No-Bake Hemp and Chia Protein Bars
Recipe type: Snack
Prep time: 
Total time: 
Yield: 16 bars
  • 3 cups quick oats
  • 1 cup whey protein, vanilla (I used Whey Gourmet Vanilla)
  • ½ cup chia seeds
  • ½ cup hemp seeds
  • ¼ cup ground flax seeds
  • ½ cup honey (I used Nature's Hollow Sugar-Free Honey)
  • ½ cup unsweetened applesauce
  • ½ cup almond butter (could also use peanut butter or sunflower seed butter for nut allergy)
  • ¼ cup coconut oil
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  1. In a large bowl, mix together the oats, whey protein, chia seeds, hemp seeds and flax. Stir until combined.
  2. In the same bowl, add in the almond butter, honey, applesauce, coconut oil and vanilla. Mix until combined.
  3. Mixture will be on the wet side. Pour mixture in a 8x8 pan and allow to set in the fridge until completely cooled. Mixture will harden up once it gets cold.
  4. Remove from fridge, cut into 16 squares. Can be stored in the fridge for just over a week, or place in the freezer and they will last for a few months at least. They taste great directly from the freezer.
