You know me, can never have enough protein bar recipes! These No-Bake Chocolate Granola Protein Bars are a great way to use simple ingredients you have on hand. You can also switch up the flavor of protein, granola and dried fruit to make a completely different bar!

Lately, I’ve been playing around with Jamie’s Whey Isolate (Labrada Lean Body for Her), and it goes great in these bars. I used the chocolate whey.  Here’s the link with more info: http://www.labrada.com/store/wheyisolateforher.html

For the granola, I used the Nature’s Path Pumpkin Flax so the nutrition is based on that. But feel free to use whatever granola you like, or try my homemade granola recipe!

My girls also loved these bars. I cut one in half and they shared it.
