Low Carb Peanut Butter Protein Bars (THM FP)
Here's the second version of my delicious, protein-packed snack bars - get excited, y'all! ^_^
These come together right in your food processor in a little more than 5 minutes. You can prep them in the morning, and have a high-protein snack for every day of the work week.
Next, with the food processor running, add the extract, oil or butter, and water (one Tbsp at a time) until the mixture starts to stick to itself.
Turn the mixture out onto a baking sheet lined with parchment or a silicone mat. Dampen your hands, press the mixture together, then form into an even rectangle (or any shape that makes it easy to cut and portion).
Refrigerate for about 15-20 minutes, cut into 5 portions, wrap in parchment or plastic wrap, and store in a zip-top bag in the fridge.
Rich, sweet peanutty protein bars that are easy to make, then grab and go.
These bars have become my go-to post-workout snack. It's a needed boost of protein with a nutty, salty kick that keeps my energy level up and my stomach full. They're a delicious, satisfying any time snack you can take anywhere.
