Recipe type: Snack
Prep time: 
Total time: 
Yield: 20 bars
An easy and no-bake bar that's perfect to make ahead, store in the freezer and bring on the go.
For the Bars
  • 4 cups quick oats
  • 1½ cups graham cracker crumbs (I used Kinnikinnick Graham Crumbs for gluten free)
  • 1½ cups whey protein, vanilla (I use Whey Gourmet)
  • 4 Tbsp butter, melted (could also use coconut oil)
  • ⅔ cup sugar-free honey (could use regular honey, nutrition will change)
  • ½ cup salted shelled pistachios, chopped
  • ¼ cup + 2 Tbsp milk (I used unsweetened almond milk)
For the Topping
  • 2 Tbsp chopped pistachios
  • ⅔ cup white chocolate chunks or chips
  • ½ tsp coconut oil (or oil of choice)
  1. In a large bowl, mix together all the dry ingredients (oats, graham crumbs, whey protein, pistachios)
  2. Add in the wet ingredients (butter, honey, milk). You'll want the dough to be stiff but not too wet. It will be sticky.
  3. In a 9x13 rectangular pan, spray it lightly with cooking spray. But in the bars. Using a sheet of plastic wrap over top, press in the mixture evenly. The plastic will help prevent the mixture from sticking to your hands.
  4. Next, make the topping. Melt the white chocolate and oil together in the microwave or on the stove. The oil helps to thin the chocolate. Don't try water or milk trust me it doesn't work.
  5. Once the chocolate is melted, drizzle all over the bars, or spread a thin layer. Sprinkle over the extra chopped pistachios.
  6. Place bars in the fridge until set, about 1 hour.
