- Line a loaf pan with parchment paper, leaving some of the paper hanging over the edges. This will allow you to easily remove the bars from the pan later on.
- In a large bowl, add almond butter, chocolate protein powder, almond flour, maple syrup, vanilla extract, and salt. Mix together until evenly combined. You should be able to press the dough together with your hands. If it is too dry and crumbly, add extra maple syrup to bring in more moisture. After, add mini chocolate chips and mix together again.
- Next, transfer brownie dough to the loaf pan. Using clean hands, firmly press the dough across the bottom of the pan in an even layer. If desired, press extra chocolate chips into the top of the dough.
- Store inside the refrigerator for 30 minutes (or freezer for 5-10 minutes) to set the dough.
- Gently lift parchment paper to remove the dough from the pan. Slice into 8 protein bars. Enjoy!
- Store these protein bars in a sealed container inside the refrigerator for up to 1 week. For longterm storage, store in the freezer for up to 3 months.
