It’s no secret; I love peanut butter and chocolate.

Don’t tell anyone but it’s a nice change from all the pumpkin recipes I’ve been pumping out lately. See what I did there?

 

The other day I stumbled on a great Instagram account @eatingbrofood (you should go follow her) and she posted a protein bar recipe that she made in her food processor and I was absolutely dumb founded. Why I have never thought to put any of my simple protein bar recipes into a food processor is beyond me! Have you ever tried to hand mix peanut butter, whey protein and sticky syrup to make a protein bar? It’s not easy and requires a little more effort than one would think. Her simple idea got me so excited that I had to make protein bars right away.

 

Behold, peanut butter (because duh!) protein bars topped with peanut peanuts and sugar free chocolate.
