Easy Homemade Protein Bars
Making your own protein bars is super easy! Homemade protein bars save you money and taste so much better than the bars you can buy!
Line a small loaf pan with parchment paper and set aside.
In a large glass or microwave-safe bowl, combine your nut butter with your sugar-free syrup. Heat it for 1 – 2 minutes in the microwave, mixing every 15 seconds until smooth and easy to mix together.
Add in the coconut flour, protein powder, and stevia powder and mix well.
Tip: How well the dough comes together depends on the brand of nut butter you use. You can add more coconut flour 1 tablespoon at a time if the dough seems to wet. Add a teaspoon or two of syrup more if the dough is too thick and not coming together easily.
Add the protein bar batter to the loaf pan and press to fill the pan. Sprinkle chopped peanuts on top and press in slightly
Refrigerate for an hour or two until the protein bars are firm enough to be cut and served.
This recipe makes 8 servings.
Any nut or seed butter can be substituted in equal quantities for this recipe.
The protein bars can be stored in the refrigerator for several days.
