Choco-Nut Protein Bars


We’ve got another recipe from our Nutritional Therapist Steph... No-Bake Choco-Nut Protein Bars.


These bars are so quick easy to whip up, and will satisfy any chocolate craving!


  • High in protein and slow-release carbohydrates for blood sugar and energy balance.

  • Source of monounsaturated fats (healthy fats), for heart and cardiovascular health.

  • Source of magnesium for muscle health.

You’ll need:

  • 4 heaped tbsp any type of nut butter (I used peanut)

  • 3 tbsp honey or brown rice syrup

  • 100g quality dark chocolate (70%+ cocoa solids), chopped into very small pieces

  • 50g desiccated coconut (unsweetened)

  • 200g oats

  • 100g mixed finely chopped nuts and seeds (hazelnut, almond, pumpkin and chia here)

  • 2 scoops of protein (vanilla or chocolate)

  • 100ml milk (any type)

Directions:

  • Heat the nut butter and honey so it’s runny.

  • Combine the melted nut butter and honey with everything else in a large bowl, mix and then knead thoroughly.

  • Push down into a baking paper-lined tray (10”x8”).

  • Make sure everything is packed firmly - otherwise it’ll break up when you cut it.

  • Refrigerate for at least 2 hours or freeze until very firm, before cutting into 16 squares.

  • Store in the fridge or freezer in an airtight box.

Enjoy with a tea or coffee for a mid-morning or mid-afternoon pick-me-up. Or for a pre or post-workout snack.
