Post Workout Snack

It’s no secret that athletes need protein to recover, strengthen and grow their muscles, so whether you’re horse riding, running or down the gym, make sure you replenish your body properly with a protein packed post workout snack.

Tahini Ginger and Dark Chocolate Protein Bars

Made with plant based pea protein, these warming ginger and tahini bars are punctuated with crispy bites of brown rice, and drizzled liberally with dark chocolate. They don’t hold back on the indulgent factor, but I can assure you they make a far more nourishing version to any you’ll find on the shop shelves. I can’t stop nibbling.

Makes roughly 8 bars

Ingredients

15g brown rice puffs

120g oats, pulsed into a textured flour.

 

40g Pea protein powder

1/2 tsp vanilla extract

110g tahini

1 tbsp ground ginger

1/4 cup 100% pure maple

50ml almond milk

40g dark chocolate

Pinch salt

Method

Line a small baking tin with grease proof paper.

Mix the coarse oat flour, pea protein powder, rice puffs, and salt together in a large bowl.

In a smaller bowl, mix the tahini, maple syrup, vanilla and almond milk.

Slowly add the dry ingredient to the wet. Mix until combined.

Press the sticky protein bar dough into the lined tray and push down until even. Place in the freezer for at least 15 minutes before coating with the chocolate.

Melt the chocolate, and liberally drizzle over the ginger tahini bars. Refreeze until set.

I find it’s best to keep the bars in the freezer where they should last for up to 3 months, not that they will last that long.
