Not Your Average Fruit Cake Protein Bars. Nutrition. 2013-12-20 | By: Snap Fitness A few things come to mind when you think of the holidays; cookies, carols, and of course fruit cake. For most of us, fruit cake is something that is frowned upon, but despite its bad rap, fruit cake is actually packed with lots of healthy dried fruits and nuts.

If your birthday guy or gal is watching their physique, or your kids don’t need to be bouncing off the walls, they will love your gift of no-bake birthday cake protein bars! What a great surprise when a decadent treat is good for you too. The quick, “piece of cake” version is to follow your choice of recipe on the back of any Creation Nation, Protein Bar Mix package, and then frost the bars. Serving size: 1 bar Calories: 245 Fat: 7 g Saturated fat: 5 g Carbs: 28 g Sugar: 3 g Sodium: 42 mg Fiber: 23 g Protein: 28 g Cholesterol: 1.5 mg 3.4.3177 Tags: birthday cake, homemade bars, low carb bars, Protein Bars.

These Birthday Cake Protein Bars are the perfect snack for when you’re craving something sweet, but don’t want the excess calories, sugar, and fat that come with a slice of cake. Instead of white flour, we use gluten free oat flour. Instead of butter and oil, we use natural almond butter.

I want to stress that protein bars should not be a daily food choice, because we want to opt for fresh foods and not too many processed foods in our diet. But sometimes we don’t have access to fresh foods, so it is fine to have a protein bar to provide your body with energy, especially on-the-go. The festive spiced bars are made with a buttery batter and lots of mixed dried and candied fruits and nuts. Protein: See Full Nutritional and delicious. The brown sugar and spices add just the right amount of flavor to the buttery cake batter.

Ingredients. 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour (6 3/4 ounces) 1/2 cup sugar 1/4 cup light brown. Each Layered Protein Bar is loaded with over 20g of protein, helping you to hit your daily protein needs in a delicious way — supporting both the growth and maintenance of your muscle mass. 1 Plus, every bar is packed with over 9g of fibre — supporting your everyday wellbeing. There are as many protein bars as there are types of protein.

Sadly, I couldn’t find a cricket protein bar for this test, but we’ve got many other forms of the nutrient: protein from nuts, egg white, flaxseed, oats, collagen, casein, soy, whey, milk, and brown rice all show up—not all in one bar though, thank goodness. Common protein bar fear number two: I don’t need all that protein if I’m not building muscle. Also false. Protein is necessary for supporting your body’s daily functions — not just muscle building, but all the other stuff, too. Breathing.

Growing hair and nails. Maintaining healthy skin. Additionally, hunger-fighting snacks are made.

  • To add on to what has already been said, this is a fantastic recipe. Nothing feels better than running six miles in the morning and eating an entire tray of brownies (cake bars). Thank you for the recipe.

  • Oh man I have to try these definitely! We don’t have birthday cake flavour here but vanilla or caramel sutra would work and I have it here. I’m loving the close up shots of the ingredients in the bowl too Kara. Thanks for this

  • Thanks Kara! It’s actually my bday today and i was getting ready to order more MTS… your favorite flavor line up video almost convinced me that bday cake would be the next one to try… this video puts the icing on the cake! ��

  • SORRY IDK WHAT HAPPENED TO THE SOUND IN THIS VID…SOMETHING WENT WRONG IN THE FINAL EDIT…I NO LONGER HAVE THE VID OR I WOULD RE EDIT IT. SO CRANK YOUR VOLUME TO THE MAX AND ENJOY LOL

  • just made this but instead of apple sauce i used peanut butter and also whey iso protein cookie flavour. just delicious!!!

    Thank you!!!!

  • I made these brownies and they were awesome. Thank you for sharing. I like how simple you instructed on how to make this great brownie recipe.����������

  • Where can I purchase this protein powder? I live in Pennsylvania. Another quick question… Is there a funny taste to this product? I must use protein after weight loss surgery. I’ve never found a product that has no after taste or a strange gritty feeling. I have stopped tossing money to products after I could open a health food store with all the products that I could not stand after one use. Thanks!

  • Can you tell me something about your mini blender? It’s pretty cheap, so I was wondering if It’s effective. Can I make peanut butter with it?

  • Sorry Ankit! In my newer videos I definitely work on improving the sleep factor (shorter intro, quicker, and a more friendly tone). Hope I can keep you watching! Thanks for the feedback my friend

  • Is it me, or does Protein Chef sound sedated in this video?  I wonder if the gym rats were teasing him again. Darned gym rats!!:l

  • Just made these in the form of cupcakes and used extra mashed banana instead of apple sauce and had no greek yoghurt. They turned out PERFECT! Very moist for a recipe that uses whey protein powder. Thanks for this!

