It’s easy to make Chocolate Protein Bars right at home in just 15 minutes!


Units Scale
  • 1 1/2 cups almond flour
  • 1/2 cup protein powder
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • pinch of salt
  • 3/4 cup almond butter (can sub peanut butter, cashew butter etc.)
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 12 tsp almond milk, as needed
  • 4 oz 70% dark chocolate
  • 1 tbsp refined coconut oil


  1. Mix the almond flour, protein powder, cocoa powder and salt together in a large bowl. Set aside.
  2. Mix the almond butter, maple syrup and vanilla extract together in a separate bowl.
  3. Add the wet ingredients to the bowl of dry ingredients and mix them together. (It’s easiest to start mixing with a spoon, and then switch to mixing with your hands!)
  4. If the dough feels a little dry, add 1-2 teaspoons of almond milk to the dough and continue to mix.
  5. Press the dough evenly into an 8×8 inch pan lined with parchment paper.
  6. Melt the dark chocolate and coconut oil together in a microwave-safe bowl and pour on top of the bars. (make sure to move the pan around after adding the chocolate so the chocolate spreads out evenly.)
  7. Place in the fridge to set for at least 3 hours or overnight then cut into bars.
  8. Store in the fridge.
