This Protein Power Bar recipe is derived from a recipe that my cycling coach, Steve gave to me. I added some nuts and almond flour and slightly tweaked the amounts from the original recipe. It is easy to tweak with different protein powder flavors, nuts, and dried fruit.

Protein Power Bars

Protein Power Bars


  • 1 1/2 cups rolled oats
  • 1 cup flax meal
  • 1/2 cup almond flour
  • 3/4 cup chia seed
  • 3 scoops protein powder (vanilla, chocolate, or whatever flavor – low carb!)
  • 2 cups chopped dried apricots (or other dried fruit)
  • 8 ounces chopped nuts of your choice (I used pecans and almonds)
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil (or canola)
  • enough Greek yogurt to be the binder (I used about 12 ounces …a little water can help the process too – don’t make it too watery)
  • pinch of cayenne, cardamom, cinnamon and ginger (if you want)

Once you have everything mixed well, press into a 9 inch x 12 inch pan, refrigerate overnight and boom you’re done. Low glycemic load; protein, carbs, potassium …energy dense bar that will deliver the goods!
