Peanut Butter Protein Bars
Prep time: 20 mins
Total time: 20 mins
  • 1½ cups rolled oats
  • ½ cup rice cereal
  • ¾ cup whey protein powder
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ½ cup creamy peanut butter
  • ¼ cup honey
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • ¼ cup vanilla almond milk
  • ¼ cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  1. Add oats to a blender and blend into a flour.
  2. Transfer the oat flour to a mixing bowl, and add the rice cereal, protein powder, and salt.
  3. Mix the ingredients well with a wooden spoon, then add the peanut butter, honey, vanilla, and almond milk. Stir until you get an evenly moist crumbly mixture.
  4. Line an 8-inch x 8-inch baking dish with parchment paper, and use another sheet of parchment paper to firmly press the dough into the pan.
  5. Place in the refrigerator.
  6. Melt the chocolate chips in a microwave safe dish, no more than 45 seconds at a time in-between stirs.
  7. Transfer the chocolate to a plastic bag and cut a hole in the bottom corner (the width of the hole will determine the size of the drizzle! I like mine small).
  8. Squeeze the bag over the bars, drizzling melted chocolate all over.
  9. Place in the freezer for 10 minutes, then lift the parchment paper onto a cutting board and cut 12 bars.
  10. Store in the refrigerator.
Makes 12 bars
