Chocolate fudge cornflake protein bars (Vegetarian)

Chocolate fudge cornflake protein bars (Vegetarian)

As a child, my first memory of cooking at school was making chocolate cornflake cakes and as adults we don’t seem to want to release our inner child by buying these.  This recipe is the adult protein version so it’s a great snack to fuel your workout or just to enjoy with a cuppa!

Ingredients for 8 servings

150g multigrain protein flakes
30g unsalted butter
30g light agave syrup
50g 70% dark chocolate
2 scoops whey protein powder, chocolate flavour
3 tbsp semi skimmed milk

(Example ingredient amounts given, adjust accordingly to your requirements)


  • Line a loaf tin with non stick foil.  My loaf tin measured 12 x 5 inches.
  • Put the butter, agave syrup and chocolate into a glass bow set over a pan of gently simmering water, (do not let the base of the bowl touch the water).
  • Stir the mixture until smooth.
  • Add the 1st scoop of protein powder to the melted mixture and mix it in thoroughly.
  • Add the 2nd scoop of protein powder to the mixture and mix it in.
  • At this point you’ll start to panic as the mixture will turn from liquid to solid but don’t worry!
  • Add the milk a tablespoon at a time to loosen the mixture.  It will be a lovely thick fudgy consistency.
  • Add the multigrain flakes to the bowl and take a few minutes to coat the flakes in the chocolate mixture.
  • When you’re happy that the flakes are coated, pour the flakes into your loaf tin and press down the mixture.
  • Cover the tin with clingfilm and refrigerate for 1-2 hours.
  • When the bar has set, remove the tin from the fridge, turn out the mixture onto a chopping board and cut into bars.
  • How easy was that!


  • I prefer to use unsalted butter.
  • I use Natural Chocolate whey protein from Myprotein.
  • The agave syrup I used is Biona Organic Light Agave Syrup.

    Hi where did you get the multigrain protein flakes from? (I’m based in Ireland)

      Sonya, I bought the protein flakes from Sainsburys. The brand is called Fuel 10K Multigrain Protein Flakes. There are more and more higher protein cereals coming onto the market and I just picked these at random.

          Can you have this as a snack on C1?

            No sorry, if you notice the recipe is part of my ‘Lean recipes’ section – these are everyday healthy recipes but don’t fit BC plan principles.
