Peanut Butter Oat Protein Bars

My client requested a homemade protein bar the other day that her kids would like so I dreamt up this protein bar with oats, peanut butter and melted chocolate. And it was a huge hit!


A lot of you sent me requests for this recipe and I'm super excited to share it with you all today!


It's such an easy no bake recipe which makes it even better. So let's go!



Ingredients:


3 cups organic rolled oats

3 scoops plant-based vanilla protein powder of choice

8-10 organic medjool dates, pitted

2/3 cup organic smooth peanut butter (palm oil and sugar free)

1/3 cup maple syrup

1 tsp good quality vanilla extract

Pinch of sea salt

3 tbsp water

1 cup chocolate chips (I like vegan chocolate but you can use anything you like)

1 tbsp coconut oil

Sprinkle of maldon sea salt on top


Start by blending your oats and protein powder in a food processor. Pulse until they are finer crumbs


Add in to the food processor your pitted dates. If you can't get ones that are already pitted, just make sure to remove the pit.


Then add in the peanut butter and vanilla extract with water and a pinch of sea salt.


Blend on high until a thick mixture clumps together.


Line a 9 inch brownie pan with parchment paper and a little coconut oil.


Press the mixture down in to the brownie pan until it's pushed in to each corner and is nice and flat and even.


Now melt your chocolate chips and the coconut oil in the microwave at 1 minute intervals for 2-3 minutes, stirring in between until melted and smooth.


Pour or drizzle the chocolate over the protein bars and smooth it over them to cover or leave a drizzle pattern. It's up to you, get creative!


Now you could add over some freeze dried fruit like strawberries or crushed up nuts but I kept it simple with a little sprinkle of maldon sea salt.


Pop it in to the fridge to set for 2-3 hours or over night. Or if you need them quickly, you could set them in the freezer for 1 hour. Remember to take them out though!


Now cut them in to bars. Go horizontally across the middle once and then in to even vertica strips.


Keep in the fridge in a glass Tupperware for whenever you need a little morning treat or a quick bite with a cup of tea.


Enjoy!
