Copycat Mint Chocolate RXbars (paleo, No Bake)

By Fitfulfocus @fitfulfocus
Challenging workouts call for quality protein bars. These paleo, no bake Copycat Mint Chocolate RXbars will carry you through. They're simple, delicious, gluten free and sure to please. Copycat Mint Chocolate RXbars (paleo, no bake) This recipe originally appeared in the "50 Twenty Minute Recipes" Now Foods cookbook.

After making my Copycat Chocolate Coffee RXbars and Copycat Blueberry RXbars, I received a number of requests to recreate some other flavors. One of the most highly requested? Copycat Mint Chocolate RXbars!

I love these bars for a number of reasons. One, they're much less expensive than the real thing. Two, they taste just as good (if not better) than the real thing. Three, they make a great post-workout or mid-day snack.

I started by taking the base recipe from my other RXbar creations, tweaked it, tasted it, tweaked it and tasted it until I found the perfect chocolate mint combo.

It only takes seven simple, whole food ingredients to make this recipe (almonds, cashews, dates, egg white protein, cocoa powder, mint extract and chocolate). Like my other bars, these Copycat Mint Chocolate RXbars are a breeze to make. Toss all the ingredients in a food processor, give it a whirl and before long you'll have a nice sticky ball of protein bar dough.

Press or roll it out on a piece of parchment paper (you can place a layer of plastic wrap between your rolling pin and the dough if the dough keeps sticking) and refrigerate. After a few minutes, your sheet of dough will be ready to cut into bars.

I cut mine into 8-10 bars. If you make 10 bars from this recipe, each bar will have 189.5 calories, 7.7g protein, 7.3g fat, 23.3g carbs and 18.3g sugar. That's a solid 3:1 carb to protein ratio for post-workout recovery, so toss a bar in your gym bag, chow down after a tough run or WOD and devour after your sweat sesh. Happy taste buds. Happy muscles!
