Oaty Chocolate Vitality bars

  • Author: Cassie Mendoza-Jones



  • 1 + 1/4 cup oats (I could only find quick organic oats but they worked really well)
  • 2 tbsp almond butter or any nut butter
  • 45 tbsp coconut oil
  • 2 tbsp honey or maple syrup (we didn’t make them too sweet, so feel free to increase the honey or add extra stevia)
  • 2 tbsp raw cacao
  • 2 tbsp chia seeds
  • 34 tbsp protein powder (we used a plain rice protein powder)
  • 3 tbsp goji berries
  • 1 tbsp maca powder
  • Handful of pumpkin seeds or any seeds


  1. Mix everything together really well.
  2. Add a splash of water, a little more nut butter/coconut oil/honey if the mixture is too dry or a little more oats or even some almond meal if the mixture is too wet.
  3. Press down into a brownie tin and refrigerate for 20mins before they’re ready to be sliced and enjoyed.


You could roll them into bliss balls, or even an ice-tray for bite-sized delights.
