Peanut Butter Protein Bars

Protein Bars are easy for a quick snack or an On The Go meal, but they are quite pricey when it comes to buying them. I eat protein bars ALL the time in between work and the gym, breakfast, and snacks. So what could be better than making your own?


  • 1/2 cup peanut butter

  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil

  • 1/8 cup honey

  • 2 tsp vanilla extract

  • 2 scoops of vanilla designer protein powder

  • 1 cup quick oats

  • 2 tablespoons chia seeds

  • 2 tablespoons chocolate chips + 1 teaspoon coconut oil

  • 1/3 cup dried craisins

  • 1/3 cup unsweetened shredded coconut

  • 1/4 cup chopped pecans/walnuts (optional)

Directions (Makes 10-12 bars):

  1. Heat peanut butter, coconut oil, honey and vanilla in a saucepan over low heat and mix together

  2. Remove from heat and combine with protein powder,oats, craisins, chopped nuts (optional), chia seeds, and coconut flakes. Place in a 7X9 inch pan lined with parchment paper

  3. Add chocolate chips and coconut in a saucepan and place over low heat until melted. Drizzle over the tops of the bars.

  4. Place in fridge for 1 hour before removing from pan and cutting into bars
