Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Protein Bars

This spring and summer, I’ve developed a love for creating and developing my own recipes! I’m planning to share many of them with you and am choosing to start with these delicious bars. My parents and Kyle taste tested them and Kyle remarked that they are similar to Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups with a liiiittle less chocolate – quite the compliment 🙂 They are a little sticky so be ready to lick your fingers clean or have a wipe nearby. 

Enjoy my homemade Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Protein Bars. They are perfect for an energy boost, an afternoon snack, and even dessert too!

7. Put the cover on the dish and place in freezer.

8. Freeze for at least 3 hours.

9. Take out of freezer and thaw for 30 minutes.

10. Cut into 8 even bars. Place uneaten bars back into freezer.

*You can leave the bars in the dish to put back in the freezer, or wrap each bar in tin foil so thawing individual pieces is much easier!
