I adore making snacks and treats that are delicious, nutrient-rich, simple to make, and easy to take on the go to fuel my body and fit into my busy lifestyle. Since I always keep homemade coconut butter, organic rolled oats, gluten free grains, nuts, seeds and dried fruits in my pantry, I decided to put them together to make a yummy homemade chocolate coconut protein bar with dried blueberries, dates and currants. These no bake bars are chewy, creamy goodness that is loaded with my favorite superfoods that will help you stay energized and radiant!
These homemade chocolate coconut protein bars are the perfect summer treat because you can whip up a batch in minutes and pop them in the refrigerator to enjoy whenever you want. During the summer all I want to do is make lots of healing foods recipes that don’t involve turning on the stove or oven. With all the gorgeous warm weather and sunshine who has time to be standing over a hot stove cooking? I use this extra time to go roller blading at the beach, eat out at my favorite restaurants, grill outdoors, go shopping at the farmer’s markets and see all the latest movies like Jurassic World. By the way this movie rocked!
These bars are also wonderful to eat for a quick and satisfying breakfast on the go. Pair them with my superfoods cinnamon coffee latte or a cup of green tea for a great start in the morning. I would much rather have these bars then eat some sugary processed cereal or fast food breakfast that is full of preservatives and unhealthy ingredients that will spike your blood sugar, make you tired and set you up for cravings more refined sugar and carbs later in the day.
In today’s recipe I used an awesome sustained energy cereal blend and added hemp protein powder, essential oil, raw honey, vanilla extract, cinnamon and my recipe for chocolate honey coconut butter. This tasty gluten-free cereal has gluten-free rolled oats, pumpkin seeds, chia seeds, amaranth seeds, quinoa seeds, ramon seeds, dates, dried blueberries and currants. This fantastic cereal can be used hot or cold and it provides 6 grams of plant protein, 6 grams of fiber, and 1200 mg omega-3 fats with no refined sugar or gmo’s.
Want a bite?
If you want to try this yummy blend you can buy it on Amazon here. If not substitute 1½ cups organic rolled oats, ¼ cup freeze dried blueberries, and 2 chopped pitted dates in the recipe.
I hope today’s recipe for homemade chocolate coconut protein bars will inspire you to start creating your own homemade bars so you can stay energized, satisfied and feeling amazing all summer long!

Chocolate Coconut Protein Bars Recipe
Gluten-Free, Vegetarian, Dairy-Free, Refined Sugar-Free
- 1 ½ cups cereal blend or gluten-free organic rolled oats
- 1 scoop hemp protein powder (I used this brand)
- ¼ teaspoon Himalayan pink salt
- ¼ teaspoon Ceylon cinnamon (I used this brand)
- ¼ cup hemp seeds (I used this brand)
- ¼ cup freeze dried organic blueberries (optional use only if making the recipe with the oats)
- 2 pitted dried dates chopped into small pieces (optional use only if making the recipe with the oats)
- ¾ cup chocolate coconut butter (here’s my recipe or you can buy it on Amazon)
- 1-2 tablespoons raw honey
- 2 tablespoons filtered water
- 2 ½ teaspoons pure organic vanilla extract
- 3 drops dōTERRA wild orange essential oil (click here to get the oil)-optional
- 1 organic dark chocolate bar-optional (melt before drizzling on the bars)
1. Line an 8 x 8 baking pan with parchment paper and set aside.
2. In a medium bowl, mix together cereal blend or rolled oats, hemp protein powder, pink salt, Ceylon cinnamon and hemp seeds. If using dried blueberries and dates with the rolled oats add them in and stir well.
3. Add chocolate coconut butter, 1 tablespoon of honey, the filtered water, vanilla extract and wild orange essential oil if using into the bowl and blend together until the mixture holds together when pressed between two fingers. Taste bars and add the remaining tablespoon of honey if you want a sweeter bar.
4. Press bar dough evenly into your prepared baking pan and cover the pan with foil. Place the bars into the refrigerator and chill until firm for around 1 hour. Pull chilled bars along with the parchment paper attached out of the pan and cut into even sized bars with a sharp knife. Drizzle with the melted dark chocolate bar if using and enjoy a bar immediately or remove the parchment paper and place all the bars into an airtight container in the refrigerator until you want to eat one. Try the dark chocolate for a more decadent version if you’re big chocolate lover.

Do You Know Your Body’s Most Important Weight Loss Secret?
By J. Davis III
Tags: HEALING | HEALTHY FATS | REMEDIES
Recently, Doctor of Naturopathy, weight-loss expert and best-selling Amazon author Liz Swann Miller, creator of the Red Smoothie Detox Factor, revealed 2 of the secrets to easy, steady weight loss. Secrets the big food corporations do their best to hide from us.
Secret #1: Enjoy real food. Don’t fall for the lie that you have to deprive yourself to lose weight.
Secret #2: stop eating out. You will automatically eat less without even noticing.
Then start detoxing your body with tasty, nourishing smoothies that are just as easy on your wallet as they are easy to make.
Because a single day of enjoying Liz’ smoothies demonstrated the radical power of her superfood-packed red smoothies to make me feel incredibly good.
Now prepare yourself for one of the biggest weight loss secrets there is. A secret that, when you use it properly, can transform your body and your health.
You probably know most of us eat too much processed food. What you may not know is that it’s full of toxic chemicals and substandard, dirt-cheap ingredients designed to make you eat more…and force you to gain weight.
Here’s how it works...
“That stuff is just a lot of calories your body can’t use,” Liz told me, “Some are poison. And all these foods are stripped of the anti-oxidants and anti-inflammatories that help your body detox. The result? Your body expends huge amounts of calories to eliminate some toxins—the rest, it stores in your fat to protect you. This is why most people are hungry all the time. They’re not getting energy they need.”
“So… what’s going on with me? Why am I losing weight but not going hungry?”
Liz paused, then dropped the bombshell.
Your body is designed to burn fat. You just have to let it.
“What? I thought we were designed to store fat?!?” We were Skyping and I was practically shouting. Then I heard Liz say…
What good is a fat reserve if you can’t burn it?
Liz continued: “You’re drinking smoothies packed with phytonutrients, anti-oxidants and anti-inflammatories that pull toxins out of you like a tractor beam. Allowing your body to burn those toxin-filled fat stores… and releasing tremendous amounts of stored energy.”
So that’s why I’m losing weight without going hungry.
Watch Liz’ free presentation. It’s packed with revolutionary weight loss information—information that works. Because it’s based on how nature works.
