Chocolate Peanut Butter Protein Bars

Chocolate Peanut Butter Protein Bars taste super similar to Perfect Bars and are only 3-ingredients (5 with the toppings). They take just a few minutes to make and are the perfect high-protein snack!

Chocolate Peanut Butter Protein Bars

I love protein bars but they can be loaded with unhealthy ingredients, too much sugar and can be too costly for my liking. I made these Chocolate Peanut Butter Protein Bars on social media which taste very similar to Perfect Bars and had to share the recipe here on the blog too.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Protein Bars Ingredients

It almost sounds silly but these Chocolate Peanut Butter Protein Bars only have 3-ingredients. When you add on the chocolate drizzle and salted peanuts on top, there are only 5-ingredients total. So easy!

-Peanut butter- the natural drippy kind works well

-Chocolate protein powder

-Maple syrup

-Toppings

-Chocolate to drizzle

-Chopped salted peanuts


Healthy Chocolate Peanut Butter Protein Bars

After a workout, I love having one of these chocolate peanut butter protein bars. They are filling, chewy and loaded with peanut butter flavor. The chocolate drizzle on top and crunchy salted peanuts make the bars even better. Store these bars in the fridge until you are ready to eat. They get fairly soft when left out of the fridge. 

These bars are also awesome made with vanilla protein powder (or any flavored protein powder for that matter). The peanut butter can be swapped for almond butter for a different flavor. These store in the fridge for 1-2 weeks.
