An up-close shot of a Samoa cookie protein bar.

What you need to make Samoa cookie protein bars:

Coconut flakes: The coconut flakes get mixed with the maple syrup to create the filling.

Maple Syrup: You can sub any sticky sweetener. To make these lower in sugar, you can use a monk fruit sweetened maple syrup!

Almond Butter: Any nut or seed butter will work, but the coconut almond combination is SO yummy.

Chocolate chips: I always use Hu Kitchen to keep my recipes refined sugar free. Use code “danishealthyeats” for a discount on any order.

Oat flour: You can use store-bought or homemade!

Coconut Flour: I haven’t tested any subs for this. This creates a slightly crunchy cookie base that is so good!

Protein Powder: This is optional. You can sub more oat flour, however I love adding protein to my treats to help balance blood sugar and keep me satiated! I highly recommend using a protein powder that you really like the flavor of. You can use code “amb-dani” for a discount on my favorite powder!

Coconut oil: Any oil will work.

How to make the bars:

  1. Combine the cookie base ingredients and press into a lined loaf pan.
  2. Bake and then let cool.
  3. Combine the filling ingredients and spread over the cooled base.
  4. Melt the chocolate chips and spread evenly over the filling.
  5. Place in the freezer to firm up for a few hours before cutting in bars and enjoying.

How do you store the Samoa cookie protein bars?

Store them in an air-tight container in the freezer and let them thaw a few minutes before enjoying!
