Apparently I am on a chocolate kick lately. It seems like whenever I create a new “protein” recipe it contains chocolate of some form! The last recipe I shared with you was my Fudgy Shakeology Bites. They are ridiculously good so if you liked those you will totally love this new recipe I have for you!
One of my clients had asked me which “Protein Bars” were healthy. While there are some out there that I do love, for example: Quest Bars, I do prefer to make my own because most protein bars have other unwanted ingredients. Some of those ingredients I don’t know much about so I try not to buy them.
I told her I was going to get in the kitchen and create my own Protein Bar Recipe and I did.
This recipe only took me 5 MINUTES TO MAKE! It’s probably the easiest thing to make.
With only 5 ingredients and no added sugar, this protein bar is Chocolatey, Satisfying & Filling!!
1/4 Cup Peanut Butter
1/2 Cup Coconut Milk (**see note below**)
1 1/2 cups Quick Oats
1/2 tsp Cocoa Powder
2 Scoops Chocolate Shakeology
In a medium bowl combine all the dry ingredients and mix well. Add in the milk and peanut butter, and mix until dough like. I used my hands and it gets messy but it mixes better! In an 8X8 pan place wax paper on the inside and let it hang off the sides.
Spray with cooking spray and add protein mix. Spread the dough evenly and pop in the freezer for an hour. Cut into 12 bars.
**Please note the “Coconut milk Beverage” that was used in this recipe is So Delicious Coconut Milk I love this beverage.**
It is light, delicious, dairy free, gluten free, contains vitamins & healthy fats.
I have already made a couple batches of these bars and I love keeping them on hand for post workout snacks or even mid day when I am craving something chocolatey!
What is your favorite brand of protein bars?
Have you ever tried making your own?

I love Quest bars… these looks like a great alternative. Why are they so expensive?!

Quest bars are delicious!
At first I thought the same thing, but after trying Shakeology and noticing a difference in my energy level and overall health, I understood why it is priced the way it is!
