Chocolate Peanut Low Carb Protein Bar Recipe

This low carb protein bar recipe is super easy and quick to make (no bake protein bars like these ones are great that way!) – and easy to modify with other ingredients if you like. It’s a great basic chocolate protein bar recipe, with some chopped peanuts and raw cacao nibs for some crunch, hope you enjoy!

Since it’s been awhile since my last recipe post, I thought I’d start from the very beginning and share a few of my first recipes. There’s no pictures for most of them since I didn’t think I’d be sharing them with you guys at the time that I made them! When I make them again I’ll take some pics and add them for you.

So here are the humble beginnings of my protein baking journey, the very first protein recipe I made – well actually, it’s the second, but it’s the first of my own recipes. The first one I made I’ll share in the next post. But anyway, without further adieu, I present my chocolate peanut low carb protein bar recipe!

This low carb protein bar recipe is an easy no bake protein bars recipe that's great for learning how to make protein bars. Healthy and oh so delicious!
(makes 4 no bake protein bars)
  • 3 Tbsp peanut butter
  • ⅛ – ¼ cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 4 scoops (120 grams) chocolate whey protein powder (I used Whey Gourmet)
  • 2 Tbsp (15g) cacao nibs (you can also use chocolate chips if you like)
  • 2 Tbsp (14g) unsalted chopped peanuts
  1. Start with measuring out the peanut butter with a tablespoon or scale, and place in medium sized mixing bowl.
  2. Slowly mix in ⅛ cup of almond milk (you may need to add more later, but if you add too much, it will be a wet sticky mess).
  3. Next, stir in the protein powder, scoop by scoop with a fork. Add in more almond milk if necessary.
  4. Mix in the peanuts and cacao nibs, form into 4 balls, and then shape into protein bars.
  5. It will be a bit of a difficult stir towards the end as this stuff is pretty thick, and it’s probably gonna be annoying to scrub off the bowl after, so don’t say I didn’t warn you! This low carb protein bar recipe is worth it though in my opinion :)
  6. You can wrap the protein bars in plastic wrap, or baggies, just don’t leave them out, and make sure to eat them within a few days as they will dry the heck out otherwise. I’m considering vacuum sealing them the next time so I can make a big batch to have around for a few weeks.
