Dark Chocolate Oat Bars

This dark chocolate oat bar will surely satisfies your sweet tooth and give you the energy that you need for your day.

Not only do you not have to bake these bars but they are also packed with protein. You can use any type of protein powder for this recipe. I used organic plant based chocolate protein powder made by Orgain.

For the chocolate I used organic 73% cacao super dark chocolate. Since cocoa is rich in antioxidants it makes dark chocolate healthy right?

I used a 8 inch brownie dish pan for my dark chocolate oat bars. Using parchment paper will allow an easy removal from the pan.

These bars will last for a couple weeks in your fridge wrapped up.

Ingredients

  • ¼ cup of agave or maple syrup

  • 2 Tbsp of coconut oil
  • 1 tsp of chia seeds
  • ¼ cup of plant milk

Directions

  1. Line an 8 inch pan with parchment paper. Mix the protein powder and plant milk together in a separate bowl and set aside.
  2. Mix the coconut oil, peanut butter, agave syrup, and dark chocolate in a medium pan on low heat until the chocolate melts.
  3. Add the protein powder mixture, chia seeds and oats to the pan. Stir together forming a thick batter.
  4. Transfer the mixture to your square 8 inch pan.
  5. Press oat bar mixture to the pan using a spoon or your hand. Make sure the mixture evenly spread.
  6. After placing the bars in the freezer for 10 minutes remove and slice into bars.
  7. Leftovers will last for up to two weeks in your fridge or in the freezer for a month

Make it Your Own

  • Add a little extra by drizzling peanut butter or melted dark chocolate to the top of your bars.
  • Don’t have a square 8 inch baking pan? Divide your mixture into bite size balls and freeze making dark chocolate oat balls.
  • Substitute peanut butter for another nut butter.
