I love a healthy snack, especially when it doesn't taste "healthy". I have a very busy work schedule and oftentimes find myself unable to get all my meals in for the day. Having this quick snack handy ensures I don't get too far off track during the day. Plus, it gives me my sweet fix. :)


-1 cup oatmeal
-1 cup vanilla protein powder (I like to use casein)
-2 eggs
-5 heaping tablespoons unsweetened cocoa
-2/3 cup water
-1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
-5 packets Stevia


1) Mix all ingredients

2) Spread in small glass baking dish

3) Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes

4) Let cool and cut into squares

I put them in the freezer last night and took one to work today in my cooler. Just had it for a snack - my oh my it's good! I like the casein protein better than whey. It's a finer grain of protein powder, almost flour-like. And with casein's slower burn I tend to believe this recipe is better for us than the quick-absorbing whey. I also like the fact that there isn't any milk. I'm finding myself less lactose tolerant as I get older so this recipe is perfect.

Thanks Kristin! this sounds wonderful:):) This may sound like a silly question, but is cocoa bad to eat during contest prep? If not, is there any substitutefor it in this recipe? maybe chocolate protein powder?

Not a silly question at all Kelly! During contest prep I don't eat these. The reason is 2-fold... (1) I try to stay away from protein powders except for my post-workout shake. I seem to respond to whole food best when trying to lean up for a contest. (2) The olive oil, cocoa, and stevia is unwanted calories for contest prep. I try to be sure everything I'm eating during that time is fueling my bod.

I hope that helps some. Great question!


thanks kristin!i will save these for off season for sure then:):)


After my show in April, my hubby and I are taking a vacation to the beach. I do not want to get stuck eating garbage at the airport two days post competition, and was thinking of carrying these as a snack until we get to our destination. Do they need to be in the freezer or refrigerator?


Hi Sandee! Yes, these should be in the freezer or fridge to stay fresh because of the eggs in them. Enjoy!!!!

With love,

Love these!!! Thanks for posting !!!

With love,


Do you have a macro breakdown of these? They sound great!
