5 Min No-Bake Protein Bars Recipe
Quick and Easy No-Bake Protein Bars are SO simple to make. I don’t think people realize how easy it is! This recipe requires no baking and will take you less than 10 minutes. Seriously! Time yourself. I have another recipe posted for Almond Joy protein bars inspired by Jazzythings. It will give you a good idea on how easy it is to make different kinds. Try it out and see what you come up with!
The only thing this recipe does require is a pot to heat up and thin the peanut butter. Here’s how it goes:
- 1/2 cup peanut butter (I use crunchy for added texture)
- 1/2 cup honey
- 2/3 cup oats
- 2 and 1/2 scoops protein powder
- 2 tbsp water (if needed)
- 1/3 cup dark chocolate chips
First, heat the peanut butter and honey in a pot on medium to low heat until it’s thin. Then remove from heat, add your protein powder and oats, and mix up. You may need to add a little water as the mixture will get super thick. Only add a tsp at a time until it reaches a consistency that is relatively hard but will be easy to mold. I put the mixture into a 9×9 glass dish and press it out into a square. Heat up your chocolate chips (I use 30 sec intervals in the microwave mixing in between- usually takes 90 secs total), and cover the top of your protein bars with chocolate. I throw them in the freezer for 30 mins to an hour to harden then cut six lines down and one across for a total of 14 bars.
