Hi guys,

MY LATEST VIDEOS

I’m back from a relaxing weekend at Hilton Head and could not be happier we went.  The Hubs and I have been tackling to-do list after to-do list lately and it was so nice to just take a break.  I’ll have highlights from our last minute beach trip on Wednesday.

Ever since I found out I was pregnant with twins I’ve been on a protein mission.  As a pescatarian, I’ve never had trouble getting protein before but being pregnant with twins means I need so much more than normal.  Since I’ve had to cut back on seafood but I’m still needing more protein than ever, I’ve had to get creative with my sources.  I’ve been eating lots of greek yogurt, eggs, and even tofu.  Despite my best efforts though I know some days I’m falling short, so I’ve been keeping protein power around to try to give myself a boost on those days where I haven’t hit my goals.

It’s a great boost for green smoothies but also fabulous for making high protein treats at home like my No Bake Homemade Peanut Butter Protein Bars recipe. YES… that’ peanut butter, chocolate AND protein together in one tasty, easy to make treat.

You will never believe how EASY these bars are to make.  They don’t require you to heat up for the oven, only take 5 INGREDIENTS and your active prep time on them is less than 10 minutes.

One of those ingredients is Premier Protein 100% Whey Powder.  Their Vanilla Milkshake flavor is absolutely perfect for this No Bake Homemade Peanut Butter Protein Bars recipe.

I love Premier Protein’s Whey Powder because it has no artificial flavors, colors or sweeteners.  It’s also packed with 30 grams of 100% whey protein with only 180 calories and 3 grams sugar.  That’s a lot of protein for one scoop!  This protein powder is lean AND gluten-free.

I’m looking for extra protein because I’m pregnant, but Premier Protein’s Whey Powder is equally as fabulous to use after a hard workout or long training run.  If you are active some extra protein is rarely a bad idea.  It is such a delicious, smooth and creamy powder.

The smooth consistency of Premier Protein 100% Whey Powder makes it a great choice for this No Bake Homemade Peanut Butter Protein Bars recipe.  It mixes in with the oat flour, peanut butter, and honey to make the easiest and tastiest homemade protein bars EVER.

You can leave the bars plain OR top them with a nice coat of chocolate.

I think you know which way I vote on that though… :-).

The bars that come in a box are nice, but these are made with love and taste like a dream!  Plus homemade costs SO much less.

Course: Snack
Cuisine: Amercian
Keyword: No Bake Homemade Peanut Butter Protein Bars recipe
Servings: 6 bars
Ingredients
  • 1 cup smooth peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup Vanilla Milkshake Premier Protein Whey Powder
  • 1/2 cup oat flour *
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips divided
Instructions
  1. In a microwave-safe mixing, jar stir together the peanut butter and honey.  Depending on the consistency of your peanut butter you might need to microwave the mixture for 15 seconds at a time until it is liquid enough to stir.

  2. Stir in the Vanilla Milkshake Premier Protein Whey Powder and the oat flour.  Mix well until the mixture is smooth.  Stir in a few chocolate chips.

  3. Lay out a large piece of plastic wrap.  Roll the dough out into a rectangle that is about 6-7 by 3-4 inches.  Carefully fold the dough until you get a uniform shape.  Wrap the dough in the plastic wrap and lay it flat in the freezer.  Allow it to harden for 20 minutes. 

  4. Remove the large bar from the freezer and cut it into 6 equal size bars. Melt the rest of the chocolate in a microwave-safe dish 15 seconds at a time until it is spreadable.  Spread the chocolate on top of each bar.  Put them back in the freezer for a few more minutes to harden up again.

  5. Store in an airtight container in the fridge.

Recipe Notes

* To make your own oat flour just put old fashioned oat in a food processor or high-speed blender.  Mix until you get a powder.  Sift the powder to get a fine oat flour.  To make gluten free use gluten-free oats.

    The peanut butter bars look delicious! Have you tried hemp hearts? They’re a great source of plant-based protein, and there’s all sorts of hemp heart granola on the market right now that are really tasty. I always toss some on top of my oatmeal for extra protein and extra deliciousness. I’d definitely recommend it if you haven’t had it!

    LOVE this powder! I just did a segment with them so we def have ample supply! I’ll have to give these a shot they sound delicious!
