Homemade Quest-Inspired Bars. Low carb, gluten free.
Ingredients
For White Chocolate Raspberry flavored bar
  • 2 Tbsp VitaFiber Syrup
  • 1 scoop (30 grams or ¼ cup) whey protein, raspberry (I used Whey Gourmet Raspberry. Could also use vanilla, and add 2 tsp freeze dried raspberries)
  • 2 tsp almond meal (just ground up almonds)
  • ½ oz (1 oz square cut in half) white chocolate, chopped (I used Baker's White Chocolate)
Instructions
For a firm bar
  1. Heat the 2 Tbsp of VitaFiber Syrup in a saucepan over medium heat. When it just starts to bubble, remove from heat and immediately add protein powder, almond meal. Stir it around until it comes together
  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 white 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 white 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.
Notes
*Net carbs = 14 g *For lower carb, use straight cocoa butter vs. white chocolate, or sugar-free white chocolate if you can find it.
