These Chocolate Covered Caramel Pretzel Bar are sort of like granola bars/sort of like a candy bar. Except these babies are a million times better!
Unlike store-bought versions, these bites are vegan, refined-sugar-free, and higher in protein for delicious make-ahead treats that will leave you actually feeling satisfied. Am I the only one that could literally eat a whole box of packaged granola bars? Don’t even get me started on chocolate covered candy bars…
To make this recipe, add maple syrup, your milk of choice, and cashew butter to a saucepan over medium heat. Whisk the ingredients until everything is melted and well combined. Then, turn off the heat, and remove the saucepan from the burner.
Add in the crushed pretzels and protein powder, whisking until completely smooth. Next, line a small container with parchment paper, and press the mixture into the container. Be sure to create an even layer on top, and place it in the fridge for 2 hours. Or, if you’re impatient like me, just pop it into the freezer for 30 minutes.
Once hardened, melt the chocolate and coconut oil together in the microwave using 30-second intervals until smooth. Using the parchment paper, remove the hardened mixture from the container, cut 8 even squares, and dip each bite in the chocolate. Return them to the freezer until set, and snack away!
Full disclosure, I always use Nuzest USA proteins. I share them, because I genuinely love them and provide my code (thekellykathleen) to help you save money. However, I totally understand if you prefer to use a different protein or opt out of the code. I just can’t guarantee the outcome of the recipe if you use something else – pretty sure you know this already but I feel like something it’s necessary to cover my ass, ya know?
Dying to tell everyone you made this recipe and loved it?? Don’t forget to share a picture and tag @thekellykathleen so that I can profess my love to you and re-share it for all to see!
