PIN Perfect Bar Recipe
This perfect peanut butter protein bar recipe feels like EVERYTHING that I have been working towards in my life, all sliced up in a CHEWY, DENSE, protein PACKED and OH SO PEANUT BUTTERY little bar of pure, unadulterated MAGIC.
Yep. Even more than those healthy peanut butter oatmeal breakfast bars or No Bake Whole30 Apple Almond Butter Bars that I WAS making every single weekend until THESE rolled around.
Why You Will LOVE This Recipe

- PROTEIN. Whiiiich, THEY HAVE.
- The perfect bar ingredients are SUPER simple and clean

- This peanut butter protein bar recipe is one of the easiest and most delicious, and TOTALLY ZERO PERCENT sad things that you will ever have the satisfaction of shoveling into your hungry, snacking mouth.
- All you have to do is beat a few wholesome ingredients together, press them into a pan and let the refrigerator firm it ALL up to create this DENSE and RICH, healthy-fat and protein-packed slice of HEAVEN.
- 1 1/4 cups natural peanut butter, creamy
- 1/4 cup honey, plus 4 tsp
- 3/4 cup non-fat dry milk powder
- 1/2 cup unflavored powdered egg whites
- 3 tbsp coconut oil, melted
- Line the bottom and sides of a loaf pan with parchment paper.
- In a large bowl, using an electric hand mixer, beat together the peanut butter and honey until they thicken.
- Add the remaining ingredients and beat until they begin to mix. Then, use your hands until well mixed. The dough will be thick, a little bit sticky, and soft.
- Press evenly into the prepared pan and refrigerate for at least 4 hours, or until firm.
- Slice into bars
Use only 1/4 cup plus 2 teaspoons honey and sub the dry milk powder for SIFTED (very important) powdered coconut milk.
Omit all the milk powder and use all egg protein, if you want to make it suitable for a paleo diet, and it works great. It is slightly less sweet, but still very tasty! Also, substitute almond butter for the peanut butter.
Use refined coconut oil if you don’t want a coconut taste.
I recommend a no-stir variety of peanut butter.
how to store perfect Peanut Butter protein bars
Keep them in an airtight container so they don’t dry out. Put them in the fridge for up to a week, or you can put them in the freezer where they will last for up to 3 months. If freezing them, wrap them in plastic individually then put them in an airtight container. Also, don’t stack them regardless of where you store them.
