A healthy homemade protein bar!


  • 1 cup raw almonds
  • 1 cup gluten free rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 12 medjool dates (pits removed)
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil
  • 2 T flax meal
  • 2 T chia seeds
  • 1 T hemp hearts
  • 1/2 tsp almond extract
  • 2 T chocolate chips
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • water


  1. In a food processor , combine the oats, almonds, shredded coconut, chia seeds, flax meal, hemp hearts and sea salt. Pulse for a minute or two.
  2. Then add in the remaining ingredients, except the chocolate chips and water, and mix until a dough starts to form.
  3. Then add water, 1 tablespoon at a time, until the mixture comes together.
  4. Lastly, add the chocolate chips and pulse a couple times until they get mixed in.
  5. Line an 8x8 baking dish with parchment paper. Leave enough paper to stick out the sides.
  6. Press the mixture into the baking dish. Press down VERY hard.
  7. Place the baking dish in the fridge to set. It should take an hour. You can also put it in the freezer for less time.
  8. Once the mixture has set, pull the whole thing out by the sides of the parchment paper. I used a pizza cutter to cut mine into bars.


Recipe Notes

Keep these bars in the fridge. You can also freeze them for longer storage. Enjoy!
