Peanut Butter Krispie Protein Bars


 I really like peanut butter.

Especially slightly salty, sweet peanut butter.

When I made this recipe and found that it was not only salty/sweet, but slightly crunch and chewy my day went from average to exciting.

If you are looking for a quick, healthy, on-the-go protein bar fix, this one is for you! It is super easy to make and pretty inexpensive too! In my book, that is a win, win! So, without further ado, here is the recipe!

Peanut Butter Krispie Protein Bars

1 c. all- natural peanut butter

3/4 c. honey

1 c. oats

1 c. protein powder (I used vanilla whey)

1. c rice cereal (rice krispies, rice chex, etc.)

2 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract

1/2 c. flax-seed

2/3 c. chocolate chips (optional)


Combine oats, protein powder, flax-seed, and cereal in large bowl. Set aside.

Bring honey to a boil on the stove. Remove from heat and stir in peanut butter and vanilla until smooth. (Try not to eat it all at this point!) 😉

Immediately add honey mixture to oats/whey/flax/cereal. Stir until combined.

If adding chocolate chips, stir in and press into 8 x 8 square pan. Refrigerate 20 minutes or until firm. Cut into 12 bars and serve. Store bars in an airtight container.


Almond butter instead of peanut butter

Raisins instead of chocolate chips

Add nuts/shredded coconut/ etc.

These bars are so quick, easy, and convenient for traveling, pre- workout or post-workout, or even a fast breakfast! Hope you all enjoy them as much as we do!

Oh taste and see that the Lord is good! Blessed is the man who takes refuge in Him.”
