Healthy Living Recipes : Peanut Butter Protein Bars

If you haven't noticed by now, I have a serious sweet tooth sometimes. Being a healthier me means that I have cut sweets mostly out of my diet, but I love experimenting with recipes that allow me to have the sugar that I need, that also isn't bad for me. I found this recipe on IG, and changed it slightly just by my own judgement. Here's what you'll need for the recipe, and enjoy!

You first want to mix all of your ingredients, except for the chocolate and start kneading it together like a pizza dough (see below for photo). It's going to be pretty thick because of the peanut butter but if you continue to work it through, you can make it mold into any container. Once you get it into a ball, cover and put it in the freezer for 20 minutes. At this point, it's going to get cold and all of the ingredients will stick together, making it easier to spread.

I used a small tupperware container that was rectangle shaped, and lined the inside with cling wrap(this is important because the peanut butter won't stick!). You then want to put your peanut butter mold into the tupperware or container and push it in so it fills the space. 

Then you want to melt your chocolate. I used a pyrex measuring tool to melt mine. First put it in the microwave for a minute, and stir. Then continue to melt by putting it back in the microwave on 10-15 second intervals. This will guarantee that your chocolate doesn't burn or stick, make sure you stir it well! Once it is fully melted you can pour it on top of your peanut butter mixture, cover it and stick it back into the freezer for two hours. 

You may have to wait a while before cutting it, so let it thaw out and voila! You're ready to enjoy!

Yummy!
