These Healthy Peanut Butter & Jelly DIY Protein Bars are the perfect snack for when you’re craving something rich and sweet, but don’t want all the excess calories, fat, and sugar.

Just look at that texture! These Healthy Peanut Butter & Jelly DIY Protein Bars are literally TO DIE FOR!
These easy, no-bake Healthy Peanut Butter & Jelly DIY Protein Bars are not only fudgy, sweet, and delicious, but sugar free, gluten free, and vegan too!
- 210g (1¾ cups) Peanut Flour
- 168g (1¼ cups, lightly packed) Vanilla Brown Rice Protein Powder
- ½ cup Old Fashioned Rolled Oats
- ¼ tsp Salt
- 2 cups Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk
- 128g (½ cup) Natural Peanut Butter (no sugar or oil added)
- 1 tsp Vanilla Creme-Flavored Stevia Extract
- ½ tsp Natural Strawberry Flavor
- 2 oz Freeze-Dried Raspberries
Line a 9x9” brownie pan with parchment paper. Set aside.
In an electric stand mixer bowl fitted with a beater attachment, add all of the ingredients except for the freeze-dried raspberries. Mix on low speed until everything is fully incorporated. Scrape down the sides of the bowl.
Add in the freeze-dried raspberries and mix on medium-low speed for one last mix. Mixture should be thick and fudgy, like cookie dough. Scoop the mixture into the brownie pan and flatten it out. Tightly cover the pan with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight.
Lift the mixture out of the pan. Slice into 12 bars. Individually wrap the protein bars in plastic sandwich baggies. Keeps in the refrigerator for ~1 week, or in the freezer for up to 3 months.

I’m not sure if you can really tell by the pictures, but these protein bars are HUGE. They’re super thick, and much, much larger than the puny bars you can buy from the store. The fact that these massive and delicious treats are only 220 calories with 8g of fat and 13g of carbs literally blows my mind. Plus, each bar is jam-packed with 23g of complete protein and 6g of filling fiber! 💪💥
If you’re always up for more peanut butter flavor (and WHO ISN’T???), feel free to add in a handful of roasted peanuts to the recipe! Or if you’re feelin’ frisky, consider throwing in a handful of mini chocolate chips 🍫
With love and good eats,
@_lee__lee_x made a batch! How good do these look??
