Chocolate Peanut Breakfast Protein Bars

Chocolate Peanut Breakfast Protein Bars - a yummy breakfast or snack, full of protein and healthy wholesome ingredients! | tastythin.com

Looking for a quick to-go breakfast/snack recipe that everyone will adore?  These Chocolate Peanut Breakfast Protein Bars are a great alternative to store bought granola bars and contain no refined sugar or gluten.  This is a great way to get your kids to eat healthier fats like almond butter AND get a dose of Omega-3 and fiber from some flax.  They also offer a huge punch of protein and just the right amount of sweetness.  Oh, and who doesn’t love chocolate and peanuts together???

This is a no-bake recipe and done in about 5 minutes.  No joke.  Or feel free to take a few extra minutes and shape them into cute little bite sized balls if you prefer.  I like the quick slap-it-in-a-pan method, myself.  You can customize this recipe by using peanut butter instead of almond butter or other types of nuts/dried fruit in place of the peanuts.  Yum!  Whip these up and your kids will be happy. 🙂

    Thanks for the healthy recipes. I was wondering if you have determined the nutritional values of your recipes. Calories, sodium, etc would really be nice to see.
