Healthy Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars (gluten-free & refined sugar-free)!

A healthy twist on your favorite chocolate chip cookie! Made gluten-free and refined sugar-free!


  • 1/2 c coconut sugar
  • 1 c gluten-free oat flour *see notes for substitutions
  • 32g vanilla protein powder (PEScience 30% off code PBCHOCO|]
  • 1/4 c coconut oil, melted
  • 1 egg, whisked
  • 1 tbsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • pinch sea salt
  • 1/2 sugar-free dark chocolate bar, chopped (about 50g)


  • Preheat oven to 350 F and prepare a 6x6 inch pan with parchment paper and set aside.
  • In a large bowl, stir together the oat flour, protein, coconut sugar, baking powder and salt. Add in the coconut oil (measured after melting) and vanilla. Use a fork or rubber utensil to mix the coconut oil into the dry ingredients. You should have a very dry and crumbly mixture. Add in the lightly whisked egg and continue mixing until a dough forms. Fold in chopped chocolate. If batter is too dry, add another tablespoon of coconut oil.
  • Press the dough into the prepared baking pan and bake for 14-17 minutes. Edges should start to brown. Remove and let cool for 15 minutes before cutting into 9 bars and serving.
  • Enjoy with a glass of almond milk!


Gluten-free oat flour can be replaced with all purpose gluten-free flour or brown rice flour. For DAIRY-FREE bars use a plant based protein and dairy-free chocolate chips


Just finished making my second batch of these. I love them! I did have to add about 3-4 TBSP of nondairy milk to get the dough to come together. I will definitely keep making these


Yay! So glad you like them. What brand of protein powder did you use?


Hi! With what can I replace the protein powder??


Hi Catalina! Try replacing it with 1/3 c oat flour! Let me know how it goes ­čÖé
