Peanut Butter Protein Bars!

by Nicole on July 26, 2012

Morning! Is it crazily storming by you? I got up and out at 7:30 this morning and it was pretty cool and sunny. I got in 5 miles, although it wasn’t anything to write home about (which I’ll be talking about tomorrow…) I got it done through running and walking. Good thing I didn’t procrastinate because now it’s ridiculously raining.

Anyway…every so often I get tired of the snacks I’m eating and look for a new one to make. I wanted to make some type of bar with chocolate and peanut butter. Basically when I do this I tend to just throw things in the food processor or mixer and taste it as I go along. I decided my main ingredients would be oats, peanut butter and Vega protein powder and then went from there. Here’s what I came up with!

 *Note: I used 1 scoop protein powder and 4 tbsp agave nectar but you could use 2 scoops protein powder and 2 tbsp agave nectar as well.

I cut these into 16 squares and found the size to be perfect!

I’ve been snacking on these for the past 2 days and find one square to be very filling and satisfying!

What’s your favorite snack right now?

Mmmm…those look SO good. I think I could eat just about anything right now because I just ran myself. It is VERY stormy where I am too. Last night was crazy. I honestly wish I could have stayed up all night watching it, but my eyes could barely stay open long enough to watch the lightning once haha!

Awesome idea and recipe! Do you think if I replaced the hemp with ground flax that would mess up the taste/consistency? trying to find sneaky ways to get my omegas!

I love peanut butter and vega. What a wonderful snack recipe! Did you use a plain vega protein powder or a flavoured chocolate one?

The boys would go nuts over these! I’ve been making quick no bake things for them lately, but they finally got a batch of baked cookies. I was feeling guilty for not baking much for them lately due to the heat. So, since the oven was going to be on for dinner, I went ahead and baked cookies too. These are next on my list to make! They look delicious!
