  • 3/4 cup Quick Oats plus 2 tablespoons
  • 1/4 cup Brown Sugar
  • 3 tablespoons Granulated Sugar
  • 3 tablespoons Chocolate Protein Powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon Salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon Cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup Slivered Almonds
  • 1/2 cup Milk Chocolate Chips
  • 1/2 teaspoon Pure Vanilla Extract
  • 3 tablespoons Almond Butter
  • 3 tablespoons Honey
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons Coconut Oil
  • 2 tablespoons Unsweetened Apple Sauce


  • Preheat you oven to 350°F and line a small baking dish (mine was 8x6) with parchment paper.
  • In a large bowl, combine the oats, brown sugar, granulated sugar, protein powder, salt, cinnamon, slivered almonds and milk chocolate chips. Toss to mix evenly.
  • In a small bowl, melt the almond butter, honey and coconut oil in the microwave. Stir in the vanilla and apple sauce.
  • Add the almond butter mixture into the oat mixture and mix until well combined. I find using your hands is the easiest.
  • Pour the mixture into the prepared baking dish, really pressing down to make sure the mixture is press up all against the sides and compacted as well as possible
  • Bake until the sides just start to pull away and darken, about 33-35 minutes .
  • Let cool completely before lifting the parchment out of the pan and slicing.
  • Bars can be kept at room temperature for 4-5 days, and then stored in the refrigerator or freezer.


You can get away with 1 tbsp less of brown/granulated sugar is you likes a less sweet and less “commercial” tasting bar. I preferred it with the recommended amount.
The bars will be VERY soft and appear undercooked when done. They set up A LOT once cooling.
