No Bake Chocolate Oatmeal Brownies

I have explained before that I am not a baker. So if I can find a dessert recipe that doesn’t need baking, I’m on it! I found this recipe and adapted it slightly.


  • 1 cup applesauce
  • 1/2 cup almond milk
  • 2 cups oats
  • 1/2 cup sugar substitute (I used Stevia)
  • 3 Tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon coconut oil
  • 1 scoop of protein powder (I used Arbonne)
  • Optional: chocolate chips!


1. Combine oil, almond milk, sugar substitute, cocoa powder, protein powder and applesauce in a saucepan over medium heat, stirring to combine.

2. Once the mixture is boiling, let it continue to boil for about two more minutes then combine the mixture with the oats and pour into a greased pan.

3. Cover and let cool either in the freezer for a few hours or in the refrigerator overnight. Once cooled, cut into bars and enjoy!

  1. Love this recipe πŸ™‚

  2. Yum! I love no bake recipes! I love no bake cookies even more!! I haven’t heard of that brand of protein but I am really interested…we just bought Garden of Life Raw Protein and I like it but I don’t love it-so maybe we will try this. Do you like the flavor? Is it chalky?

    Have a fabulous day!

    • I actually really like it and I don’t typically like protein powder. It tastes better than brands I have tried in the past and all of the ingredients are natural so I feel good about consuming it. It’s not chalky at all, it blends really nicely with other ingredients and doesn’t ball up like other kinds will.
