I love a good protein bar, but let's face it - buying pre-packaged protein bars can get expensive! I've become pretty obsessed with perfect bars lately, all the more reason to try to make them at home!

Making homemade snacks like date energy balls, vanilla almond granola or homemade peanut butter cups are a lot of times even better than their packaged counterparts!

What Make This Recipe Work

  • Lower in sugar and calories compared to the packaged version. These bars are smaller and less than 200 calories per serving.
  • Cheaper than $2-3 per bar you buy in the store!
  • These are an easy on-the-go treat you can make for a snack, breakfast or even dessert. The perfect cookie dough with the combination of sweet and salty.
  • Make with high protein by adjusting your whey protein or plant protein and make them a great pre workout snack or on the go post workout treat after the gym.
  • This recipe is completely adaptable according to your taste preferences! Although chocolate peanut butter is so good, you may even like dark chocolate almond, birthday cake or pumpkin!

In a large bowl combine all ingredients except for chocolate chips and sea salt. Mix until well incorporated and then fold in ¾ of the chocolate chips.

Scoop bar mixture into a bread pan (or an 8X8 pan) lined with parchment paper. Press in remaining chocolate chips and top with flaky sea salt. Allow to chill in the fridge for at least one hour before cutting. Cut 16 bars by cutting 8 bars diagonally and then each in half.

Expert Tips

  • Instead of making bars, roll peanut butter mixture into protein balls using a cookie scoop.
  • Swap peanut butter for almond or cashew butter if you prefer.
  • Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to a week.
  • Substitutions suggestions:
    • almond butter or cashew butter for peanut butter
    • omit mini chocolate chips or swap for almonds or peanuts or even white chocolate chips
    • use collagen protein powder instead of vanilla protein powder
