Power Protein Bars (No bake recipe!)

August 27, 2013 2 min read

If you suffer from a mouth full of Sweet Teeth like I do, you have probably tried every chocolate-y protein bar out there and either been disappointed in the taste or disturbed by the long-winded list of unnecessary ingredients. As a previous dessert caterer (that's super funny, right?), I knew it was time to take matters into my own hands and limit the amount of money I was shelling out for a family of five who all seemed to prefer different brands and flavors. I wanted a quick and easy recipe and my business partner and I wanted something we could recommend to our clients over those "halo" protein bars that in fact aren't healthy at all. Could we look beyond cheap soy protein isolate, please?! So we prioritized ingredients based on their ability to provide what we felt were absolute requirements:

>sustained energy

>high protein and nutrients

>fill power


>workout recovery fuel

>quick & easy

Portability was important as we envisioned sweaty gym bag pockets and regions of suitcase-sized purses that accumulated a sliding scale of necessities and I-Will-Never-Call-You business cards.  Mass production was also key. We wanted to be able to double or triple this recipe to stock the freezer, pack in lunches and store at the office. And as far as flavor goes, it would be best to appeal to the masses in a one kind fits all approach. This has ALL the good stuff. There are countless variations of this type of bar but we love the combination of these ingredients for the protein, fiber, Omega-3's, antioxidants, healthy fats, vitamins, minerals and natural energy they provide.

No Bake Power Protein Barspowerprotein


1 cup rolled oats 2/3 cup unsweetened thick cut coconut 1/3 cup raw honey, real maple syrup or blackstrap molasses 1/2 cup nut butter 1/2 cup ground flax meal 1/2 cup dark/bittersweet chocolate chips 1 tsp unrefined coconut oil 1 tsp pure vanilla Optional: 2 tbs whey protein powder 1 tbs chia seeds


Combine all ingredients in a large bowl. stir bowl Spread and press firmly into an 8"x 8" pan (I don't seem to use the entire pan unless I double the recipe as I like them thick). Or chill dough for at least 30 minutes and scoop rounded tablespoons into balls and stack in an airtight container in the fridge.


power protein bars The recipe makes about 8 regular-sized bars or two dozen bites. But my guess is you'll want to the eat the first batch in one sitting (yes, it's that good), so take my advice and double it up! Eat with purpose. xo, Lonni

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 4-6 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.


We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.

Returns & Exchanges

BodyRock Equipment

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number. Refunds will be issued when the equipment is received back to the BodyRock warehouse, minus the original cost of shipping, and the customer is responsible for the costs of return shipping. To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.

Digital Products

We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.
