  • 1/2 cup natural peanut butter (just peanuts + salt)
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 1/3 cup honey (use coconut palm syrup if vegan)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup vanilla protein powder*
  • 1 cup oats
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds
  • 2 tablespoons chocolate chips + 1 teaspoon coconut oil
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
  • Optional: 1/3 cup dried tart cherries (or dried fruit of choice)
  • Fancy sea salt, for sprinkling


  1. Heat peanut butter, coconut oil, honey and vanilla in a saucepan over low heat. Mix together until well combined and smooth, then remove from heat and transfer to a large bowl. 
  2. Stir in protein powder until smooth, then fold in oats, chia seeds, coconut and dried cherries, if using. Place in a 8x4 inch loaf pan lined with parchment paper.

  3. Add chocolate chips and coconut in a small saucepan and place over low heat until melted. Drizzle over the tops of the bars. Sprinkle with sea salt.

  4. Place in fridge for 1 hour before removing from pan and cutting into 10 bars or squares. Store bars in fridge tightly wrapped or in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks.

Recipe Notes
