4 Ingredient Protein Bar

Yield: 10 – 16 protein bars

Ingredients

● 1 1/2 cup peanut butter, or allergy-friendly sub

● 3/4 cup unsweetened protein powder of choice (90g)

● 1/4 cup pure maple syrup, honey, or agave -(sugar free: use monk Fruit)

● 1/2 tsp salt

● 4 oz melted chocolate chips, optional (can be stirred into batter – quicker)

Instructions

Stir all ingredients except optional chips to form a dough. Either shape into bars with your hands or smooth into a lined 8×8 pan, refrigerate until chilled, then cut into bars.

For the optional chocolate coating, spread the melted chocolate over the pan before chilling. (I usually stir 2 tsp oil into the melted chocolate for a smoother sauce, but it’s not required.) Or you can dip the bars into the chocolate sauce individually and then chill to set.
