On-The-Go Moringa High Protein, Low Carb Bars!

On-The-Go Moringa High Protein, Low Carb Bars!

The Moringa high protein low carb bars are one of my “happy accident” recipes! I threw these together early this morning. I was expecting to have something simple and healthy that only I would enjoy eating to curb my appetite.

However, the Moringa high protein low carb bars turned out to have a pretty great taste! So, I decided to share the recipe with some people that are on a gluten-free diet.

This recipe is very similar to the Keto-Friendly Moringa Energy Bar recipe. The main difference is that the Moringa High Protein, Low Carb Bars are baked and ready to travel with you on-the-go!

The main ingredients are almond flour, peanut butter, and Moringa powder. All three are high in vegetable-based proteins and fiber. Moringa is high in fiber, iron, calcium, protein, and Vitamin C.

I shared some of the amazing Moringa Health Benefits, And Why Its Not Just Another Tea! earlier. And followed by a request for Moringa Products on one of our social media pages, I shared a page with a list of Moringa products available online.

So, lets get to the recipe!

Moringa High Protein, Low Carb Bars

High Protein Low Carb Bars

Oven: 325 degrees | Bake: 30-35 mins | Serves: 12

Ingredients:

1 C. Almond Flour

2 Tbsp. Unsweetened Coconut Flakes

1 Tbsp. Moringa Powder

2 Tbsp. Lily’s Sugar-Free Chocolate Chips

2 Monk Fruit in The Raw Packets

1/4 Tsp. Morton’s Sea Salt

2 Tbsp. Sugar-Free International Delight Pumpkin Spice Coffee Creamer (Gluten-Free)

2 Tbsp. Simply Jif Creamy Peanut Butter

1 Tsp. Organic Virgin Coconut Oil

1 Tsp. Vanilla Extract

2 Tbsp. Salted Butter

Preparation:

  1. Add almond flour, unsweetened coconut flakes, Moringa powder, sugar-free chocolate chips, monk fruit sweetener, and salt to a medium-sized mixing bowl.
  2. Stir until dry ingredients are well-mixed.
  3. Next, add all of the the remaining moist ingredients.
  4. Stir until a cookie dough-like paste is formed.
  5. Place a sheet of parchment paper on a cookie sheet.
  6. Dump mixture into the center of the parchment paper.
  7. Using clean, dry hands form the dough into a flat square or rectangle until it is about 1.5 inches thick.
  8. Slice the dough using a sharp knife or pizza cutter.
  9. Place in oven until cooked.
  10. Remove from oven and let cool.

Tips:

  • When cutting the raw dough, attempt to just imprint the bars to make them look clean cut. Otherwise, the coconut flakes will drag across the dough leaving a more jagged appearance.
  • If you try to handle the Moringa high protein low carb bars before they are completely cool, they will crumble.
  • Using your hands will help you shape the bars into a true square or rectangle. Alternatively, you could cover the cookie dough with another sheet of parchment paper and flatten with a rolling pin.
