I am a Premier Protein ambassador. I am compensated to share Premier Protein products. All opinions are my own. If I hated it, I'd tell you.
I had this protein bar recipe that was my 'ol standby. It was a delicious recipe, but it bothered me that it used a lot of honey. Honey has 16 grams of sugar per tablespoon and this recipe called for a whole cup. For a healthy recipe that is relatively high sugar content. I thought I would try to cut the recipe in half, make thinner bars and use half the honey. It was kind of a disaster. I guess the honey was literally the glue that held it all together, without the glue, the bars were a crumby mess. Fail.
Like any good blogger, I posted my protein bar fail on Instagram and runs_with_a_beard offered a solution to my problem. He suggested using a powdered peanut butter like PB2, because "when you add water, it sticks like brick mortar" he said.
I altered my recipe to use just a tablespoon of honey, added PB2 and removed the regular peanut butter and the result was delicious.
CHOCOLATE PROTEIN BITES RECIPE1 cup uncooked old fashioned oats
1 cup of chocolate Premier Protein powder
1 tablespoon of honey
1/4 cup of walnuts (optional)
1/4 cup of powdered peanut butter (like PB2)
2 Tbsp coconut flakes
Mix all the ingredients in a bowl and slowly add a little water until the powdered peanut butter gets sticky. Shape into balls and place in the fridge to set.
The mixture was a little too sticky, so I had to wet my hands to shape the balls. I placed them on parchment paper and left in fridge for a few hours to set.
The result was delicious!
