Almond Butter Protein Bars (Vegan)

Almond Butter Protein Bars.  Have I told you how much I love almond butter?  I eat it almost daily.  One of my favorite healthy sweet snacks is a date stuffed with almond butter.

If you haven’t tried it yet, you really should.  Totally curbs a sweet tooth!  So I created these almond butter protein bars with that snack in mind.

These would be a great pre/post workout snack.  Most of the protein shakes on the market are full of unwanted ingredients or too much processed sugar.

Why not try these instead?  They are filled with wholesome ingredients.  They can be made in minutes and you could enjoy one with my Energizing Green Juice.

Prep Time 20 min Serves 10 bars     adjust servings



  1. In the food processor or Vitamix, grind the oats into a course consistency. 
  2. Add the remaining ingredients and mix until a sticky dough is formed. 
  3. From here, you can roll them into balls or make them into bars like I did.  I used an 8 x 8 pan, but I think a slightly smaller pan would work better.  If you use a pan, line it with parchment leaving enough room to come out the sides.  That way they will be easy to pull out and cut. 
  4. I used a pizza cutter to cut mine. 
  5. Let them chill in the fridge for about 30 minutes to an hour.  That’s it.  I cut mine into squares and got about 10 in my batch.  Enjoy!

  1. These sound just delicious! I wonder, since I need to be ultra cautious on the fats, if I could sub maybe half the almond butter for??? could you reccomend anything? Thank you- so much!
      1. I would add a few more dates and a drop or two of water if you need for consistency. If you are going to cut out almond butter you will need to substitute something else "wet" to keep it moist enough to *stick* together.
    1. Yes I do! I don't have a recipe, but I make it in the same manner as I do my peanut butter. It just takes about 10 minutes instead of the 5 minutes it takes for the peanut butter.
  2. This looks so yummy! I love my chia seeds. I recently bought ground chia seeds, but haven't tried them yet. Have you ever used them? Any thoughts on trying them in this recipe? Thanks so much for all your delicious recipes!
  3. These sound yummy, super-nutrient packed! I've just been making bunches of batches lately of my Orange Almond Biscotti Balls, which are my favorite thing to do with almonds, and you might like too :) I'm off to run, good night!
  4. Thanks for all the suggestions! I'm doing the Swank ms diet (successfully too!) which is VERY low in both sat. and unsat. fats, so my three tablespoons alloted daily, really adds up FAST. Appreciate your guidance & can't wait to try these! :)
  5. I just found this site a few days ago. I have been craving some real food! I juiced for 30 days, and now try to follow a gluten free-vegan diet for undiagnosed health issues. I was so overwhelmed at first, now I am just bored with all fruits and vegetables. I am beyond happy to have found your fantastic site! I made two batches of these and they are freezing. One batch I made I added my almond milk pulp to and the other inspired by the earlier reader... I added puffed millet. They are both great! Do you refrigerate these after the1/2 hr. in the freezer for a longer life? Thanks a million for this site. I love it!
  6. I found your recipe on Pinterest and decided to try it. They turned out so good! They're not as firm as I hoped, but very delicious! It's like a healthy candy bar! I love almond butter too!
  7. Hum...I wonder if I cold just make these with a cup of chopped nuts and not the rolled oats. We don't eat grains that haven't been properly soaked if we can avoid it. But, it looks like a yummy recipe!
  8. Approx. how many calories for 1 bar? I am on the Shred diet and we can have 100 and 150 calorie snacks.
  9. Any chance chia seeds taste like some sort of cheese if they get heated? I made something like this but with peanut butter bc my kids have tree but allergies and it has a blue cheese after taste. I can't figure out what would have made it taste like that. I used pb, chia seeds, coconut flakes, choc chips, oats, dried bananas and coconut oil. Thanks!
    1. I have mostly used chia seeds in uncooked dishes. I have never heard of them having a cheesy taste when cooked. I have made faux cheese sauces out of cashews, but never chia seeds. I can assure you that these do not have a cheesy aftertaste and they are not cooked anyway.
  10. These are so up my ally! I adore almond butter and love making energy balls or bars with yummy sweet dates. Thanks for a great looking recipe, can't wait to try them! -Dana
