Healthy Chubby Hubby DIY Protein Bars (+ Video!)
I have been pretty busy lately so I’m falling back in love with quick and easy “grab and go” snacks. Scratch that, I meant “snack.” No plural there, because these Healthy Chubby Hubby DIY Protein Bars are pretty much the ONLY thing I think about when I’m in a hurry with a stomach that is growling at me like my dog growls at vacuums.
I love peanut butter, I love chocolate, and I love pretzels — that means I love that famous Chubby Hubby flavor combo. So I made it into protein bars. DIY Protein Bars, that is!
And these are kind of oxymorons, because these totally won’t make you chubby.
Unlike the Ben & Jerry’s Chubby Hubby ice cream, which contains refined flour, butter, and a ton of bleached sugar (sugar is both the 3rd and 5th ingredients), these Healthy Chubby Hubby DIY Protein Bars are low in sugar, high in protein and high in fiber. And, if you choose to use gluten-free and/or vegan pretzels, then they’ll be gluten-free and vegan too!
So indulge in these (secretly) Healthy Chubby Hubby DIY Protein Bars. They are easy to make, totally craving-worthy, and 100% healthy.

Watch me make these Chubby Hubby DIY Protein Bars on camera:
As noted ** in the recipe, I’ve tested this recipe using a few different kinds of pretzels. I’ve used Mary’s Gone Crackers® sea salt pretzel sticks (organic, whole grain, gluten-free). I’ve also used Newman’s Own® salted pretzel rods (organic), as well as grocery store brand pretzel sticks. Pretzel rods are the way to go because they stay the crunchiest the longest.
I am so incredibly lucky to be a part of such a loving, adoring, and supportive online community. Here is one of my favorite pictures a reader tagged me in on social media of her Healthy Chubby Hubby DIY Protein Bar remake!
Instead of a chocolate drizzle and pretzels on top, she used chocolate chips and pretzels inside the protein bars. A very good way to do it, indeed.
Eat protein bars.
