These no bake peanut butter chocolate protein bars taste delicious and each bar has 9 grams of protein. Plus, they’re so easy to make.
I’m both a personal trainer and a health coach. Lucky for me, I’ve learned from both of these specialties about the importance of fueling up after workouts. I try to get a mix of protein and carbohydrates in my body within an hour of working out — protein to help rebuild my muscles and carbohydrates to help rebuild my energy stores.
I go through phases of grabbing certain snacks to keep in my gym bag — sometimes it’s protein powder to simply shake up with water, other times it’s been protein bars or energy bites. I went through a phase when I was constantly packing RXBARs for a post-workout snack. I would buy them by the case because they were (and still are!) that good.
I love the ingredient list, and they were actually a satisfying snack for me — especially after a workout.
I quickly realized how much money I was spending on RXBARs and I figured I should probably rein it in. These copycat protein bars are a product of that realization, and you guys… they’re amazing. Treat yourself to a protein bar for a fraction of the price! I can’t wait to experiment with more flavors. Maple sea salt, I’m looking at you!
