This is so good. I really love the recipe. I have been working out more during this lockdown and these protein bars will surely help me. Thank you for sharing this amazing recipe.
These are delicious! The texture and flavor are great! I used only 1 tbsp of honey and it was plenty sweet. 🙂
Can I use collagen powder for the protein powder?
If you wanted to reduce the sugar content (particularly if using sweetened protein powder), do you have any suggestions for something else “sticky” to help the bars hold together? Thanks!
I tried this recipe again today with a few tablespoons of pumpkin instead of honey and I think it worked! The are chilling now but had a good texture when I formed them in the pan.
Any chance oat flour could work😭😭
I just used a mix of oat flour, almond flour, and ground flax with no problem. I can’t see why using just oat flour would be a problem.
So easy to make and taste just like a perfect bar! I used unflavored vital proteins collagen powder and about 4 tablespoons honey. I added in a little vanilla extract too. They kind of taste better though like raw cookie dough. I cut into 16 squares. Thanks for the recipe!

In the original “perfect bar”, they have some veggie powders. Do you have any ideas how to add in some veggies to this?
I was trying to reduce the sugar/honey so replaced it with pumpkin and that worked well!
I’ve never bought protein powder, is there a particular brand that works well with baking? I shop at Trader Joe’s or Sprouts, so something available there would be helpful! Thanks!

These are great. I used Simple brand Pumpkin Seed Protein. The second time I made them I replaced 6 TBSP of the almond flour with 2 TBSP each of ground flaxseed, chia seeds, and hemp seeds. They are a nice variety on the original recipe and I imagine you could do many different add ins instead of that as well.
These are amazing they keep you feeling full and are so easy and quick to make
Can you tell me how many calories each bar will be and protein?
I LOVE this recipe. I put a tad bit less honey and they still come out great. I make some every Sunday for the week.
These are so good! Honestly I don’t like protein bars in general but tried these because I bought a horrible tasting protein powder and wanted to use it for something. But I am so pleasantly surprised that these are such a treat! And I couldn’t taste the protein powder at all! Big win
Hands down the best snack!!! I always prep these on Sunday to have in the refrigerator for the week.
This is a go-to recipe for me to have ready to eat in my fridge, post-workout or as a mid-day snack! 3rd time making them and, of course, had to sub a couple ingredients for what I had on hand and they still turned out DELISH.
Does anyone know the calories per bar and the nutritional break down?
Hi! Can i use a mixture of coconut, almond and oat flour instead? And replace pb with ab? Been trying to find a perfect bar recipe so that I can save some $$$😂…
Does anyone have the macro/nutrition breakdown for these? Thank you!
How long do they keep for in the fridge? Can you freeze them? They look so delish but I’m not sure I can finish a whole batch in a week.
I LOVE these peanut butter protein bars! I keep them in my fridge all the time. I have also shared this receipt with friends and family and they all love them too!
