Total Time: 7minutes 
Servings: 16 bars
Calories: 147kcal


  • 3 cups rolled oats
  • 1 cup protein powder * See notes
  • 1 cup peanut butter smooth and creamy ** See notes
  • 1/2 cup honey or brown rice syrup *** See notes
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips optional


  • Line an 8 x 8 pan with parchment paper and set aside.
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine your rolled oats and protein powder and mix well. In a microwave safe bowl, add your peanut butter and honey and microwave in 20-second spurts until the peanut butter has softened. Whisk together until smooth and thick.
  • Add the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix until combined. If using chocolate chips, fold them through at the end.
  • Transfer the mixture into the lined pan and press down on top until smooth. Refrigerate the bars for at least an hour to firm up. Once firm, slice into 16 bars.


If your mixture is too thick, add a few tablespoons of water to loosen it.

* Vanilla or plain flavored protein powder. Brown rice protein powder, casein protein powder, and some whey protein powder blends are preferred.

** Almond butter or a nut-free alternative will also work.

*** You can use maple syrup but it won’t be held together as well.

TO STORE: High protein granola bars are best stored in the refrigerator, covered, for up to 4 weeks.

TO FREEZE: Place individually wrapped bars in a ziplock bag and store them in the freezer for up to 6 months.
