Peanut Butter Brownie Protein Bars

We’ve had a couple of people ask us what protein bars are the “best” out there to buy, and to be honest, protein bars are usually have so much sugar they are basically like eating a candy bar. So, we suggest making your own!  These peanut butter brownie protein bars are the perfect on-the-go breakfast or snack. They also double as a great treat to pack in lunches for your children or for those who are looking for something sweet. They’re made with no added sugar, and they’re full of healthy fat and protein.
 
 

Peanut Butter Brownie Protein Bars

For the chocolate layer
  • 2/3 cup oat flour
  • 1 scoop protein powder (we used Trutein Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup)
  • 3 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder (we used Hersheys Special Dark)
  • 1/2 cup liquid egg substitute
  • 1/4 cup water or milk of choice
  • 1/4 cup baking stevia
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp apple cider vinegar
For the peanut butter layer
  • 1/3 cup oat flour
  • 1/4 cup peanut butter
  • 1 tbs vanilla protein powder
  • 1/4 cup liquid egg substitute
  • 1/4 cup water or milk of choice
  • 1/4 cup baking stevia
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp apple cider vinegar
Preheat oven to 350 degrees and spray an 8 x 8 baking dish with non-stick spray. In a medium bowl, combine all ingredients for the chocolate layer and beat well with a mixer. Pour into your pan and bake for 8 minutes. While the chocolate layer is baking, combine peanut butter, egg, stevia, and vanilla and beat well. Slowly add your dry ingredients and water, and beat until well combined. Remove chocolate layer from the oven, and pour peanut butter batter over the top. Place pan back into the oven for another 6-8 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Enjoy!
