Maintaining a healthy lifestyle is much easier when you always have healthy snacks on hand. This way, you'll never be at a loss when you crave something tasty or when your body signals that it could use some extra energy.

Make these no-bake chocolate protein bars over the weekend and you'll have a healthy snack for the next few days.

The recipe is really easy, so let's get started right away!

Ingredients for 6 bars

  • 10 dates
  • 75 grams of unsalted mixed nuts
  • 1 scoop of Orangefit Vanilla or Chocolate Protein
  • 2 teaspoons of raw cocoa powder
  • 1 tablespoon of seed mix (like a mix of flax and chia seeds)
  • 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon
  • pinch of salt
  • If necessary: a splash of water or almond milk.


  1. Let the pitted dates soak in hot water for 10 minutes.

  2. Then, drain well and add them along with the rest of the ingredients to a food processor.

  3. Blend at high speed until it forms a compact mixture. It's okay if there are some small pieces remaining, as they give a nice texture, but try to avoid large chunks of dates.

  4. It's important that the 'dough' is well compacted. You can test this by kneading everything together into a ball. Does it stick together well? Then you can press the protein bars into the mold. If it's too crumbly, add a splash of water or almond milk and blend again.

  5. Line a shallow baking dish with parchment paper and transfer the 'dough' into it. Use your fingers to press it down to form a layer about 1 cm thick.

  6. Place it in the refrigerator for about an hour.

  7. Then, lift the parchment paper out of the dish and place it on a flat surface. Use a knife to cut 6 protein bars from the mixture.

  8. Store in a Tupperware container in the refrigerator to keep the chocolate protein bars fresh and delicious for longer.

  9. Done!
