No Bake Peanut Butter Protein Bars (V, DF, GF)

Jump to Recipe
We can’t help it, we love love love granola bars round here!

They are easy to make, easy to grab as a snack on the go, customizable and can be frozen for eating later as well.

One more tip too! Sometimes I take all the bars I have stored in the freezer, crumble them up in my food processor, bake the crumbles in my oven until crisp and then I have instant granola!

So many options for your oats.

Granola Bars Galore

Is there every too much of a good granola bar? We think not. That is why we have so many options on our blog for you to try!

And more. Just search oats on our blog. There is a flavor for anyone to try!

No Oil, No Refined Sugar – LOTS OF TASTE!

Yes you read that correctly, these bars have no oil, no refined sugar and still pull off that full of flavor granola bar which is a must in my book.

We used only unsweetened applesauce and agave to give these flavor + lowered the fat by using powered peanut butter instead of regular peanut butter.

Coconut milk powder adds another layer of flavor and texture to hold the bars together.

Let’s Make Granola Bars!
We used this fun granola bar pan to make these bar! You can get your own official Granola Bar Pan at this link here.

Or you can use a 11×7 rectangular pan and cut them into 12 even bars.
Either way they are delicious! Store in fridge or FREEZE them for a cold treat!

If you make these bars, we would love to know! Tag @badtothebowl or #badtothebowl and let us know how they turned out for you!
