Chocolate Oatmeal Protein Bars

These no bake chocolate oatmeal protein bars are a healthy snack the whole family can enjoy.

Recipe from Chocolate Covered Katie (chocolatecoveredkatie.com)

Prep Time 5 minutes
Total Time 5 minutes
Yield 10 - 12 bars


  • 1 1/2 cup quick or rolled oats (for low carb, try these Keto Protein Bars)
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup butter, peanut butter, or allergy friendly sub
  • 1/2 cup pure maple syrup, honey, or agave
  • 2/3 cup protein powder of choice - have fun with different flavors (70g)
  • 4 oz melted chocolate chips or bars


  • Stir first 5 ingredients well. Transfer the mixture to an 8-inch pan lined with parchment or wax paper. Place a second sheet of paper on top and use it to smush down and spread the mixture until it fills the bottom of the pan evenly. Carefully melt the chocolate. (I like to stir 2-3 tsp oil into the melted chocolate for a smoother sauce that's easier to coat, but it's not required.) 
    You can either spread the melted chocolate on top of the pan, refrigerate or freeze until firm, then cut into bars OR freeze the pan before adding chocolate, cut into bars once firm, then dip each bar in the coating and chill to set.
