Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Protein Bars

Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Protein Bars

I live a crazy hectic lifestyle and I NEED to eat every 2-3 hrs or I get very cranky! I love my protein bars, but it does get pretty expensive when I rely on store bought bars to get me through my week. I have created a few protein bar recipes, all with different flavors and textures. You will have to let me know what you think! Lets start from the beginning, shall we?

  • Gather all ingredients. Prepare a large cookie sheet with parchment or wax paper, covering the top of sheet.
  • Put Kashi cereal into food processor and grind up for a few seconds until finely ground.
Make sure to get this "flavor/type" of Kashi!

A little crunchy and a little powdery.

The texture should be little crunchy and a little powdery.

  • Pour cereal into a large bowl and add the remaining ingredients except for the coconut oil. Mix well with hands.
  • Scoop coconut oil into a small dish and microwave for about 15 seconds until melted.
  • Pour oil into bowl and mix well into the other ingredients with hands. The mixture will harden up pretty quickly, so mix quick!
  • Spread mixture onto prepared cookie sheet and press down firmly.
Push it down, as level as possible, onto parchment or wax paper.

  • Place the cookie sheet in the freezer for 15 minutes, until bars are completely firm.
  • Take out of the freezer and cut into equal bars (using a large knife).
  • Individually wrap the bars in seran wrap or ziploc baggie for easy access throughout the week. Keep refridgerated until ready to eat.
Would be fine to keep out of the fridge for an hr or so:)

  1. These are crazy easy to make. I did it today in no time. One question I think the van protein mix was a little strong could I decrease it to 3 scoops or does that lower the protein value to much?

    • I would decrease the protein to no less than 4 scoops and you will have to add another 1/2 cup or so of kashi cereal to balance out the texture difference. Glad you gave them a try! Thanks:)
