“I notice a lot of protein bar recipes use peanut butter or add lots of extra ingredients. I wanted a simpler protein bar recipe that would be easy to add extra ingredients or flavors if one so desired, so I came up with this. The nice thing about this recipe is its flavor versatility. Before you add the tapioca flour you can mix in any flavoring you want (so far I have tried mint and coconut-rum, both were tasty).”
16 bars

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. 1. Line a 9x13 inch pan with parchment paper or wax paper.
  2. 2. Melt the chocolate chips until just melted, not hot. An easy way to do this without burning them is to put the chips in a ceramic coffee cup and sit it on the hot plate of your coffee maker.
  3. 3. Combine the protein powder and quick oats in a mixing bowl. Add the skim milk and mix.
  4. 4. Pour the melted chocolate in and mix again.
  5. 5. Add the tapioca flour and mix thoroughly. Batter should be very thick.
  6. 6. Place the batter in the middle of the pan. Wet your finger with water and use them to spread the mixture evenly over the bottom of the pan.
  7. 7. Chill the bars in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour to chill. Use a knife dipped in hot water to cut into 16 bars.
  8. 8. Wrap the bars and store them in the fridge or freezer. The bars still remain a little chewy even when frozen.
