Homemade Quest-Inspired Bars. Low carb, gluten free.
Ingredients
For Cookie Dough flavored Quest Bar
  • 2 Tbsp VitaFiber Syrup
  • 1 scoop (30 grams or ¼ cup) whey protein, vanilla (I used Whey Gourmet Naturelle Vanilla)
  • 2 tsp almond meal (just ground up almonds)
  • 15 g (2 squares) no-sugar chocolate, chopped (I used Simply Lite No Sugar Added Milk Chocolate)
Instructions
For a firm bar
  1. Heat the 2 Tbsp of VitaFiber Syrup in a saucepan over medium heat. When its just starts to bubble, remove from heat and immediately add protein powder, almond meal.
  2. Place mixture in a plastic bag and knead until it starts to cool down. It will form into a bar.
  3. Add in the chopped chocolate once its cooled a bit. Still might melt a little.
For a softer bar
  1. In a small bowl, combine the VitaFiber syrup, whey protein, almond meal and chopped chocolate. Mixture will be slightly sticky to the touch.
  2. From here, it can be stored in a plastic bag, or you could also bake it in a 350 degree F oven for 5 minutes, or microwave for 15-20 seconds, as you would to a regular Quest bar.
