Almond Joy Protein Bars (Vegan)

Almond Joy Protein Bars.  I love making homemade protein bars.  These almond joy protein bars are my latest creation.  Have you checked the ingredients in store bought protein bars?   Most of them are high in processed sugar and contain synthetic forms of protein.

Not mine.  I prefer to get my protein from whole foods.  That is exactly what you will get with these almond joy snack bars.


Almond Joy Protein Bars - My Whole Food Life


These homemade protein bars are vegan and gluten free.  The freeze very well, so you can make a big batch if you like.   I only used dates as a sweetener.

They also help to bind these bars together.  If you like the flavors of almond joy, you may also like my almond joy energy bites and my almond joy waffles.

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!
