Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Protein Bars

 

Those now take the #1 spot under the protein bars that I have tested so far. This batch is going to be a test batch at the gym for a bunch of trainers.

1.5 cups of chocolate brown rice protein powder or casein or whey or a combo of both
3/4 cup of coconut flour or ground almonds
1/4 cup of smooth organic peanut butter (or almond butter/sunflower butter/coconut oil)
1/8 cup of chopped pecans (or seeds or chocolate pieces)
1/8 cup of flaked coconut (optional)
1 and a 1/2 cup of milk (basically enough to bind the above mix together; you can use but milk, cow’s milk, rice milk, hemp milk – anything you like)
Macros per 6 bars: 225kcals, 15g protein, 12g carb (2.5g sugars), 16g fat and 5g fiber. This one is very versatile and those bars would be huge. Up the protein and lower the carbs by using almond flour, or reduce the fat by using less nut butter. I like them as treats so I make them a lot smaller.
