These homemade keto cookie dough protein bars will be your new favorite go-to snack.
The perfect grab-and-go keto snack!
There’s a wide variety of protein bars out in the world of keto, but I’m finding many of them either crumble or have a chalky texture. Sometimes they don’t even resemble a protein bar at all!
To save us all time and money, I’ve created a homemade keto cookie dough protein bar. And let me tell you what, this bar was so EASY to make, I’m asking myself why I haven’t done this before!
I went with simple flavors for this bar so the whole family could try it. The easy cookie dough protein bar is soft yet holds together well with the protein powder. It almost resembles the amazing Bhu Keto Bars our team can’t get enough of!
The best part is this recipe requires zero baking so these bars are ready to go in under 15 minutes! Sweet!

Line an 8x8-inch baking dish with parchment paper for easy removal.
Add all ingredients except for the chocolate chips to a medium-sized bowl. Mix well to combine.
Transfer the mixture to the prepared baking dish and PRESS FIRMLY as this will help hold the bar together. Add chocolate chips to the top and press down to incorporate them into the dough.
Refrigerate for at least 10 minutes before cutting into 9 bars. Enjoy!

Tips for making homemade keto cookie dough protein bars:
- Customize with your favorite flavors. I created a basic bar but you can add additional flavors to it like nuts or shredded coconut.
- Pack it tightly. When mixing the ingredients, you’ll notice the texture is loose but once you drop it into the pan, make sure you PRESS FIRMLY to create that dense bar texture.
- Make sure to use a keto confectioners sweetener. You’ll notice the texture of a granular sweetener as it won’t fully dissolve.
- Store airtight in the fridge. Just like any bar, they can sit out at room temperature but will have a longer shelf life if sealed in an airtight container and stored in the refrigerator for up to 4 weeks.
These low-carb bars are perfect to grab while you are running out the door, after a post-workout treat, or anytime you need a little keto-friendly indulgence.
Here’s what my Hip sidekick, Emily, had to say about this recipe:
