No Bake Brownie Energy Bars

There really aren’t enough companies out there putting out truly healthy, low carb energy bars. It’s a huge hole in the market and I can’t understand why someone isn’t filling that void. Hmmm, maybe that will be my next business move? Well, these no bake brownie bars are a start and I am giving you the recipe right here!


3/4 cup almond butter

1/2 cup avocado oil

2/3 cup cocoa powder

1/3 cup unflavoured protein powder (chocolate would work too)

Sweetener equivalent to 1/2 cup sugar

1 tsp vanilla extract

2 cups almond flour (make sure it’s fine grind)

1/2 cup chopped walnuts or pecans

2 to 5 tbsp water water

2 ounces sugar-free dark chocolate, melted (optional)


Line an 8×8 square baking pan with parchment or waxed paper.

In a large bowl, combine almond butter and avocado oil. Stir well to combine. Add cocoa powder, protein powder, sweetener, vanilla extract, almond flour, and chopped nuts. Stir well to combine.

Add water one tablespoon at a time until mixture resembles a stiff, cohesive dough. Press evenly into prepared pan. To really smooth the top, add another layer of parchment or waxed paper and press firmly into pan with a flat-bottomed glass or measuring cup.

Cut into squares or long bars.

    I don’t have avocado oil, would coconut oil work?

    I make these all the time and they keep me on track and give me something to eat when my options are low.. ie: when I forgot to take my lunch to work. I sub out pb for the almond butter occasionally, and use coconut oil instead of avocado oil which I don’t have. Almond flavoring goes nicely in these too. The only problem I have is that if these aren’t refrigerated, they get very soft. Should I be cutting back on the amount of coconut oil??
