I'm a snack lover. But naturally, I would like my snacks to be nutrient-dense and healthy. I'm an active person, and I want my nutrition to give me energy plus support my body. Therefore I would love to share with you two of my favorite homemade vegan protein treats. Both recipes include nutritional values!

Nutrient-dense, gluten, and dairy-free snacks

Sometimes, the protein bar discovered at the bottom of my bag has saved my day. Recently, however, I have become irritated by buying protein bars from the store. Firstly they are often full of additives, sweeteners, or sugar. And secondly, homemade vegan protein treats not only taste better, but they are also budget-friendly.

Of course, there are plenty of excellent and natural protein bar alternatives on the market as well. However, I wonder why I don't make protein biscuits and bars regularly at home, as with these recipes, it doesn't take a lot of time. The preparation goes fast, and you can make both recipes at the same time. They included lots of the same ingredients, which make them as said easy to prepare and also budget-friendly. You can even freeze the leftovers. This way you always have healthy alternatives at home.

High-quality homemade vegan protein treats

Also, be sure to check the protein powder you are using. Many proteins are full of additives and sweeteners. I personally prefer plant-based proteins. If possible, preferably organic ingredients.

Both recipes are also gluten plus dairy-free. And what's best - they are also fiber-rich! Also, both recipes include nutritional values. I hope you love these homemade vegan protein treats as much I do!

Have fun and enjoy the treats!
