The ultimate HEALTHY meets FUN snack full of oats, peanut butter (nut-free option!), chocolate chips, and chocolate candies. Gluten-free, high protein, and easy to prep in one bowl and 10 minutes!




  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F and line an 8×8” pan with parchment paper or grease.
  2. In a large bowl, stir together oats, protein powder, chia seeds, and salt.
  3. Add in peanut butter, sweetened condensed coconut milk, and vanilla.
  4. Mix until evenly combined and sticky.
  5. Fold in chocolate chips and candies.
  6. Press the mixture firmly into the prepared pan.
  7. Bake for 25-28 minutes. Cool completely before slicing (or even chill first to minimize crumbles).
