No Bake Oat and Date Protein Bars

This no bake, high protein bar recipe is a great option when we don’t have, or want, to use the oven. 

You’ll need a food processor, 8×8 pan, parchment paper is optional.


  • Oats, 1/2 cup
  • Protein Powder, chocolate or vanilla, 1 scoop
  • Coconut Flakes, 1/2 cup
  • Peanut butter (or nut-butter alternative), 1/2 cup
  • Dates, pitted, 5
  • 1/4-1/2 cup water
  • Optional toppers (dark chocolate chips, hemp seeds, walnuts are great)


  1. Add oats, protein powder, coconut flakes and process until blended
  2. Add in peanut butter, pitted dates, 1/4 cup water, and process until blended.
  3. Scrape down ingredients on sides of food processor, and blend until you have a “cookie dough” consistency.  Add a little water at a time and re-blend if needed.
  4. Take out the “dough” and place it in the square pan, then press it down evenly with the bottom of a measuring cup. (use parchment paper here if desired)
  5. Add toppers if you choose.
  6. Refrigerate for 1-2 hours, and cut into 4 bars.
  7. They will keep in the refrigerator for 1 week.

Pro Tip- put one in the microwave for 30 seconds before eating for a warm, satisfying treat that pairs nicely with a glass of almond milk!
