What you will need

Bar Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup vanilla protein powder
  • 1/2 cup almond flour
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1/3 cup chocolate chips

Topping Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup melted chocolate
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil
protein bars on a plate

How to make the protein bars

In a large bowl, combine the peanut butter, protein powder, almond flour, and maple syrup.

Combine them well.

This is your cookie dough protein base. Note: use natural peanut butter for this recipe. This is the kind that contains only peanuts and salt and it is much runnier in consistency.

Next, fold in the chocolate chips. Add parchment paper to the bottom of a baking dish (I used a 5 x 7 ” pan).

Transfer the cookie dough in the baking dish and pack it in tightly using your fingers or a spatula. Make sure to create a flat, even layer.

Melt your chocolate and measure out 1/2 cup.

Combine the coconut oil to the chocolate and mix them well.

Pour the chocolate mixture over the cookie dough layer and refrigerate for 2-3 hours until the chocolate hardens.

Once the bars are done, top them with some flakey salt, slice, and enjoy!
