Pumpkin Chocolate Fudge Cookie Protein Bars (Gluten Free and Low Carb)

These are the easiest no bake bars and perfect for the season! You are going to love how easy these are to make and the amazing combination of flavors; pumpkin spice, chocolate fudge bites and cookies!


Using simple and premium ingredients! In this recipe I'm featuring some of the amazing products from Naked Nutrition; their Vegan Pumpkin Spice Protein and their Naked Bar in Chocolate Fudge. You are going to love the combination of flavors... plus the fact that this recipe is easy to make and satisfying.



About these Pumpkin Chocolate Fudge Cookie Protein Bars:

Chocolate fudge is always a winner, paired with some seasonal love such as the pumpkins spice vibe and chocolate chip cookies just makes it even better! These protein bars are just going to be your next favorite snack.


Something that really makes this recipe a great tasting snack and recipe overall is the crunch... textures are everything! And it really brings up that extra taste of the Vegan Pumpkin Spice Protein base, plus if you haven't tried making recipes with protein you can expect a thick and creamy consistency from it.


Key Ingredients:

Adding some protein powder for extra creaminess and a satisfying filling. I have been also obsessed with the Naked Nutrition Vegan Pumpkin Spice Protein, perfect for the season, I felt for it at first smell (for real, it smells so good!), plus the ingredients Naked Nutrition use premium; no artificial sweeteneers, flavors or colors which is perfect!


The taste is always delicious too, this smooth vanilla is basically a healthy, dreamy and indulgent pumpkin spice milkshake (keto and vegan!), plus it has all the BCAA's.



This is simply a major combo that you cannot resist, hard to believe that this is also low carb and gut friendly! And, besides being insanely delicious, these bars have a fun, indulgent but healthy twist. I added some fudge and delicious Naked Bars as well (I couldn't resist!) in Chocolate Fudge. Each bar has 180 kcal, only 8 grams of sugar and 11 grams of fiber.


These follow of course, the same values. Simple and premium ingredients with no artificial flavors, sweeteners and colors, I truly appreciate it when it comes to looking for options, specially snack bars. For these they get a double win for me regarding taste and quality of ingredients.


The base of these Pumpkin Chocolate Fudge Cookie Protein Bars:

The base is made with simple ingredients and Naked Nutrition Vegan Pumpkin Spice Protein pea protein to keep it nutrient dense and gluten free. For the base I also included some MCT Oil and some keto coffee creamer in caramel (always check ingredients too!).


The MCT helps with nutrient absorption and it add the creaminess of the base of these pumpkin spice bars, if you don't have any you can also use your favorite nut butter or coconut oil.



Overall, these are the ingredients needed for these Pumpkin Chocolate Fudge Cookie Protein Bars:

So we've got our protein, our crunch factor all in this simply and wholesome recipe! As a foodie and nutritionist I believe that the quality of the ingredients can make the difference in our health and also make healthy food more sustainable.


In here we are using products that stick to whole some and nothing artificial; no artificial sweeteners, colors or flavors, and all the flavor!


Super nutrient dense! And and basically fail proof, you just mix well the ingredients of the base, chop the bars and cookies and freeze. These are just LEGIT AND DELICIOUS.
