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!
- ½ cup coconut flour
- ¼ cup vanilla protein powder (any low-carb brand)
- 1 tsp. Stevia
- 1 cup natural peanut butter (no salt & sugar added)
- ¼ cup + 2 tbsp. sugar-free syrup
- ¼ cup chopped peanuts
Step 1: Measure all the ingredients. Line a small loaf pan with parchment paper and set aside (or use a non-stick loaf pan).
Step 2: In a large glass or microwave-safe bowl, combine your nut butter and sugar free syrup. Heat it for 1 – 2 minutes in the microwave, mixing every 15 seconds until smooth and easy to mix together.
Step 3: 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.
Step 4: Add the protein bar batter to the loaf pan and press to fill the pan. Sprinkle chopped peanuts on top and press in slightly.
Step 5: Refrigerate for an hour or two until the protein bars are firm enough to be cut and served.