  • Did you get out of workouts before this vid because if you didn’t that bar your eating is protein it makes get fat if you don’t do nothing but like I said if you worked out before this vid then your good

  • This is by far probably the best protein recipe ive tried that id want to go back and make again. Was worried since everytime i make something it just doesnt have the satisfaction in it. Thankyou heaps! I actually mucked up a recipe abit by adding 1/2 c instead of quarter of almond milk (was homemade so it was thicker anyways) and did 1/2c yoghurt by accident asweel but its turned out super moist like a sponge cake. Also used natural apple sweetner instead of artificial sweetner. Super depicious with fresh strawberries and whipped cream:)

  • I made these and they aren’t bad. I didn’t blend the oatmeal enough as I should but for the first go. I really like them. Derek you are awesome!!!

  • Maybe it’s just me; but it now seems that everything (types of Food) can be made  with protein powders; yet, it seems 2 me that it is as healthly as people say it is!

  • Made these bad boys. They are deadly, but I was wondering what you use to add moisty goodness to recipes? Is it the applesauce, or have you any other tips for making recipes more moist? Not for this recipe btw, just recipes in general. Thanks

  • I’m on low carb diet, for 2 more weeks. can I tweak the amount of oats keeping the rest the amount of the ingredients same? Will it turn out the same? 

  • So goo, today I’ve made it with some rye flour. Good and spongy:D
    Btw, it took more cow milk (2%) because of the protein I’ve used.

    thank you man

  • wow, just had a piece of it… really simple and delicious. very easy to make. I wonder, did you make more like caramel/vanilla/cinnamon version of this sort of cake? i would be very interested in different versions of this

  • Great vid! Who doesn’t love a man who works out AND can cook?? Quick question though, what protein shake do you recommend for weight loss for women? (I’m in Australia btw so we probably don’t have the same products but any advice would be great!) Thanks

  • These are the best tasting protein cake bars EVERRRR! I just made them and now I’m gunna keep on making them, thank you so much for the great recipe!

  • OMG finally someone who can bake! These turned out amazing… As usually with all your recipes. For sure gonna share your videos! Thank you so much!! Greetings from Canada:)

  • Just take some apples, cut em up, put em in a pot with a little bit of water and cook em for a while and then blend it up, bam there you go unsweetened apple sauce. I takes maybe 15 minutes, you can look up a more specific recipe via google if you want.

  • Great Bars Derek! One question, if insted of using 2 egg whites and 1 whole egg I used 4 egg whites, would that make a big change in the result?

  • I have a protein banana ice cream recipe that’s really good. I’m going to put a better one up once it gets a bit warmer around here!

  • Just tried this… And it’s great! Great texture and great flavor. It tastes just like a regular chocolate cake. Needs a more chocolatey flavor for my taste, but that’s easy to change. Thanks a lot for the recipe:)

  • I just made this. I made a few alterations. I used white oats instead of old style. I also added peanut butter instead of apple sauce for more protein and a good texture. The cake smells great and tastes great also. Oh and I used double chocolate whey protein.

  • These taste so good and are damn easy to make. Im no baker but you make it so easy. Thanks for making these posts you have got me in the kitchen and saving me from buying protein bars.  Keep up the good work:)

  • I really love this protein cake bar they look absolutely delicious…… but I do not have an oven at home so don’t have a chance to try it out > <. However, I will try out your 90 seconds protein cake soon! (Since it only required to be microwaved) Thanks for the great recipies! ^_^

  • Amazing. I haven’t eaten any desserts in almost 2 months due to my healthy eating and eating this was so nice. I calculated the nutritional value using my fitness pal and I gotta say I’m very impressed with how you managed to make these so incredibly healthy but at the same time delicious. These are an excellent source of protein and carbs. I’ll have to make some more, my family loved them too.

  • Thanks Anni! As long as the shake fits in your macros you can drink whatever you want. However for something lower in calories/fat Optimum Nutrition makes some great stuff that should be in Australia!

  • I have a mini blender (Elite is the name) and a Cuisanart SmartPower Dual which is both a blender and food processor. Neither of them are top of the line but they get the job done for now. The Vitamix 5200 suggestion above is a great one!

  • Yes Scoop!!! HOLIDAY PIES ARE BACK!!! I work at McDonald’s is South Carolina and we had them for about 3 weeks now, so check you local joint ‼️�� good vid by the way fammo
