A Protein-Rich Snack Unlike Any Other
Your body needs protein to keep the cells, tissues, and organs healthy.
Unfortunately, not many people are getting enough protein in their diet. They may be missing out on essential nutrients, as well, and that’s where the problem starts.
The more you deprive yourself of nutrients, the more your body suffers. And that is not what God wants for you.
He wants you to thrive and not just be alive. To be glowing with health and not on the brink of death!
That’s why I am on a mission to keep people healthy in any way that I can by sharing these recipes that I have created.
One of these is this no-bake peanut butter bars recipe that’s not just great for those who are trying to lose weight, maintain their ideal weight, but also those people doing the Daniel fast.
Let’s talk about these bars for a bit.
Get Your Protein from Peanuts… And More!
So the primary ingredient of this recipe is a peanut.
As we all know, peanuts are great sources of protein, fiber, B-vitamins, and good fats.
But in addition to the peanuts, these no-bake peanut butter bars also contain a special ingredient.
It takes the protein level way up higher, so you can power up and thrive with every bite of these bars.
It’s called Shaklee soy protein powder, an amazingly high-protein powder that’s made from organic soy and lots of good stuff your body needs.
I’ve always trusted this brand and can really feel the amazing effects in my body and energy level.
With peanuts and protein powder - PLUS oats in these bars, that’s a truly high-protein snack right there!

Yep, that’s it!
Great for athletes, students, gym buffs, and anyone who just wants to munch on something healthy, nutritious, and tasty.
Check out the full recipe below:
No Bake Peanut Butter Bars
- 3/4 cup honey
- 1/2 cup peanut butter
- 2 ½ tsp. vanilla
- 2/3 cup chocolate chips (for full chocolate flavor add to warm peanut butter mix or wait until cool for chocolate chip chunks)
- 1 cup oats or quick oats
- ⅔ cup protein powder
- 1 ½ cup flax cereal
- Heat up the peanut butter and honey. Add vanilla.
- Mix everything up in a bowl.
- If the cereals are too chunky, you can chop them up or grind them before mixing in with the rest of the ingredients. I use a “mini-mill” that grinds up these chunky cereals in seconds, so they're ready to go!
- Make sure all the ingredients are mixed thoroughly.
- Press into an 8x8 pan or scoop small amounts of the mixture into a shaped tray (like in the video) for a little more fun.
- Let the bars firm up in the refrigerator. They should be ready to eat in a few hours.
- Just take them out of the tray or cut into squares when they’re ready, place them in baggies, and this no-bake peanut butter bar is great as a grab-and-go meal for you or healthy breakfast bar, dessert, or a great recipe for kids.
Additional Tips on How to Make the Best No-Bake Protein Peanut Butter Bars
Just a few more things about this no-bake protein bars recipe.
As I’ve mentioned earlier, these bars contain protein powder.
But let me just remind you that when buying protein powder, you need to be cautious and really do your homework first.
Not all protein powders are created equal, and some may not even come from reputable sources.
Be sure to read the labels and always look for organic, non-GMO sources of ingredients. Otherwise, you run the risk of consuming pesticide-heavy soy protein that’s only going to do more harm than good to your body.
For me, there’s only one I trust and that’s Shaklee Soy Protein Powder. I have high regard for this brand because their ingredients are all natural, organic, and proven to be non-GMO. They also use just the finest ingredients, so you can rest easy knowing that your body is receiving only the good stuff.
So there you have it - a truly amazing recipe that will keep you satiated and ready to face each day with so much life, energy, and vitality. Enjoy this dish and I look forward to hearing your feedback on how this recipe turned out for you!
