Healthy Mo-tella Fudge DIY Protein Bars

Servings: 10 bars
Prep Time: 30 mins
Total Time: 30 mins
These Healthy Mo-tella Fudge DIY Protein Bars are basically like Nutella protein bars — sweet, chocolatey, and hazelnutty — but without all the junky ingredients! These are no bake, easy to make, and addictive. You’d never know they’re sugar free, gluten free, dairy free, and vegan!



  • Line an 8x8” brownie pan with parchment paper. Set aside.
  • In an electric stand mixer bowl tted with a beater attachment, add all of the ingredients. Mix on low speed until everything is fully incorporated.
  • Scrape down the sides of the bowl. Mix on medium speed for one last mix. Mixture should be thick and fudgy, like cookie dough.
  • Scoop the mixture into the brownie pan and atten it out. Tightly cover the pan with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight.
  • Lift the mixture out of the pan. Slice into 12 bars. Individually wrap the protein bars in plastic sandwich baggies. Store in the refrigerator for up to 1 week or stash them in the freezer.

Recipe Notes

  • **You can buy hazelnut butter online or you can make it at home.  Making nut butters at home saves a TON of money, but you do need a good food processor to do it!
  • Do not use whey/egg/casein protein!  The mixture will be gooey and won’t solidify.
  • Keeps for ~1 week in the fridge or ~3 months in a sealed sandwich baggie in the freezer.
