK AT THE FUDGINESSSSSS!
If you’re looking for a tasty, quick breakfast/snack on the go, make these Healthy Mo-tella Fudge DIY Protein Bars. Natural ingredients come together to make this fudgy goodness as guilt-free as possible so you can feel good about eating them. You can have ALL the taste of Nutella® but without all the nasty sugar, added oils, and preservatives.
These protein bars are for serious chocolate lovers only. Either join the chocolate-lovers club or get outta here ✋🍫
You must make these protein bars as soon as you step foot inside your kitchen. You will have quick and easy snacks all ready for you for the entire week! If they last that long. All by myself, these lasted me 3 days (there is NO such thing as taking things slowly). When I was in college, I used to take them to school to snack in between classes. Every time the bell rang, a huge smile would creep on my face. Oh yeah, the bell meant it was snack time. I’d eat a protein bar before class (for concentration, fuel, and energy) and a protein bar after class (as a post-class reward, duhhh) 🤗
I wonder how long this chocolate-hazelnut goodness will last in YOUR home. Not long, I’m sure. Not long at all 😏
Healthy Mo-tella Fudge DIY Protein Bars
- **You can buy hazelnut butter online or you can make it at home. Making nut butters at home saves a TON of money, but you do need a good food processor to do it!
- Do not use whey/egg/casein protein! The mixture will be gooey and won't solidify.
- Keeps for ~1 week in the fridge or ~3 months in a sealed sandwich baggie in the freezer.
