Quick Peanut Butter Bars

Prep time : 10 minutes

Serves: 8


-1 cup dates, soaked in boiling water for 10-15 minutes and drained

-1 tbsp water

-2 tbsp smooth natural peanut butter

-1 tsp vanilla extract

-pinch of sea salt

-1/4 cup protein powder (can substitute with 1/3 cup oat flour + 1 tsp vanilla extract if you don’t have)

-1/3 cup oat flour (can be made using quick oats and a food processor)

-1/3 cup unsalted peanuts

-(optional) Melted Chocolate to drizzle on top


1- In a food processor, mix the dates (drained) , peanut butter, sea salt and 1 tsp vanilla extract. Add in water if you feel the consistency is too thick (should be the consistent of caramel). Set the date caramel aside once smooth.

2- Using 1/4 cup of the date caramel, in a medium bowl gradually add the protein powder and oat flour. The consistency should be flaky but still hold together.

3- On parchment paper, spread the crust into a 1/2 inch thick rectangle. Spread the remaining date caramel on the crust.

4-Sprinkle the peanuts on the caramel (and the melted chocolate) and freeze for an hour. Optional toppings : melted dark chocolate and sea salt.
