Chocolate! I whole heartily believe that human beings should have chocolate every single day in order to live a happy and healthy life!

If you are ever unsure how to use your chia seeds or quinoa, then this is the perfect recipe for you. Forget quinoa for dinner. Quinoa is much better enjoy with chocolate for dessert.

For this recipe I made my own protein chocolate by mixing together chocolate protein powder, unsweetened dark cocoa powder, coconut oil and water thus making it SUGAR FREE!




I used PEScience Select Gourmet Vanilla Protein Powder in the seed base of the bark and PEScience Select Chocolate Frosted Cupcake for the dark chocolate. You can get 30% off all PEScience products by using code PBCHOCO.

  • Very cool looking recipe. They remind me of those delicious chocolate flourentine cookies, except loaded with protein. Love the idea of mixing in protein powder with coconut oil and cocoa powder. Have only done quinoa in salads, but these look really good. Much better than most protein bars you see for sale.
