No Bake Chia Protein Muffins + Bob’s Red Mill Giveaway

All opinions expressed in this post are my own. Bob’s Red Mill provided me with products in order to facilitate this review.

No-bake snacks are one of the easiest ways to incorporate superfoods and healthy ingredients into your daily diet. These No Bake Chai Protein Muffins are loaded with nutritional ingredients, like chia and flax seeds, hemp hearts, organic nut butter, and coconut oil, with an added boost of protein thanks to Bob’s Red Mill’s Chia Protein Powder Nutritional Booster.

I recently had the opportunity to try out some of Bob’s Red Mill products, from their gluten-free flours, pancake and cake mixes, and hazelnut and walnut flour to their new plant-based line of nutritional boosts and meal replacements. Not only are their protein powders delicious, they are easily digested since they are made with pea protein powder. They are all gluten-free, soy-free, and vegan with a healthy dose of omega 3’s and probiotics.

Today I’m sharing the recipe for these two-bite superfood treats, which are jam-packed with healthy ingredients. The addition of the Chai Protein Powder makes for a protein-packed snack to enjoy before or after hitting the gym. Not only are these two-bite vegan treats healthy, they are also so unbelievably decadent – and addictive! They’re chewy, rich, and chocolaty, with just a hint of spice from the chai blend. These treats might only be enough for two-bites, but I can assure you that they will be two-bites of heaven! On top of that, they’re super easy to prepare. I’ve made them into these convenient little ‘muffins’ for a quick grab n’ go snack, but you can switch it up by transforming them into bars or balls. I might be tooting my own horn here, but this recipe is perfect just the way it is however, you can switch it up by adding more or less of an ingredient – except for the oats and honey which combined together with the applesauce give that perfectly chewy texture. And that decadent vegan ganache? It’s a simple addition that brings the flavour of these no bake chai protein muffins over the top. You can find the recipe here.

    I’d like to try Bob’s Red Mill products, they look inviting. I subscribed to the newsletter.(rangrace@hotmaildotcom

  • I subscribed to your newsletter. I purchase a lot of Bob’s Red Mill products, and I did not know that they had a Chai Protein Powder. I think that’s very interesting because of the ‘chai’ part of it. I like the tea, so I’m wondering if this is something that I wouldn’t mind trying out. I love Bob’s Red Mill!

  • I’m a new subscriber to your newsletter and a big fan of Bob’s Red Mill products. Thanks!

    I’m a huge fan of Bob’s Red Mill products .. but I’d yet to run across this one. Thank-you for introducing it to your readers. At our house we’re forever looking for easy snacking ideas. My husband is on the road a lot for work .. and we have grandchildren underfoot. I’ll be making up a batch this weekend!

    • My kids love these! They are perfect for little kids to munch on, and they’re decadent but GOOD for them! I store them in the freezer and remove them 5-10 minutes before serving.

  • I need to try this. I think these would be easy snacks to make for work. We love using Bob’s Red Mill for baking. the best!

  • Thanks for this recipe, it sounds pretty simply and totally delicious! I love Bob’s Red Mill products, I use them all the time! I could really use this gift card 🙂

  • Anything that is no-bake is a plus in my books. I had never actually heard of chai protein flour but it looks like a wonderful addition to this recipe. I definitely have to try it out!

  • Melanie 5 months ago

    I like using almond butter in recipes. I would probably recreate this recipe but with the almond butter. I like Bob’s Red Mill products. We have been using them for several years.

    • Great idea! I also use nut butter in everything! I thought I would switch it up and use applesauce instead, which would make these easily adaptable to a nut-free school-friendly recipe (if you omit the peanut butter powder as well).

  • Stephanie M 5 months ago

    These look amazing! Can they be frozen if you make a big batch? This looks like a perfect healthy and portable breakfast for my family when we’re on the go! Can’t wait to give it a try!

    • Yes! In fact, according to the directions they need to be stored in the freezer. Just remove them 5-10 minutes before serving so they softens lightly. I eat them right out of the freezer – so do my kids!

  • Dagmar M 5 months ago
