Recipe of the day Gluten-free apple pie protein bars

Rezept des Tages Glutenfreie Apfelkuchen Proteinriegel

Apple pie doesn't have to be overloaded with sugar and can also be high in protein - here's the recipe.

Preparation time: 40 min

Servings: 4


  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • ½ cup of vanilla-flavored protein powder
  • 4 tablespoons coconut sugar
  • 4 tablespoons natural almond butter
  • 4 tablespoons almond milk
  • 4 tablespoons coconut flour
  • 2 tablespoons cinnamon
  • 1 apple cut into slices


  1. Steam the apple slices until they are soft. You can peel the apple before steaming or steam it with the skin on, depending on your preference.
  2. Mix the remaining ingredients in a food processor until you have a soft dough.
  3. Press the dough into a small silicone brownie mold. Place the apple slices on top of the batter and sprinkle with cinnamon.
  4. Bake the bars at 170 degrees for 15 to 20 minutes or until a knife inserted into the dough no longer sticks. If you like the bars really soft on the inside, you should take them out of the oven when they are still a little sticky on the inside.
  5. Leave the bars to cool completely before cutting and eating.
  6. Note: You can also replace the almond butter with other nut butters. You can also use normal milk instead of almond milk.
