Paleo Protein Bars

Paleo Protein BarsThe Paleo Diet has quickly emerged as one of the most interesting and most popular diets to hit the current fitness landscape in quite some time.

The reason for the diet’s popularity is simple. The diet is healthy and it contributes to weight loss as it eliminates many processed foods that can lead to inflammation and ill-health. Now, those looking to eat a Paleo snack that helps their weightlifting routine have found one in the form of the WOD Bar.

Yes, our paleo protein bars have arrived and they definitely can contribute to better nutrition. For those who might not know what the Paleo Diet entails, the diet is based on the hunter/gatherer lifestyle of out ancient ancestors. The diet avoids sugars, grains, dairy, and other modern, processed creations. Instead, the diet is one rooted in natural items such as meats, fruits, vegetables, nuts, and the like. Now, a new health bar has emerged that stays true to the Paleo Diet.

What The WOD Bar Does

The 60g 180 WOD Bar is designed to help the fitness minded gain a number of benefits. Among those benefits would be an increase in energy, which is always helpful when hitting the gym. The bar is a great source of protein. That is a benefit that should never be overlooked. Protein is the building block of all muscle. As you increase your protein intake, you also increase the amount of muscle you can build. The WOD Bar also help the body with recovery after a workout. All the lost nutrients burned up or sweated out have to be replaced. The snack bar can do just that.

The Ingredients of the WOD Bar

There are quite a number of natural ingredients found in this health bar. All of these ingredients have the potential to provide the body with a significant amount of nutrients. Flaxseed, grass fed whey protein isolate, almond meal, chocolate cocoa, and more are all included as part of the mix. Each ingredient contributes to a unique metabolic function. Cocoa helps boost energy. Whey protein can build muscle mass which, in turn, can speed up the metabolism. Organic rice malt help deliver low glycemic index carbohydrates over an extended period of time.

Over to Keira…

Keira: After returning from a mini-holiday I immediately got a couple of requests for meals. One of them being ‘healthy choc-chip cookies’ from my little brothers. So here it is: my healthy dark choc gluten free protein cookies, did I mention that they are paleo friendly?

Like all of my recipes, I try and make them as healthy as possible. But remember – moderation is key! That didn’t stop my brothers eating 2 batches of these though.

  • 1/4 vanilla pod seeds scraped
  • 1/4 almond extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon stevia
  • 1/2 cup almond milk
  • 150g 80% dark choc or cacao nibs

Method:

Combine the dry ingredients (180 protein powder, almond meal, baking soda & salt) into a large bowl.

In a separate bowl add the remaining ingredients and stir until well combined. Slowly add the dry ingredients to the wet and mix well.

180 Nutrition, Video Recipes

Guy: Hi. This is Guy of 180 Nutrition, and today I want to show you how to make a very
simple snack.

It’s a high-protein biscuit, and it’s going to be made from completely all-natural
ingredients: the ones I’m showing in front of you.

So, naturally, we’re going to be using 180 natural protein supplement. I’ve got chocolate 180 here, and of course you
can use the coconut as well.

All we need is one egg, some coconut oil, we’re using some chopped prunes, we’ve also
got; these are chopped macadamias and almonds. Your preference of choice.

Here’s nut meal, shredded coconut, almond paste, and some water. And I’m just about to
show you how simple all of this is.

OK. We’ve got a 50-gram scoop. The 50-gram scoop is gonna be two scoops of chocolate
180 protein supplement, like so.

Now, here’s the nut meal. The nut meal is roughly about half a scoop, give or take. OK?

And we’re gonna use a full scoop of coconut. Now, this stuff is not the easiest to scoop so
I might as well just tip some in. There you go. I’ve done it, right there.

And put in an egg. One egg.

Then, this is a dessert spoon so a dessert spoon, tablespoon, I know they’re similar. This
is just some fresh mineral water. Just a spoon of that.

And then we want two tablespoons of coconut oil. One. Two.

And two tablespoons of almond paste. Like so.

And then mix altogether.

Get a nice consistency.

By 180 Nutrition

Does your family think you are slightly odd as you avoid the landmines of mass overindulgence over the festive season? Or are you someone who lets your hair down and says sod it, so you stuff yourself like the turkey you are about to eat!

Either way, if you are looking for a tasty, high protein paleo friendly snack, then these stars might just do the trick. You can hand the paleo snacks out to the relatives without them thinking you belong to some strange food cult, and get praise for creating these healthy and festive treats! Enjoy!

Ingredients

  • 1 & 1/2 cups almond meal
  • 1/2 cup 180 protein powder
  • 1 – 1 & 1/2 tbs cinnamon
  • 2 eggs
  • Juice of half an orange
  • Orange zest
  • 1/2 – 1 tsp stevia or to taste

Step 1

Mix all the ingredients together in a large bowl and it should make a sticky dough.

Place the dough in the fridge for about 20 min so that it is easier to handle when you roll it out.

Then roll the dough between two sheets of baking paper to about 5 mm thick.

Use some festive christmas cookie cutter shapes and cut out all your favorite biscuit shapes.

Step 2

Pop onto a baking tray and bake for 12 minutes at 160 degrees.

Optional – As it’s Christmas: When the Stars are cool, melt down three squares of 70% Lindt chocolate and pipe some chocolate onto the biscuits into cute shapes and viola!!!

So there you have it, some great paleo friendly high protein snacks… Bring on the party!
