Make your own homemade protein bars! These No Bake Healthy Breakfast Bars are quick to make, packed with flavor, easy to change up when you get bored, and packed with great macros.
Start these healthy breakfast bars by adding 10-12 whole pitted dates and 1 tablespoon of coconut flour into a food processor. The coconut flour is what’s going to keep your dates from clumping together.
Process those until your dates end up in tiny pieces. This will usually take a minute or less.
Next, on the stove, melt together 8 tablespoons of peanut or other nut butters and 2 tablespoons of brown rice syrup. You’ll want to keep both of these moving until smooth so that they don’t burn.
Now into a large bowl add 1 1/2 cups of rolled oats, 2 scoops of protein powder, 1 ounce of cashews or other nuts, your processed date mix, and your nut butter mix.
Use a complimenting flavor protein powder! Want chocolate breakfast bars? Use chocolate protein powder. Vanilla? Use vanilla protein powder like we’re using today.
Lightly mix all of those ingredients together.
Add in 3 ounces of unsweetened milk substitute and continue mixing everything together until thoroughly mixed. I find that using a (washed) hand works best for this part!
Last, take out a pan or something that you can press your mix into and line it with parchment paper.
Healthy Breakfast Bars Topping
Pour your mix in, evenly distribute it by pressing down, and top your healthy breakfast bars. Keep in mind, the more you spread them out…the thinner they’ll be. If you want thicker breakfast bars, use a smaller pan.
I’m topping mine today with some fresh blueberries, banana slices, and cashews. Choose whatever toppings you want as long as they fit fit your macros.
Pro tip? Add in some instant caffeine to make them energy bars!
Put them in the fridge or freezer for 20-30 minutes to harden up and cut them into your no bake healthy breakfast bars!
