Peanut Butter Protein Bars

Nothing makes me happier than sharing a delicious peanut buttery recipe with you guys! With a blog name like Peanut Butter Fingers, it makes me feel like I am doing my job when I can share the peanut butter love with you through amazing treats.

When I got the okay from my friend Leah to share her Aunt Chris’ recipe for peanut butter protein bars, I couldn’t wait to post it on the blog! I hope you love these bars as much as I do.

Peanut Butter Protein Bars

The great news about these peanut butter protein bars is that the ingredient list is simple. They’re not only full of protein, but, for a sweet treat, they’re relatively healthy as well!

Eat Me!

Peanut Butter Protein Bars

Ingredients:

  • 1/3 c. honey
  • 1/3 c. dark brown sugar
  • 1 c. creamy peanut butter
  • ½ c. crunchy peanut butter
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 5 c. bran flakes (Raisin Bran works really well!)
  • 1/3 c. ground flaxseeds (optional)
  • 1 c. chopped Craisins

Directions:

  • Put honey in a large pot on medium heat. Add sugar and stir until melted and mixture begins to bubble. Add cinnamon and stir until dissolved.
  • Stir peanut butter into the honey mixture until smooth.
  • Remove from heat and stir in bran flakes, flax and Craisins.
  • Press firmly into an 8X8 pan lined with foil that overlays ends. Refrigerate for several hours or overnight.
  • Cut into squares and enjoy!

Notes: This recipe also freezes well, so you can make a big batch and freeze squares to enjoy in the future. Additionally, you may substitute 1 c. granola + 4 c. bran flakes for the 5 c. bran flakes. Protein powder may also be added to this recipe for an extra protein punch.

Enjoy!!!

    I had asked if you considered these sweets before I realized you already answered YES to someone else!

    I also wanted to tell you I was inspired by you to try making a protein pancake! I have been tweeking one of the “tone it up girls” recipes for the last week and I finally have perfected it for my taste buds! I wanted to thank you because if it wasn’t for you I wouldn’t have ever gone about this! SOOO YUMMY! I can’t wait for breakfast tomorrow.

    Hi, Neat post. There is an issue with your web site in internet explorer, would check this? IE still is the marketplace leader and a good part of other folks will omit your excellent writing because of this problem.

    Just made these and altered the recipe a little:
    Used maple syrup instead of honey
    Used natures path organic flax maple crunch cereal

    They are delicious!
    Couldn’t wait the few hrs to cut them so just rolled a little into 1″ balls….so good!
