Homemade protein bars are a delicious and highly convenient way to provide your body with a boost of energy and nutrients. Quick and healthy snacks are almost essential in today's fast-paced life, making this Vegan Pumpkin Protein Bar recipe an enticing solution for those seeking a tasty and nutritious snack.

The idea of making your own protein bars has gained tremendous popularity in recent years, and for good reason. Homemade bars allow you to tailor the ingredients to your preferences, without the need for additives and artificial preservatives. These Vegan Pumpkin Protein Bars are no exception. They combine the autumnal flavor of pumpkin with a serving of plant-based protein that provides the body with essential nutrients. The protein in the plant-based protein powder from Vegan Protein is particularly bioavailable, as it includes a combination of various plant protein sources that are sprouted before processing. This means it contains all essential amino acids in balanced quantities, making it a high-quality protein.

Preparing the protein bars is incredibly simple and doesn't require any special cooking skills. Whether you're an experienced home cook or just starting to venture into making your own bars, this guide will surely inspire you and help you create the perfect Vegan Pumpkin Protein Bars. You can use the recipe with or without protein powder, but we recommend using plant-based protein powder for additional protein, ideally with Pumpkin Spice flavor. 🎃🍂

Using pumpkin in this recipe not only gives the bars their characteristic color and distinctive taste but also provides additional fiber and antioxidants. Whether as a quick pre-workout snack, a reward after a strenuous workout session, or a convenient on-the-go companion, these Vegan Pumpkin Protein Bars are truly versatile.


Start by mixing the oats with the Vegan Protein powder, baking powder, sodium bicarbonate, salt, and Pumpkin Spice seasoning in a bowl. In a separate bowl, combine the maple syrup, pumpkin puree, and oat milk, then add the oat mixture from the first bowl. Thoroughly mix everything into a uniform dough. Next, chop the dark chocolate into coarse pieces.

Place the dough into an ovenproof dish and sprinkle it with the dark chocolate and almond butter. Bake the dough for 15-20 minutes at 180°C with both upper and lower heat, and let it cool completely.

Afterward, cut the baked goods into bar-sized pieces. Now you can enjoy the homemade protein bars, bite by bite, whenever you crave a protein-rich snack. These bars can be stored in the refrigerator for several days. 🍫
