No-Bake Protein Bars

30 minutes


1.5 cups gluten-free rolled oats, blended into a flour
1/2 cup unsweetened/unflavoured vegan protein powder
1/2 cup rice crisp cereal
1/4-1/2 teaspoon fine grain sea salt, to taste
1/2 cup natural peanut butter, almond butter, or sunflower seed butter
1/2 cup pure maple syrup (or liquid sweetener of choice)
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
3 tablespoons mini dark chocolate chips
1/2 tablespoon coconut oil


  • Step 1

    Line an 8-inch square pan with a piece of parchment paper. Mix the oat flour, protein powder, rice crisp, and salt together in a large bowl.

  • Step 2

    seed butter, maple syrup, and vanilla. Stir well to combine. If the mixture is a bit dry, add a splash of non-dairy milk and mix again.

  • Step 3

    Press into pan and roll out with a pastry roller until smooth. Pop into the freezer.

  • Step 4

    Melt the chocolate chips and coconut oil together in a small pot over low heat. When half of the chips have melted, remove from heat and stir until smooth.

  • Step 5

    After freezing the bars for about 5-10 minutes, remove from freezer and slice into bars. Drizzle with melted chocolate and freeze again until set. Store in the freezer for a week or longer in an air-tight freezer bag or container.
