    I’ve been on a mission to create loads of variations of my popular, no-bake protein powder bars here. And every single time, they just keep getting better and better!

    It’s been my goal this past year to eat 40% of my macro calories in protein, which is usually between 100-150 grams of protein. So, I like to have options for my protein powder beyond shakes. (see my protein powder taste test here)

    How to flavor no-bake protein bars

    There’s many ways to flavor your homemade, no-bake protein bars. Some ways that I’ve experimented with include:

    • Using different flavored protein powders. I love a classic vanilla whey protein powder, like the Optimum Nutrition from Costco. This makes a base that you can use in a variety of flavors. But, I also LOVE flavored powders like Protein Cookie Butter, where I made this birthday cake baked oats, Salted Caramel from Clean Simple Eats, or cookies and cream!
    • Use different extracts or flavored zero calorie syrups! I couldn’t believe it when I finally noticed my Walmart had cake batter flavored extract, caramel extract, and of course vanilla, lemon, orange and almond extract. All of these would make yummy flavored protein bars.
    • Use Sugar free Jello mix! I’ve been using sugar free Jello or pudding mix for SO MANY recipes! In fact, I just started a pinterest board for my Jello obsession. So, to make this recipe lemon flavored, I used the Lemon Sugar Free Jello mix! So easy!

    With those low calorie flavor ideas, you can literally make a homemade protein bar recipe any flavor you wish! So easy!!

    For this recipe, I wanted to do sort of a copycat (in name only) to a Lemon Blueberry Luna bar! So, this is what I came up with!

    • vanilla protein powder
    • lemon flavored jello mix
    • blueberries
    • oats
    • cashew butter to hold it together
    • and sugar free white chocolate to make it EXTRA tasty!!
