Quick No-Bake Chocolate Covered Protein Bars. A vegan, gluten free, high in protein homemade snack that tastes like a chewy fudge brownie! Comes together quickly and couldn’t be easier!


  • 3/4 cup plant protein powder (I used 22 Days Nutrition chocolate flavored protein)
  • 3/4 cup almond flour
  • 12 tablespoons raw cacao powder (depending on flavor preference)
  • 1/2 cup runny almond butter (I LOVE the creamy almond butter from Trader Joe’s)
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup (or any liquid sweetener)
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons coconut oil, melted

Chocolate Drizzle

  • 1/4 cup vegan chocolate chips
  • 1/2 teaspoon coconut oil


  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine dry ingredients – protein powder, almond flour and cacao powder. Next, add all liquid ingredients to a microwave-safe bowl – almond butter, almond milk, maple syrup and coconut oil (or add to a pot over the stove) and warm until coconut oil is melted, about 1 minute.
  2. Pour warmed liquid ingredients into dry and mix until it forms a cookie dough-like texture.
  3. Transfer mixture to a lined 8×6 glass baking dish and pat down to flatten with hands or a spatula.
  4. Freeze for 10 minutes to set. Then remove and cut into squares.
  5. Meanwhile, melt the chocolate chips and coconut oil to drizzle over top the bars.
  6. Store in refrigerator.
  7. Enjoy!
