Written by The Protein Chef

These quick, macro-friendly, and DELICIOUS Protein Peanut Butter Squares are a great way to kill a sweet tooth, eat on the go, or get some extra calories in!

Here is the recipe:

  • 16 Ounces (454g) Reduced Sodium Chickpeas
  • 6 Tablespoons (96g) Peanut Butter (or Any Other Nut Butter)
  • 2 Teaspoons Vanilla Extract
  • 2 Tablespoons (44g) Brown Rice Syrup (or Honey/Maple Syrup)
  • 3 Scoops (120g) Labrada Nutrition Lean Body Natural Natural Vanilla Protein Powder
  • 1 Teaspoon Baking Powder
  • 1 1/2 Tablespoons (22.5g) Dark Chocolate Chips

Calories in the WHOLE recipe:

  • Calories: 1764
  • Fat: 72g
  • Saturated Fat: 14g
  • Sodium: 1570mg
  • Carbs: 157g
  • Fiber: 37g
  • Sugar: 43g
  • Protein: 122g

Drain and rinse your Chickpeas. Add all of your ingredients aside from your Dark Chocolate Chips into either a food processor or really powerful blender. Process or blend everything together. Take out a baking pan, coat it with some non-stick cooking spray, and pour your mix in. Top your squares with your Dark Chocolate Chips then put them into the oven on 350°F/176°C for 20:00-25:00. Mouthgasm!


  • You can store these at room temperature and they’ll usually last around 5-7 days!
  • Top or add in anything else you want if you don’t like dark chocolate!
  • The mix will be super sticky so keep your hands damp while adding it into your pan!

  • Very good bars and they will be a welcome addition beside my Buffalo ranch chicken meatballs for lunches. The mix is VERY thick though, and my Ninja processor was no match:( I will be investing in a new power blender!
