Put cereal and oatmeal in a small food processor/chopper and pulse until the cereal is chopped fine. Don't process it too much or else you'll end up with flour.*
Place cereal and oat mixture in a large mixing bowl and add in the coconut, protein powder and cocoa powder.
Add the brown rice syrup, honey, peanut butter, coconut oil, and vanilla to a small sauce pan on medium-low heat. Stir mixture and heat until everything is melted and combined, about 2 minutes.
Pour over the dry ingredients and stir very well, making sure to coat everything.
Line a pan with parchment paper and spread the mixture evenly into the pan. Place a sheet of parchment paper on top of the mixture, then press down as firmly as you can. Really press it down.
Melt chocolate chips in the microwave, stirring every 30 seconds until completely melted.
Spread the chocolate on top of the bars and freeze for at least an hour before slicing.
Store the bars in a sealed container in the freezer, fridge or a room temperature. I like them straight from the freezer!
