Crispy Chocolate Coconut Protein Bars

Chocolate Coconut Protein Bars That Seriously Taste Like a Candy Bar

The following post was originally featured on Fitnessista and written by Gina H., who is part of POPSUGAR Select Fitness.

Yesterday afternoon I decided to make these protein bars. I've been trying to get back in the swing of normal eating — I certainly enjoyed the holiday cheer — and ended up making something that tastes exactly like a candy bar. It wasn't purely intentional — I just mixed some ingredients in a bowl, and before you knew it I was screaming "yes!" and drizzling chocolate with a creepy smile on my face.

Basically these taste like a healthy Nestle Crunch bar. There are no rice crispies, but the coconut and oats give them an awesome crunchy texture. It's kind of hard to believe that you're getting a dose of healthy fats, protein, and smart carbs in each glorious serving.

These are sweetened with a little bit of honey and sit in the fridge to set for an hour or so.

Just top with some chocolate drizzle, and store in the fridge.

Here's the recipe if you'd like to give it a try!

Crispy Chocolate Coconut Protein Bars

From Fitnessista


For the chocolate drizzle:

Melt 1/4 cup dark chocolate chips with 1 tablespoon coconut oil either in a double boiler or in the microwave at 20-second intervals. Scoop the mixture into a plastic bag and cut off the end. Drizzle the chocolate over the bars before placing back in the fridge to harden.

Crispy Chocolate Coconut Protein Bars


  1. 1/2 cup oats
  2. 1/2 cup chocolate protein powder
  3. 1/2 cup shredded unsweetened coconut
  4. Pinch of sea salt
  5. 1/4 cup coconut oil
  6. 1/3 cup creamy unsalted almond butter
  7. 1 tablespoon honey


  1. In a large bowl, thoroughly combine all ingredients.
  2. Line a small baking dish (around 8-by-8 works well) with parchment paper or plastic wrap.
  3. Press the mixture into the bag, and place in the fridge to harden for about 1 hour.
  4. Cut into bars and enjoy. Store covered in the fridge.
