Peanut Butter Protein Bars

I was totally blown away by ALL the entries for the Chobani giveaway! Thank you all so much for entering – and to the winners – enjoy your Greek yogurt πŸ˜‰ The winners are:

#6 Kristin! #27 Jess! #31 Freckled Foodie!

Congrats guys! Just email me with your info and I’ll pass it along to Chobani πŸ™‚ More giveaways coming soon, but for now, here’s a little protein bar recipe I’ve been absolutely LOVING!

Peanut Butter Protein Bars

Β MakesΒ 6-8 bars, depending on how BIG you like em’ πŸ˜‰

Ingredients:

1 cup peanut butter, melted

1/4 cupΒ honey (maple syrup works too!)

1 cup whey protein powder (I use Jay Robb Vanilla)

1/4 cup peanut flour

Simply melt the peanut butterΒ + stir in the honey

Combine dry ingredients

Slowly mix with the peanut butter/honey mixture

Form into a ball and seperate into 6-8 bars and press firmly onto plastic wrap

Pop em in the fridge or enjoy as a soft, chewy peanut buttery treat!

Let me know if you try them! They’re flippin’ DELICIOUS – they remindΒ me of the filling inside a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup!

They’re great to add to your purse snack collection πŸ˜‰ I like to eat them in class, but fair warning – you WILL have people around you commenting on “that peanut buttery smell…” just take it as a compliment and tell them you carved out the center of a few Reese’s cups. No big deal, totally normal.

Peace and love (and lots of peanut butter)!

Meg

  4. Those bars look SO good – YUM! I agree with everyone else – smelling like peanut butter is definitely not a bad thing πŸ™‚

    Yay! I happen to have all the ingredients…kind of…
    Can I use PB2 instead of peanut flour? I think a little bit of coconut oil won’t hurt..hehehe

  11. Oh my gosh, what an amazing and easy idea! Appreciate it 100% πŸ˜€

  12. Totally normal for me, too! πŸ˜‰

  13. Oo these remind me of the inside of a Fastbreak candy bar which are one of my favs! It would be delicious to try different kinds of PB too..like cinnamon raisin swirl! Mmm!

  14. Ooh I bet they taste almost like PF bars! I want to make these right now!! “Your purse snack collection” hahaha I definitely have one of those πŸ™‚

  15. Jay Robb vanilla is the best! its so pricy, I don’t know if i could allow myself to use a cup of it, lol. but these look so good, maybe well worth the money.

  16. Those peanut butter bars look fabulous girl! I would’ve never thought to add my own protein powder to homemade bars. I am definitely going to save this recipe πŸ™‚

  17. Ohhhh yea, those sound amazing! I am copying the recipe right NOW so I can make them soon. I need to get some more protein powder though…i’m getting low. Thanks for the recipe darlin’!

  18. I am totally making these and taking them to class with me. haha I can’t wait for the comments–everyone in my classes probably knows me as the girl who eats carrots in the beginning of every class anyways! I am soo excited to make these because I am always trying to up my protein intake! Have a great halloween weekend πŸ™‚

  19. This would be a simple recipe to add some flaxseed to, and you probably wouldn’t even notice!

  20. Haha, I eat peanut butter so much that when I meet my friends in the morning before school, they smell my face and try to guess what kind of peanut butter I’ve eaten for breakfast. “White chocolate wonderful?” “Yeah, definitely.”

    I might just try that recipe… I got some protein powder recently and am not really a fan, but I have a feeling pairing it with PB could make it better πŸ™‚

  21. Kat

    Oh my gosh totally delicious I bet! I wonder if I could trick my hubby with these…. πŸ˜‰

  22. Those sound so good! If we got peanut butter here in Canada, I’d already be making them πŸ˜›

  23. kay
