For 12 bars

  • 45 g of whey protein
  • 90 g of peanut butter
  • 100 g of honey
  • 50 g of coconut flour
  • 50 g of rolled oats
  • 2 tablespoons of hazelnut milk, soy milk or almond milk

Materials Needed

  • Bowl
  • Scale weighs food
  • Wooden spoon
  • Parchment paper or cling film
  • Knife


  1. In a bowl, collect the honey and peanut butter along with the oat flakes: place the bowl in the microwave and heat for 1 and a half minutes at maximum power.

As an alternative to the microwave
Those who do not have a microwave can cook the mixture in a saucepan, continuing to stir for about 5 minutes.

  1. At this point, combine the protein powder (hazelnut taste), the coconut flour and mix to obtain a fairly firm mixture, workable with your hands: the ideal consistency must be similar to that of a hard shortcrust pastry. If the dough is too thick, add one or two tablespoons of almond milk or hazelnut milk.

Please note:
The mixture can be hot: it is advisable to wait 5 minutes before working the dough with your hands to avoid burning yourself.
Note that as the mixture cools, it will tend to thicken and harden.

  1. Spread the mixture on a sheet of baking paper and shape with your hands until you get a long and narrow rectangle, a couple of cm thick.
  2. Level the strip of dough with your hands, possibly with the help of a rolling pin.
  3. Wrap the protein dough in a sheet of parchment paper or cling film, then place in the fridge for half an hour.
  4. After the necessary time, proceed with the preparation of the bars. Cut the dough strip into 12 pieces.
  5. Protein bars can be kept for about ten days in an airtight tray. For a chocolate version, you can partially dip the bars in melted chocolate or add chopped dark chocolate directly to the dough.

Alice's comment - PersonalCooker

The advantages of consuming these bars? We certainly give strength to our muscles, which need to reinvigorate themselves after exertion (it is recommended to consume them half an hour after training), we choose all healthy ingredients and, for sure, we save some money (compared to buying packaged protein bars)!
