Best Protein Bars in the World

This has to be one of the best recipes in my whole world! Life can get really busy and making sure you are getting a healthy snack when you are busy can be a challenge, to say the least! I came up with the recipe by mixing a couple of recipes together and swapping some things out because I can’t eat a few things and I must say, it is so quick and easy to make.

It started as a very bland mixture of rolled oats, some vanilla protein powder, and some almond milk. I was looking a for something I could make easily that I could use as a healthful snack when I am on the go.

I’m not a fan of vanilla and I was having a craving for some chocolate. I had some chocolate whey protein, cocoa powder and a few leftover dark chocolate chips in the cupboard. Perfect!

Keep these healthy and a great nutrient dense snack to tide you over between meals; complex carbs, natural sugar, dark chocolate goodness and some healthy fats.

These could easily be turned into something that would compare to a regular chocolate bar and not so healthy if you are substituting with the not-so-great milk chocolate chips. Stick with the unsalted nuts and don’t go overboard on the peanut butter. 🙂 (I know you want to!)


2 ½ cups whole oats
5 scoops chocolate protein powder (I used Whey protein)
½ cup raisins (optional, but better with)
½ cup crushed mixed nuts (optional)
½ cup 80% dark chocolate chips
2 tsp cocoa powder
½ cup natural peanut butter
½ cup unsweetened almond milk


Line a 9×13” pan with wax paper

Mix all the ingredients together in a bowl

Firmly push mixture into pan and evenly spread out

Put in freezer for 20 minutes to set.

Remove from pan and cut into 12 -14 bars
