Simple No Bake Protein Bars 

These simple no bake protein bars are so incredibly delicious. Made with only a handful of simple ingredients, it’s a really easy recipe too. Enjoy the healthy deliciousness!

 

 Recently I was puttering around the kitchen trying to think of a healthy after school snack for my son as well as something for me to grab while working on the computer.

I opened my pantry and saw a few jars of peanut butter, one jar of cashew butter, and one jar of seed butter.

I grabbed the peanut butter and a few more ingredients.

As I started to mix up the few ingredients it held together nicely and liked the consistency. Kind of like a dryer cookie dough.

It wasn’t a large amount of dough so to speak so I grabbed a loaf pan, lined with wax paper and pressed the dough and added some more chips.

Put the pan in the fridge and pulled them out when my son got off the bus. We both tasted them at the same time and both gave a big smiles and said at the exact time,
“these are so good”

We both think these taste like the refrigerated protein bars called Perfect Bars. Those are really expensive for just one. Homemade is so much better in my book. 

Best part, these are made with healthy ingredients. 

Since then, I have made them with cashew butter and the bars tasted just as delicious.

The amounts really don’t have to be exact. This recipe is very forgiving.

You will know the right consistency for pressing into the pan.

Also, the recipe is easily doubled.

Using a protein powder gives these bars a nice punch of protein to keep you feeling full.

Try this simple recipe  and enjoy anytime of day.

Recipe Update: We have made these with just about every nut butter and some seed butters.

We found they all worked. It’s just a matter of taste preference. Our favorite is still peanut butter and cashew butter is right up there in second place.

What’s in these simple no bake protein bars…

Ingredients:

  • 1/2-3/4 cup natural, no sugar added peanut butter, cashew butter and almond butter work well too (I like salted for this recipe)
  • 1/4 cup oat flour or, you can use almond or peanut flour
  • about 1 1/2 scoops vanilla protein powder, vegan, whey, soy all work
  • 1 to 2 tbsp agave, or you can use any sticky sweetener
  • 1/3 cup sugar free chocolate chips, such as Trim Healthy Chocolate Chips or Lily’s Sweets Chocolate Chips
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/8 tsp sea or kosher salt
  • a few more chips for top

Directions:

  1. In a medium mixing bowl, combine all ingredients except chocolate chips with the smaller amounts listed first. Mix until you get a cookie dough kind of batter. Maybe a little dryer.
  2. Add in chips. You can use clean hands to mix everything together and form a dough. Press into a loaf pan that has been lined with parchment or wax paper. Leave a little overlapping for easy removal. Use a small measuring cup to even out the dough and to smooth to the ends of the pan. Sprinkle more chips on top and lightly press in.
  3. Place in fridge for at least 2 to 3 hours. When chilled and firm. Take out of fridge, lift the parchment paper up and cut into 5 bars then cut those in half or leave as a longer bar. Store in fridge up to 4 days.

Enjoy the healthy deliciousness!
