The team at Labrada was kind enough to send over some of their Jamie Eason Lean Body protein powders, and they are delicious! I have already made PB&J Protein Cupcakes with the Peanut Protein, but I’ve been wanting to combine it with their Chocolate Whey Protein Isolate. Chocolate and peanut butter, does it get any better?!? Well, yes, when you add banana!

By now you know that I like my recipes simple, so this recipe calls for peanut protein, chocolate whey, mashed banana, and coconut flour. That’s it! The coconut flour is there to dry out the mix so it can be formed into bars, but it really doesn’t add any flavor. It adds some fiber, though, and that’s always a plus! The peanut protein adds the flavor of a sweet peanut butter, but without all the fat!

These Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Protein Bars are great to have on hand in the fridge. Make a batch or two ahead of time, and you’ll always have a delicious protein treat to go!

Ingredients
Instructions
  1. Mix banana with whey protein until combined.
  2. Add peanut protein and coconut flour, and mix well.
  3. Form the batter into a rectangle. If you have time, let it firm up in the fridge for an hour to make cleaner cuts.
  4. Cut into 4 bars with a sharp knife.
  5. For bars that aren't sticky to the touch, wrap them loosely in parchment and store in the fridge for several hours. After the outside dries, store in an airtight container, if you prefer.
  6. Enjoy!
Notes
A note about substitutions: because each type of protein powder has a distinct texture, I would not try substituting different types of protein powders in this recipe. (See my Recipe Basics video for examples of what goes wrong when you use the wrong protein powder.)
