These bars are a great snack to prep on a Sunday and enjoy throughout the week. They’re perfect for a pre-workout protein hit or a mid-afternoon treat. 

Time to cook: 35 minutes 

Makes: 8


For the dry mixture

  • ½ cup (50g) rolled oats, or quinoa flakes for gluten-free 
  • ½ cup (80g) protein powder of choice – we use the JSHealth Protein + Probiotics blends
  • ¼ cup (35g) sunflower seeds, or pumpkin seeds
  • 3 tbsp chia seeds
  • ½ cup (80g) almonds, chopped 
  • ¼ cup (25g) shredded coconut
  • ¼ cup (20g) psyllium husk, or flaxseed meal
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • sea salt, a pinch 

For the wet mixture

  • 1 banana, ripe & mashed
  • 2 tbsp almond or peanut butter
  • ¼ cup (60ml) rice malt syrup, or maple syrup
  • 1 tbsp almond milk

For the topping:

  • 50g (1.7oz) dark chocolate, melted, optional


  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C or 350°F. Line a loaf tin with baking paper.
  2. Combine the dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl. 
  3. In a separate bowl, whisk the wet ingredients until they’re combined.
  4. Add the dry ingredients to the wet mixture and stir well.
  5. Pour the batter into the prepared tin and press down firmly. Bake for 20–25 minutes or until cooked through and golden brown. Allow to cool slightly. Drizzle with melted chocolate, if using, and slice into bars. Store in an airtight container in the fridge for a week.
