Peanut Butter Protein Bars
Can’t get enough peanut butter? These bars make a healthy and satisfying snack any time of day. These are a great option for a bed-time snack as they are filled with protein and fiber, and a great way to get in some of those extra calories needed to help sustain a healthy pregnancy in the second and third trimesters.
Serves 12 / Prep time: 25 minutes
1. Coat a 9-by-9-inch baking dish with olive oil and set aside.
2. Preheat oven to 325°F.
3. In a small saucepan, combine maple syrup, peanut butter, almond milk, protein powder, coconut oil, and vanilla.
4. Stir together and cook over medium-low until mixture just begins to bubble, 2 to 3 minutes.
5. In a large bowl, combine oats, puffed rice, peanuts, banana chips, pumpkin seeds, and salt. Toss well.
6. Pour warm peanut butter mixture over oatmeal mixture and stir with a spatula until combined.
7. Transfer to prepared baking dish and press firmly into dish.
8. Bake for 15 minutes. Remove from the oven, let cool completely cut into bars.
