- Blueberry Puree – I used fresh blueberries that I pureed in a small blender, but you’re welcome to use frozen blueberries, too.
- Greek Yogurt – I used Fage 0% Greek Yogurt in this recipe, but if you want to turn this into a vegan snack, you can also use dairy-free yogurt subs like almond milk yogurt or coconut milk yogurt.
- Protein Powder – You can use any protein powder for this, but I used an unflavored whey-casein protein powder I had at home since I wanted the color of the blueberries to show through. You’re welcome to use other light-colored protein powder for this recipe, such as vanilla.
- Coconut Flour – Used to hold the dough together. I used this brand.
- Monkfruit Sweetener, or sugar of choice – to add more sweetness if needed.

How to Make
Blueberry Greek Yogurt Protein Bars
Puree blueberries in a small blender, or finely mash with a fork.
Mix protein powder, coconut flour, almond flour, greek yogurt, sugar of choice (omit if using sweetened protein powder) and the prepared blueberry puree. I find that it’s best to use my hands to mix the dough because it takes some kneading and pressing to get the dough to come together.
Add more coconut flour if the dough is too soft, add a teaspoon or more of almond milk if the dough is too thick.
Shape dough into a rectangular mound, then wrap in plastic wrap or an airtight container, and let the dough set in the fridge for at least 30 minutes. Slice into bars.
Dip the protein bars into the melted chocolate and then set it aside on a clean parchment paper. Drizzle with more chocolate if desired.
Recipe Variations and Optional Add Ins:
- You can use any berries of choice. Try raspberries, strawberries using this same recipe!
- Feel free to experiment with natural flavoring / extracts. Add a teaspoon of vanilla extract (I didn’t feel like it was essential so I left it out in this recipe), or other flavorings or extracts, such as lemon extract
Just keep in mind that some extracts contain alcohol, and since this is a no-bake recipe, the alcohol won’t have a chance to fully evaporate. If serving this to kids, or if you’re sensitive to alcohol, be sure to use non-alcoholic extracts or flavorings. Here are some non-alcoholic brands, here: Non-alcoholic vanilla extract , non-alcoholic lemon extract
- Add chocolate chips of choice (white, dark, or mini chocolate chips) for a more indulgent version
How to Make this Healthier
- Make this even healthier by adding a handful of nuts, seeds and old-fashioned oats to add texture and nutrition. Even better, add a tablespoon of ground flaxseed, hemp seeds, or chia seeds.
How to Store
- Store these protein bars covered in the fridge for up to 3-5 days.
- For longer storage, freeze them in an airtight container or ziploc bag. They’ll be good for up to 3 months.

- Coconut flour and protein powders are all very different depending on brands, so if you find that the dough is too soft, add more coconut flour; if the dough is too thick, add a teaspoon or more of water, honey or liquid sweetener of choice.

Hi did you mean almond flour or almond milk in your recipe??? My dough does not look like yours, I’m wondering if you meant to add almond milk, not flour. My dough is very dry.
All Purpose Veggies says
Hi Carmen, I used almond flour for sure, but I wonder what went wrong. Did you use the same protein powder? Depending on the protein powder, you might need to add more greek yogurt or other liquids to hydrate the dough.
Mine was awful!, Certainly needed something.
Mine was like yours…soooooooo dry!, I used vegan protein powder…otherwise all the same.

I’m not sure what happened with the above but everything was perfect. I pureed a few more berries to make sure I tasted enough blueberry and I used frozen which may have given my dough a little more moisture. Other than that, I added the chia seeds, and a half tsp of lemon extract. The dough was perfect consistency. I only did half of the white chocolate measure to lessen the calories and brushed it on the top of each one. Also cut them into brownie type size. Again, I think your recipe is spot on. Thanks!
