No-Bake Chocolate Orange Chia Protein Bars
Recipe type: Snack
Prep time: 
Total time: 
Yield: 12 bars
  • 3 cups chocolate whey protein (I used Jamie's Lean Body For Her Whey Isolate)
  • ⅔ cup natural peanut butter
  • 1⅓ cup quick oats
  • ¼ cup chia seeds
  • ¼ cup honey (I used Nature's Hollow sugar-free honey)
  • 40 drops orange stevia (I used NuNaturals) *could omit, use vanilla stevia or add 2 tsp orange zest
  • ⅓ cup fresh orange juice
  • ⅓ cup milk (I used unsweetened almond milk), could also use additional orange juice
  1. In a large bowl (or if you have a stand mixer, use that with the dough hook), place in all the ingredients and mix very well. It will be a very stiff dough.
  2. Press mixture into a 9x9 square pan or dish. Cut into 12 bars. From there, place in the fridge, or wrap each bar individually and place in the freezer for grab-n-go.
Tip: Cover the pan with plastic wrap to press it in so it doesn't stick to your hands.
