Looking for ideas of making sweets for Diwali? Try my recipe for this no cook White Chocolate-Walnut and Dates Bar . As this no cook bar was such a success, I also made this versions of no cook high protein bars. These look a bit like millionaire’s bars you get in the shops so my kids were happy to try these. This recipe has ground oats, nuts, honey and protein powder topped with chocolate. The dish looks amazing and It’s such a quick and popular recipe that it’s going to be one of the sweets I make for Diwali. The main ingredients I used are:Oats: I used our everyday cereal oats which I ground in a coffee grinder.Peanut Butter: I used the smooth creamy one. Peanut butter is high in proteins and also help bind the bars.Protein Powder: You can use any brand or flavored of protein powder you have. I used the Impact Whey Protein Powder which comes in lots of different flavours. This protein powder was recommended to my husband by my son who is a physiotherapist who exercises a lot. This powder contains high-quality protein, which contributes to the growth and maintenance of muscle. This protein powder has sweeteners so no extra sugar is added to the barsChocolate: I used cooking chocolate but you can use any chocolate.Coarse salt: Just adding a little coarse salt gives this dish a salted caramel kind of a feel and you won’t stop eating these bars.
