My husband and I both enjoy lifting weights and he participates in body building competitions so we are always looking for more ways to add protein to our diet. These No Bake Chocolate Peanut Butter Protein Bars are super easy to make and use dates for sweetness. They will be great for breakfast, an on the go snack or a little guilt free dessert!

How to make No Bake Chocolate Peanut Butter Protein Bars
You’ll want a blender or food processor for these to chop up the dates. Once you’ve blended up those to a paste you add the remaining ingredients and blend until combined.
If the mixture is too wet add a little more protein powder or if it is too dry then add a bit more water. You can use any protein brand that you prefer since they aren’t going to be baked. Our personal favorite is this one.
Next, press them into an 8 x 8 inch pan that is lined with parchment paper.
Let them set up in the refrigerator for an hour or so until they are firm and then slice them into 16 squares. Store in the refrigerator for 1 week in an airtight container. Serve and enjoy!
