These easy protein bars are healthy, gluten-free, and have no artificial sugar added! I love them as an after-school snack for the kiddos. A little chocolate never hurt, right?!


1/2 cup peanut butter
1 cup super fine almond flour
1/2 cup whey protein
1/3 cup whole milk
2 tablespoons honey
1/4 cup dried cherries
1/4 cup roasted peanuts
2 tablespoons sesame seeds
8 ounces semi-sweet chocolate, melted


  1. In a mixer with the paddle attachment (or with a sturdy spoon) mix together the peanut butter, protein powder, almond flour, honey, and milk, until the mixture is smooth.
  2. Pack mixture into an 8×8 baking dish lined with wax paper for easy removal. Press on peanuts, sesame seeds, and dried cherries so the toppings stick. Chill in the fridge for around an hour.
  3. Cut the bars into the size you would like. For kid-sized bars, I get 15 bars out of the batch.
  4. Melt your chocolate over a double boiler or in quick 15-second bursts in the microwave and then dip the bars in the chocolate. Drizzle extra chocolate over the top. Return bars to the fridge to set the chocolate and firm up the bars.
  5. Store bars in the fridge for 10-14 days. They will stay firmer in the fridge.
