Power Up with Protein: Cashew Protein Slice with 99th Monkey's Salted Cashew Butter

Posted by Nick Sheridan on

Life can get hectic, and sometimes finding healthy snacks that are both delicious and satisfying feels like a mission impossible. But what if we told you there's a solution that's not only quick and easy to make but also packed with protein, fibre, and the irresistible flavour of 99th Monkey's Salted Cashew Butter? Introducing the Cashew Protein Slice, your new go-to snack that's perfect for pre-workout fuel, post-workout recovery, or simply a satisfying treat throughout the day.

This recipe is not just about convenience. We've carefully chosen each ingredient to deliver a nutritional punch. Oats provide sustained energy with their complex carbohydrates and fibre, while protein powder helps you build and repair muscle tissue. Psyllium husk adds additional fibre and promotes gut health, and the touch of honey balances the sweetness without compromising on the benefits. But the true hero of this recipe is, of course, our 99th Monkey Salted Cashew Butter. Made with only roasted cashews and a pinch of sea salt, it adds a creamy texture, a delicious salty-sweet flavour profile, and a healthy dose of protein and monounsaturated fats.

Ready to get your bake on? Here's what you'll need:


  • 135 g rolled oats
  • 1 scoop of protein powder (chocolate, vanilla, or berry flavour)
  • 10 g psyllium husk
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 177 ml unsweetened almond milk
  • 65 g 99th Monkey Salted Cashew Butter
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 80 g frozen blueberries (or other fruit of your choice)


  1. Preheat your oven to 180°C. Line an 8x8 inch baking pan with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the oats, protein powder, and psyllium husk. Mix well.
  3. In a separate bowl, whisk together the honey, almond milk, vanilla and 99th Monkey Salted Cashew Butter until smooth.
  4. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix until well combined. The mixture will be thick and sticky.
  5. Fold in the frozen blueberries (or other fruit) gently.
  6. Press the mixture evenly into the prepared baking pan.
  7. Bake for 20 minutes, or until desired texture. 
  8. Let the slice cool completely in the pan before cutting into squares.

Tips and Variations:

  • For a sweeter slice, add another tablespoon of honey.
  • If the mixture seems too dry, add a little more almond milk, one tablespoon at a time, until it reaches a spreadable consistency.
  • Want to experiment with different flavours? Try adding chopped nuts, seeds, or dried fruit to the batter.
  • For a vegan option, use vegan protein powder and plant-based milk.
  • Store the protein slice in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to a week.
