I love a good dessert. Especially one that’s clean and made with just a handful of ingredients. That’s why I love these No-Bake Chocolate Almond Butter Oat Bars!
These guys are my current favorite dessert because they have a little bit of everything! oats as a source of healthy carbs, vanilla protein powder and almond butter for added protein & healthy fats, and chocolate because…well who doesn’t love chocolate?? Each bite is like a little hint if heaven. No joke!!
These are also extremely easy to make! They don’t require any baking on your part–just stir some ingredients together, put them in a baking dish, pour some melted chocolate over it, and you’re all set. I’m always here for an easy way to satisfy my sweet tooth!
1 1/2 cups oats
1/2 cup almond butter
1/4 cup vanilla protein
1/2 cup almond milk
1/3 cup chocolate chips
- In a medium bowl, combine all “base” ingredients, then transfer to a baking dish lined with parchment paper (I used a 9 x 9) and store in the fridge.
- Melt chocolate chips and evenly distribute over the “base” layer.
- Place the dish in the fridge for an hour to set, then remove and slice into squares.
- Store in the fridge and enjoy throughout the week.
