The BEST no-bake homemade Cookie Dough Protein Bar recipe that tastes just like a real cookie! Made with whole grain oat flour, cashew butter, and vanilla plant protein with a silky smooth chocolate coating. Vegan and gluten-free.



For the bars:

  • 1 3/4 cups oats flour (certified gluten-free if necessary)
  • 1/2 cup Plant Fusion LEAN Vanilla Bean Protein Powder (or vanilla plant-based protein powder of choice)
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/3 cup pure maple syrup
  • 1/2 cup cashew butter (can sub almond butter)
  • 1/4 cup almond milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

For the chocolate topping:


  1. Line an 8×8 inch square baking dish with parchment paper going both ways.
  2. Place oat flour, protein powder, salt, and baking soda in a large mixing bowl, stirring to combine.
  3. Add maple syrup, cashew butter, almond milk, and vanilla. Stir until you have a ball of “dough.”
  4. Using wet hands, press evenly into prepared baking dish.
  5. Make chocolate coating by placing chocolate chips, coconut oil, and cashew butter in a medium microwave-safe bowl. Microwave in 20-second intervals for about a minute, or until melted, stirring each time. Pour chocolate over bars and use a spatula to spread evenly.
  6. Freeze for at least 2 hours before slicing into 9-12 bars. Top with plenty of sea salt and devour!
