“I was tired of purchasing protein bars in the store that had way too many ingredients in them. That and they didn't taste good. I whipped up this batch of protein bars and fell in love. I hope you like them as much as I do. Make sure to refrigerate them. Add more oats if needed and use any liquid or dry sweetener to taste. Add more or less as desired. With my protein powder, I get 12 grams of protein out of each bar.”
12 protein bars

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Put the peanut butter and butter in glass dish and microwave for 30 seconds. Take this out and stir till melted together.
  2. Add in vanilla and sweetener and stir till combined.
  3. Next, add in the protein powder and stir till combined.
  4. Add in the oats and stir till combined. Depending on what kind/how much sweetener you use, you may need to add a bit more or a bit less oats. You want a nice thick batter.
  5. Pour into parchment paper lined 8x8 pan and pat out.
  6. Refrigerate till solid.
  7. I use Jarrow Natural Whey Protein Powder, Unflavored. I have a friend whose used chocolate protein powder with these and loved it as well.
