Death by chocolate.

One of my favorite flavors in terms of desserts. 

Saying that, I’m not the biggest fan of just any kind of chocolate bar or snack. I enjoy it, but it wouldn’t be my first preference. I prefer it mixed with peanut butter, coating peppermint patties or even better, sandwiched between crackers and marshmallows. However, death by chocolate desserts are another story.

I would wear black boots, a bow tie and chicken dance for the entire Hershey’s family for a slice of death by chocolate cake.

Back in 2009, I went on a 3 day boys weekend to Sydney. As great as the company was, the highlight was the hot (as in the weather- It was really hot that day) date I had…with a slice of cake. You guys, it was hands down the best date I’d ever been on. The cake didn’t talk at all and after letting me ogle at it for several minutes, I stuck my fork and dug in. Death by chocolate?

More like death to chocolate…cake. 

I’ve partnered up with Vitamin Shoppe today as part of today’s recipe. The team at Vitamin Shoppe sent me one epic (protein packed) package and also generously sent me a voucher to use in store. The team at Vitamin Shoppe are rolling out this new initiative- A #proteinpantry. This is essentially a range of protein-packed goodies, including nut butters, baking goods and instant snacks. They must have totally been reading my blog or mind as long term readers know- I love baking and using protein powder in many of my recipes.

I initially thought of using some of the nut butters in a recipe but opted to save those for my spoon toast. Instead, I used their voucher to buy the three protein powder staples I use in my recipes- My favorite paleo protein powder, my favorite vegan protein powder and my favorite casein protein powder

Like most of my recipes which use protein powder on here, I ensure to try it with the above three powders so those who follow a particular dietary lifestyle can still enjoy my recipes with just a few minor adaptations. Today’s recipe is for every chocolate lover out there because it contains chocolate in five ways- Chocolate protein powder, cocoa powder, dairy free chocolate chips, dairy free chocolate chunks and dairy free unsweetened chocolate almond milk. For every chocoholic out there, today’s no-bake death by chocolate protein bar recipe is for you.

Ingredients
  1. 2 cups gluten free oat flour (For the paleo option, use 1 cup coconut flour)
  2. ½ cup coconut flour, sifted (Can sub for almond or more oat flour)
  3. ½ cup protein powder (dietary recommendations listed above in content)
  4. 2 T cocoa powder
  5. 1/4 cup dairy free chocolate chips
  6. 1/4 cup dairy free chocolate chunks
  7. ½ cup nut butter of choice (I used the buff bake peanut butter but can use any)
  8. ½ cup brown rice syrup (sub for maple syrup in the paleo version)**
  9. 1 T + dairy free milk of choice*
Instructions
  1. Line a large baking dish with greased paper and set aside.
  2. In large bowl, combine the flour, protein powder and cocoa powder and mix well. Set aside.
  3. In a microwave safe bowl, combine the nut butter and liquid sweetener and heat until melted. Pour the wet mixture into the dry and mix well- It should be crumbly. Wait until it cools slightly before adding the dairy free chips and chunks and mix well.
  4. Using a spoon, add the dairy free milk of choice one spoonful at a time until a thick, firm batter is formed.
  5. Transfer to lined baking dish and press firmly. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
Notes
  1. * Depending on the flour and protein powder combination, you might need less/more dairy free milk
  2. ** If you don't go the brown rice syrup route, you'll definitely need more dairy free milk
  3. Protein bars are freezer friendly and can also be kept at room temperature.

  1. I am such a chocoholic! Had chocolate yesterday, the day before and every day before that! Nothing’s gonna change! I want to try the protein powder and nut butter you used! 😀

  2. If you ever come to Williamsburg, I’ll take you to the Trellis restaurant, which is widely accepted as the origin of the famous Death By Chocolate cake (and yes, I’ve had it). Google ‘death by chocolate trellis’ for the story. The chef/owner literally wrote a book about it, the cake is that good.

  3. OH MY GOSH, I am obsessed with everything in that box! I tried the Maple Vanilla Almond Butter last night and DIED. SO GOOD.
    In other news my aunt used to own a dessert store called “Death By Chocolate” for realz. Since it runs in my family, I NEED THESE! Pinned!

  4. So I love chocolate, but oddly enough I’m not a chocolate for breakfast fan. There’s so many good chocolate breakfast items out there (chocolate chip muffins, pain au chocolat, etc)…but they just never call to my in the morning. But any other time of the day? Count me in! Good thing dates involving death by chocolate cake are at night instead of in the morning, right?

  5. Yeah I’d prefer not to die by eating anything. The Hubby though is a death by chocolate fan. In fact, he’s a chocolate anything fan, although he shared and fed my new Double Chocolate granola recipe to strangers and it wasn’t done yet, and I very much remember forbidding him from doing so. He told me last night. He’s lucky he’s still alive. 🙂

  6. Any way to find out the nutritonal info of your recipes? I do WW and I won’t make it if I can’t figure out the points.
    Your recipes sound great.
    Thanks.

  7. I tried making these using whey protein since that’s what I had on hand, and it did come out very sticky just as other comments had mentioned. So I tried baking my bars for about 10 minutes at 350 degrees…. problem solved ??They came out fantastic! Probably not as moist as the no bake, but still great.
