Do you love chocolate? Do you love peanut butter? And, obviously you gotta love fudge, so we piled them all together for these Chocolate Peanut Butter Fudge Protein Bars.
Chocolate Peanut Butter Fudge Protein Bars
When you bite into these, you will see why we call them fudge protein bars. They have an amazing fudge texture.
Packed with protein
There are 17g of protein in each. Now I don't know about you guys, but a chocolate peanut butter fudge protein bar or a chalky, store bought protein bar with more fat and calories, less protein, and less flavor. We will let you make that decision.
Do NOT use whey protein
Whey protein absorbs liquid differently than a whey + casein blend. They will be sticky and not the correct consistency with a pure whey protein. They casein in our ONE Protein absorbs more liquid and helps give them the fudge consistency.
2 scoops (68g) ONE Protein, chocolate brownie
¾ cup (100g) peanut flour (PB Fit / PB2)
½ cup (120mL) unsweetened almond milk (or preferred milk)
¼ cup (60g) dark chocolate chips, melted
Christmas sprinkles for topping
*Must be ONE Protein, or another whey + casein blend protein. A pure whey protein will not work in this recipe.
- Add protein powder, peanut flour, and salt to a large bowl. In a separate microwave safe bowl, add chocolate chips.
- Heat in the microwave for 60 seconds, stir, and heat for another 30 seconds if needed to completely melt. Stir almond milk into the melted chocolate chips.
- Pour over dry ingredients. Mix together until a thick, almost cookie dough texture forms. Press into a 5x9 glass baking dish or pan.
- Place in the freezer for 15-20 minutes to chill and set up. Cut into 6 bars and enjoy!
