Peanut Butter Bars

As you can probably tell…I have a slight (sick) obsession with PEANUT BUTTER!!! I love love love it. However, since eating it by the spoonful is not the best idea, a baked peanut butter bar is the next best option. Feel free to add cocoa powder to make this chocolate as well…?? 🙂

Ingredients: (makes 16 bars)

  • 1/3 cup ground flaxseed
  • 1/8 cup coconut flour
  • 1.5 scoops (60g) (vanilla) whey/casein protein powder
  • 1/3 cup Baking Stevia
  • 1/2 cup PB2/peanut flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/3 cup (or 2) egg whites
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce (or can sub mashed banana)
  • 1/2 cup plain nonfat greek yogurt
  • 1 Tbsp (16g) all natural peanut butter
  • 1 Tbsp (14g) mini chocolate chips

Substitutions: Use all applesauce or banana in place of yogurt to make dairy free (nutrition will change)

Mix all dry ingredients in a mixing bowl. Then add wet ingredients and blend well. Pour into a well sprayed baking dish (I used a 9×9 square Pyrex).

Bake at 350F for about 30 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean. Enjoy as an on-the-go snack, and feel free to top with more PB if needed 🙂
