Ingredients for the No-Bake Double Chocolate Walnuts Bars

  • Walnuts – I love walnuts – they are rich in antioxidants and a fantastic plant source of Omega-3s. Additionally, they add an incredible nutty flavor that you cannot resist!
  • Oats – Oats are a staple in my diet. They are affordable, high in antioxidants, help you feel full for longer, and also promote healthy bacteria in your gut – pretty cool, right?
  • Cocoa powder – It is rich in Polyphenols (naturally occurring antioxidants), which are linked to reduced inflammation, better blood flow, lower blood pressure, improved cholesterol, and blood sugar levels. Cocoa intake can also help you control your weight since cocoa may help by regulating the use of energy, reducing appetite, and increasing the feeling of fullness. 
  • Protein powder – You can use any, but one of my favorite ones is Form Nutrition. If you are based in the US, you can order it from here, or you can also get it within the UK, and Europe.
  • Coconut oil – Coconut oil contains medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs), fatty acids that are quickly absorbed and can increase the number of calories you burn! Another great feature of coconut oil is that it can help reduce hunger. 
  • Date syrup – If you check my other recipes, you can see that date syrup is my preferred sweetener. It 
  • Soy milk – Soy milk is an excellent source of vitamin A, vitamin B, potassium, calcium, & choline. It contains the most protein from all plant-based milk; that’s why it is my preferred option. Of course, you can use any other plant-based milk you have on hand.

No-Bake Double Chocolate Walnuts Bars

Instructions

Blend 70g of oats, 100g of walnuts, and 1 tbsp cocoa into a flour-like mixture. Don’t over-blend it because the walnuts become a buttery consistency.

Then add 60g of protein powder (I used Chocolate Salted Caramel flavor), 20 ml melted coconut oil, 100 ml date syrup, a pinch of salt, and blend again.

Finally, add 2-3 tbsp (~25 ml) milk if the mixture is too dry.

Once everything is well combined, spread evenly on a tray and transfer to the fridge.

For the top layer – mix the cashew and date syrup first, then add 20g of protein powder and 50 ml of plant milk. Mix until you have a thick chocolate mixture.

Then spread on top of the first layer and transfer to the fridge.

After a few hours (once it gets more solid), cut it into 16 pieces.
