Chocolate Protein Bars

Chocolate Protein Bars

  • 2 Cups (or 16oz. jar) Natural Peanut Butter
  • 1 1/2 to 1 3/4 Cups Honey (or even a bit less–add a splash of almond milk if too thick)
  • 2 Cups Chocolate Vegan Protein Powder (I like Arbonne)
  • 3 Cups Rice Krispies

In a microwave-safe bowl, combine peanut butter and honey. Heat for about 90 seconds until it stirs easily. Add protein powder and Rice Krispies and mix thoroughly (The mixture will be thick). Press into a 9 x 13 inch pan. Refrigerate for about 1 hour, or until solid enough to cut into bars. Store in refrigerator or freezer. These keep well for weeks in the freezer.

Recipe Alternatives:

  • Almond or other nut/seed Butter in place of Peanut Butter
  • Vanilla Protein in place of Chocolate Protein or half of each
  • Oats (gluten-free) or puffed rice or cocoa rice krispies in place of Rice Krispies
  • 100% Pure Maple Syrup in place of honey or use some of each
  • When using Vanilla Protein, add a teaspoonful or so of cinnamon

Note: You can obviously be as creative as you like with these. Have fun experimenting, as the options are numerous as to what you could add or substitute. I like Arbonne protein because it tastes great, is easily digestible, is gluten and dairy free (if either of those are an issue for you), and contains no artificial sweeteners, colors, or sweeteners. It’s clean.

More on protein powders. Protein powders come in all varieties. Find one that is easy for you to digest and that tastes good. Expect to pay more for a high-quality protein, i.e. whey protein from grass-fed cows, vegan proteins that are non-GMO and certified gluten-free. Protein sources include rice, egg, milk, pea, hemp, soy, cranberry, artichoke. Some are fortified with vitamins and minerals and some are only protein. It can be a bit confusing, however you
get what you pay for. By choosing a “cheap” protein powder, you’re likely to get higher amounts of lactose, fat, fillers, and so on not removed during the isolation process. If you’re struggling with figuring out the best type of protein for you, I’m happy to help.
