Ingredients for Healthy Lucky Charms Protein Bars Recipe:

These lucky charms protein bars are made with simple healthy ingredients, have no sugar or milk, making them the perfect homemade gluten free, dairy free and sugar free protein bar!

Base for Homemade Lucky Charms Bars

  • Lucky Charms Cereal
  • Marshmallow Cereal Protein Powder – key for the high protein lucky charms bars.
  • I used Marshmallow Cereal protein powder here from HTLT Supps.
  • Oat Flour – You can make your own by blending rolled oats in a high speed blender
  • Unflavored Protein Powder to replace some of the flour (and carbs) in the recipe for a slightly lower carb high protein recipe. I recommend the Multi-purpose mix protein powder from Quest Nutrition.
  • Coconut Flour
  • Almond Milk
  • Get Lucky Almond Butter from American Dream! This is American Dream Nut Butter’s St. Patricks Day flavor: Get Lucky Almond Butter.
  • ADNB also has a lot of other almond butters that would go perfect here. Code HAYLSKITCHEN gets you a discount here!

The Protein Shake Milk and Cereal

  • Marshmallow Cereal Protein Powder for high protein marshmallow cereal bar, and also replace the sweetener.
  • I used HTLT Supps for this recipe.
  • Almond Milk
  • Lucky Charms Cereal

And for the Chocolate Topping:

  • White Chocolate Chips or Chopped Chocolate. I would recommend Lily’s to keep it sugar free.
  • Coconut Oil so the chocolate is easier to melt and more smooth when you drizzle.
