Why a High Protein Snack?
Our bodies need protein! Women need a lot of it, especially for energy.
If you find yourself snacking throughout the day, protein can easily help with that. Think of it like this — if you eat a slice of pizza or a bag of chips, it’s hard to stop! Well, if you eat a steak or chicken breast, don’t you feel full afterwards?
With that protein comes energy, so try to workout for at least ten minutes after eating so that you put your body in fat burning mode and increase lean muscle production!

How to Make Protein Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars
Now, how to make these bad boys.
- Make the peanut butter layer. In a large bowl combine the peanut butter, protein, collagen, vanilla, and sweetener.
Tip: melt the peanut butter slightly so it’s easier to mix!
- Pour into a wax paper lined container (I used an 8×8 dish).
- Melt chocolate chips and coconut oil in the microwave or stovetop in 30 second increments, stirring in between, and pour on top of the peanut layer.
Sprinkle with sea salt.
- Freeze for an hour, cut into slices and enjoy!
How to Store Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars?
Keep the bars stored in the fridge, chilled or in the freezer in an air tight container. If left on the counter, they will begin to melt.
Similarly to these cheesecake fat bombs, storing in the freezer is best.
They will keep for 3-6 months frozen!
Be sure to cut the bars into your preferred portion sizes before freezing.
