These protein bars are the BEST recipe – just 4 ingredients and packed with over 20 grams of protein and just 2 grams of carbs
2 cups almond (or any other nut) butter
1½ cups protein powder, vanilla or unflavored
¼ cup honey or maple syrup
1 cup chocolate chips * See notes
Line an 8×8-inch loaf pan with parchment paper and set aside. In a large mixing bowl, add your almond butter and maple syrup and mix until combined. Add the protein powder and mix well, until combined. Use your hands to knead into a dough. If the mixture is too dry, add some milk. Transfer into the lined pan and refrigerate for an hour.
Once firm, slice them into 12 bars. Melt your chocolate chips and using two forks, dip the bars into the chocolate until fully coated. Place them on parchment paper until the chocolate has hardened.
* You can also use white chocolate or chocolate bars instead.
Leftover protein bars will keep at room temperature, covered, for up to one week. If you would like to keep them longer, store them in the refrigerator. Place protein bars in a zip lock bag and store them in the freezer for up to 6 months.
