We are well into spring and I’ve been craving snacks that provide me with enough energy to get through the day.  What I love about this healthy snack is that it’s a no-bake option that is loaded with healthy coconut flour, honey, dark chocolate, and peanut butter.

A few months ago I made Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Energy Bites and they were a huge hit.  I sent some home to my mom and since then we’ve both been trying our hands at new recipes.  Since then, I’ve been wanting to make those energy bites into bars and I finally made the perfect recipe to share.

Both convenient with time and ingredients these peanut butter bars come together in just minutes. It also makes a batch large enough to get through a busy week.  I like to package these up in bags and store in the refrigerate until I’m ready to take it on the go or have one at home before working out.

I’ve lightened up a classic peanut butter bars and made it into a protein-rich snack that won’t break any rules!  This recipe is made with coconut flour, honey, dark chocolate, LIVfit Superfood® Organic Superfood Blend for added protein, and BetterBody Foods PBfit® Powder.  The protein powder from BetterBody Foods has no sugar, artificial colors, flavors or sweeteners.  In fact, it’s made with a handful of fresh fruits and vegetables and it’s free of allergens like gluten, dairy, and soy.  I love to add a few scoops to baked goods, and smoothies for a nutrient-dense meal.

Both BetterBody Foods PBfit® Powder and the chocolate peanut butter version have a significant amount of less fat than traditional peanut butter.  This powder is one of my favorite items from BetterBody Foods.  It’s easy to substitute in recipes that call for peanut butter because this powder turns into peanut butter with water.

    What a great recipe as summer is coming around and there are lots of sports activities with kids. I like the idea of children snacking on something that is good for them but also satisfying. The bars will surely be a big hit with the grandsons.
