5-Minute Homemade Energy Bars!

Homemade Energy Bar Recipe

Makes 5 bars


  • 3/4 cup quick rolled oats, gluten free* if need be
  • 1/4 cup crunchy almond butter*, smooth works too
  • 1/4 cup chia seeds*
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup*
  • 1 scoop vanilla protein powder*
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon*
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract*
  • 1 tablespoon maca powder*
  • 1/4 cup water


1. Place all ingredients in food processor, and pulse until well blended. The batter should be sticky and easy to press together and form into individual bars.

2. Form into bars and place in fridge for 30 minutes to set. If planning to keep for longer than 4 days, store in freezer.

Recipe Note:The type of protein powder you use will affect how the recipe turns out. I find the fewer ingredients the better, and taste wise, a powder that doesn’t have added veggies in the powder works better. If you don’t add protein powder, you may need a little less water.
