How To Make Quick Baked PROTEIN Bars

Quick Baked Protein Bars Recipe
Written by The Protein Chef

Something you guys have asked me to do for awhile now is make MORE protein bar recipes so today we’re gonna make it happen and with 6 ingredients or less that you probably already have on hand. Super simple AND super easy!

Take out a bowl then pick your flavor. As long as you use a good tasting protein powder, that’s all you need to flavor these. Add in around 2-3 scoops or 90 grams of your choice flavor, 1/4 cup of coconut or almond flour, 6 tablespoons of peanut butter (CHUNKY!), 4 ounces of cream cheese (full, reduced, or fat free is up to you), and 1/4 cup of unsweetened almond milk. Mix everything together until smooth, take out a baking pan, line it with some parchment paper, and add your mix in. Wet your hand a bit so it doesn’t get too sticky and evenly flatten out your mix. Top them with whatever you want and throw them in the oven on 350F/176C for around 10 minutes.

So there you go, quick 6 (or less) ingredient baked protein bars that won’t fall apart on you and don’t need to be refrigerated! Let me know what your favorite flavor OR toppings are below in the comments!
