"No Bake" Nutella Protein Bars

Does anyone else think that store bought protein bars taste like sugary cardboard?
Ugh. I hate them!
Here is a quick and easy recipe that I found after following a fellow Instagrammer @TastyHealth. You can also find them on her blog here


1 cup rolled oats
1 scoop 100% Whey vanilla or chocolate
1/2 tbsp cocoa
1 tbsp almond or hazelnut butter
1 tsp chia seeds or flax seeds (or whatever other seeds)
1-1.5 tbsp water

  1. Place all ingredients in a bowl. Start with 1 tablespoon water and add as needed.
  2. Mix all ingredients together with your hands until you have a firm dough. Divide into 2 pieces and shape into bars. 
  3. Wrap in aluminum foil and store in the fridge until needed.
(NOTE:  Use a little water as possible to prevent overly sticky bars)


Here are Tasty Health's nutritional facts...

Nutritional information per serving (2 small or 1 large bar):
377 calories
32g protein
27g carbohydrates
14g fat

These are soooo good! If you are a protein bar lover, you have to give these a try! And put your own "spin" on them. I found a organic chocolate peanut spread at my local whole foods store that I will use next time to cut the calories and fat even more!

Thanks for reading!
