These Rocky Road Protein Bars are low in carbs, high in protein, and low in sugar. They have no shortage of chocolate flavor, marshmallows, and sliced almonds either! These bars are perfect late night protein-snack-turned-dessert.
NOTES: You can use twice as much oat flour in place of the coconut flour, or any nut or seed butter besides almond butter. You can also swap the chocolate syrup for sugar free pancake syrup, maple syrup, honey, or even water (not as chewy of a texture and more crumbly).
