Double Chocolate Protein Bars

Nutty and chocolaty, these gluten-free energy bars will keep you satisfied during busy days.
Three double chocolate protein bars.
  • Makes 8 servings
  • Prep Time 15 minutes
  • Cook Time 5 minutes


  • 1/2 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • 1 cup natural chunky almond or peanut butter
  • 2–3 tbs. honey, plus more to taste if desired
  • 1 1/4 cup Life Time chocolate whey protein powder 
  • 2 cups gluten-free oats
  • Optional: Melted 80 percent or higher dark chocolate for drizzle


In a medium pot, combine the almond milk, nut butter, and honey over low heat. Stir just until all of the ingredients are well combined and warmed through. Add the protein powder and oats. Stir well to combine. (If the mixture is too thick to stir, slowly add more almond milk to thin.)
Grease an 8×8 pan and press the mixture evenly into the pan. Drizzle with dark chocolate if desired.
Allow the bars to cool completely before cutting them into squares. Seal the bars in an airtight container and store them at a moderate room temperature for up to a week.
