These homemade Quest bars taste JUST like the real thing (perhaps even better – yep I said it!) but are a fraction of the cost. You only need to have a little look at my recipes to see that I am a huge fan of peanut butter, so I chose to add Quest craving peanut butter cups to these. Which turned them from tasty to woooaahhhh! I used chocolate whey for the base, you need a really tasty protein powder as this is what provides the base flavour, I used Smart Protein’s chocolate whey which is really creamy and was perfect for this recipe. You will also need the secret ingredient used in Quest bars which is IMO syrup and is available from Muscle Food (as are the PB cups!)
Prep: 10 mins
Cook: 5 mins
Yields: 4 Bars
1 pack of Quest craving peanut butter cups
60g chocolate whey protein
150g IMO syrup (otherwise known as Vitafiber)
1Heat the IMO syrup in the microwave for 30 seconds to make it easier to mix, then add the protein powder and mix until all the syrup is incorporated.
2Crumble the Quest craving cups into the paste, try not to break them up too much so you get to bite into a nice big chunk!
3Pour the mixture out onto some grease proof paper. Fold the paper over the mixture and roll out to your desired thickness, I tried to make mine as close to a Quest bar as possible (about 2 or 3cm)
4Pop this in the fridge for about an hour to firm up.
5You can then cut up your bars as big (or small) as you like. This recipe makes 4 decent sized bars.
