Are oat bars healthy

These no-bake chocolate oat bars are actually good for you. Made with healthy and clean ingredients, they have the right amount of healthy fats, carbs, and protein.

Can you eat raw oats

Raw oats are very safe to eat. This does not mean you simply grab a handful of oats from the bag and eat them of course, but once added with other ingredients they will absorb moisture and become softer to eat and digest. Oats in oat bars and energy bites do not need to be cooked or soaked.

How to store oat bars

These no-bake chocolate-filled oat bars can be store in an airtight container and kept in the fridge for up to one week.  To freeze, we recommend you individually wrap each bar to prevent them from sticking together and place in a container. When ready to eat, you can remove one bar at a time allow to thaw on your kitchen counter and enjoy.

    Hi Rena, Can I omit the protein powder without causing a change in how the bars turn out? Protein powders make me bloated but would love to try this recipe!

      Hi Dana. Yes, you can. If the consistency is a bit off, add a tablespoon of flaxseed, almond, or coconut flour. But it should be ok
