I landed on them by total accident and I am so happy I did! I was trying to make protein balls but the batter turned out way too thin and I didn’t to try them out by adding too much solid ingredients. So once I saw the batter I thought what the heck, let’s pop this in the oven and see what happens. And thank god I did! These tropical mango protein bars are full of wholesome ingredients that are good for your body like coconut oil! If you are intrigued, read on!

These tropical mango protein bars are full of flavors and protein. They are my protein bar with the most protein in one serving. A lot of times protein makes baked things dried out but these are so moist- yup I just used the word moist. Opps just did it again :). These truly have a more bread like texture which I love.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup of dried mango (I’m not sure if fresh mango would work. It might make the batter too wet but longer oven time might help.)
  • 10-12 medjool dates
  • 1/8 cup of honey
  • 1/2 a very ripe banana (Ripeness does matter!)
  • 3 tablespoons of coconut oil– I like to use unrefined for a more pronounced coconut flavor
  • 3 1/2 scoops of your favorite protein Use code Mmessy for 15% off
  • 1 1/2 cups of almond meal- For this recipe I don’t use super fine but a regular or coarse blend

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Farenheit
  2. Soften dates and mango by putting in hot water and letting sit for 2-4 minutes. Drain water and pat dry.
  3. In a food processor, add the mango and blend until finely chopped.
  4. Next add the dates. Make sure the pit is removed first!
  5. Add 1/8 cup of honey.
  6. Melt the 3 tablespoons and add it to the mix.
  7. Add your banana and blend.
  8. Add your protein and almond meal.
  9. Put in a sprayed 9×9 dish.
  10. Bake at 350 degrees Farenheit for 10 minutes.
  11. Lower the temperature to 180 degrees Farenheit for 20-25 minutes. They are done when your toothpick comes out clean.

They are SO easy and seriously so full of flavor! Let them cool and then proceed with the frosting. You can skip this step, if you want, because they are that good on their own.

Glaze Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon of coconut oil
  • 4 ounces of vanilla yogurt (I use Yoplait YQ!)
  • 1/2 scoop of vanilla protein

Glaze Instructions

  1. Melt the coconut oil in the microwave
  2. Stir in the yogurt and protein powder.
  3. Dip the top of your bars in the glaze. Enough to coat the top.
  4. Let it until hardened.
  5. Enjoy!

Keep these tropical mango protein bars for up to a week in an airtight container. hope you like them as much as I did! You can switch up with the nut meal. I also used pecan meal and loved that too. Leave your comments below and let me know if you enjoyed them! If you are looking for more nutritious or protein rich bars click here! My twix bars are a real crowd pleaser too. Happy baking friends!
