An easy protein bar recipe with just a few ingredients, and you can can customize it for different flavors!

What Kind Of Protein Powder?

At the grocery store, you can find bars made from all sorts of different protein powders, such as brown rice protein, pea protein, whey protein, pumpkin seed, egg whites, hemp protein, collagen, casein, and soy protein.

Popular brands include Perfect Bars, Clif Bars, Luna Bars, RXBAR, Quest Bars, Kind, Think, Pure, One, Gatorade protein bars… the list goes on and on.

In this recipe, I’ve found that unsweetened protein powder is best, because the bars are sweet enough on their own without adding extra sugar or artificial sweeteners from the powder.

However, if you have a specific brand of flavored protein powder that you love, feel free to experiment (possibly cutting back on the sweetener in the recipe?), and let me know how it goes if you do!

Depending on the type of protein powder you choose, each of the bars in this healthy protein bar recipe will have around 10-12 grams of protein, or over 20 grams of protein if you make them into larger (60-gram) bars.

The Best Protein Bar Recipe

People eat protein bars for a variety of different reasons including muscle gain, weight loss, as a post workout portable snack or meal replacement, to curb hunger or help them feel full longer, as an easy way to add protein to their diet, or simply because they like the taste.

When I became a vegetarian in high school, I initially relied on energy bars as a convenient way to replace protein from meat.

Recently, I’ve started to make my own because I prefer bars made with sugar over erythritol or monk fruit and have been seeing fewer of those options available (or some that are available taste too sweet).

The best part about making your own protein bars is that you get to choose every single ingredient – Try one of the flavors above, or throw a handful of shredded coconut, chia seeds, or chopped dark chocolate into the dough to make your own custom flavor!

Ingredients

1 1/2 cup peanut butter, or allergy-friendly sub
3/4 cup unsweetened protein powder of choice (90g)
1/4 cup pure maple syrup, honey, or agave (or try these Keto Protein Bars)
1/2 tsp salt
4 oz melted chocolate chips, optional
See earlier in this post for five protein bar flavor ideas

Instructions

Stir all ingredients except optional chips to form a dough. Either shape into bars with your hands or smooth into a lined 8Γ—8 pan, refrigerate until chilled, then cut into bars. For the optional chocolate coating, spread the melted chocolate over the pan before chilling. (I usually stir 2 tsp oil into the melted chocolate for a smoother sauce, but it’s not required.) Or you can dip the bars into the chocolate sauce individually and then chill to set.
