Homemade Low Glycemic Protein Bars

Posted by Amina AlTai on

So many of my clients live life on the go. They’re big shot entrepreneurs, brilliant consultants and next-gen thinkers that are globe-trotting and running to all four corners of the world on the regular. 

One of the biggest challenges I hear about their lifestyle is eating well while logging so much travel. They know all too well how vital a healthy diet and routine is -- especially when they’re working and thinking at such a high level -- but as they’re eating out more and leaving more of their meals to chance, macronutrient intake might get thrown off. This usually means more sugar and carbs and less quality greens and protein. So how can you prepare? Protein bars are usually full of sugar, trail mixes are loaded with gluten and preservatives and even salads are doused in dressings made from who-knows-what. So, for those times when you can’t control your schedule or where your meals are coming from, I came up with this protein bar

It’s low glycemic, high protein, and absurdly delicious.  All you need is:


  • 1 cup of almond meal
  • ½ a cup of coconut flour
  • ½ a cup of cashew butter
  • 1/3 a cup of dried blueberries (unsweetened)
  • ½ a tbs of coconut oil
  • ½ a cup of vegan protein powder (I used Sunwarrior Tribe)
  • A dash of salt


Mix all of the dry ingredients together with the cashew butter.  Add in the coconut oil and mix until all ingredients are well blended.  Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper and roll out the dough so that it is roughly half an inch thick.  Freeze for 15 minutes. 

Once the mixture is solid, cut into 10 servings.  You can store in an air-tight container in the fridge or individually wrap each one and store in the fridge until you’re ready to take with you. 

If making your own protein bars is too much work for your tight schedule, you can always check out my favorite travel snacks, too!
