Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Protein Bars_main copy

What do you make when you have a huge bag of peanut protein? Make peanut butter chocolate chip protein bars, of course!  If you love peanut butter and peanuts in general, Jamie’s Peanut Protein from Labrada is really great. Its lightly sweetened and de-fatted, so it has a ton of peanut flavor, with less fat and more protein than the nut butter itself. Not that peanut butter isn’t amazing in its own right, but you see, if your entire bar was made of peanut butter, it wouldn’t be very calorie conscious. Know what I mean?

I eat a homemade protein bar everyday as my post-workout snack. These are quickly becoming one of my favorite combinations. I love how filling, peanut-y (is that a word?), and satisfying these bars are.

I’ve been enjoying these straight out of the freezer (and even photographed them frozen). But what’s great is they aren’t hard as a rock right out of the freezer, you can eat them right away.

On a budget and don’t have peanut protein? No problem! Use your favorite whey protein instead, just add less milk. I find using the peanut protein you need to add a touch more liquid to have in come together into a proper cookie dough consistency.

This recipe makes a good sized batch – 14 bars, so you’ll have plenty to spare to grab from the freezer when you’re on the go.
