Peanut Butter and Jelly Protein Bars made the perfect snack! I love to snack a lot already and lately, I have been working out even more so I need a boost of protein. I’m not the best about eating high protein foods so these easy to grab protein bars are perfect. I wanted to go all out so I made these bars 3 layers with a layer of the chewy peanut butter blueberry protein bar, a layer with blueberry chia jelly and a layer of crunchy salty peanuts. I love that these protein bars only have 6 ingredients. These are the best bars I have ever had- all 3 layers paired together are just the best.

PB + J Protein Bars

Back in September, we joined a gym for the first time. I have been going to high intensity workout classes 2-3 times a week and love them so much! I can’t get enough. I am challenging my body, socializing a bit and truly feel by best afterwards. It is so good for me. I come home at 7 AM after the class super hungry and one of these bars makes the perfect post-workout snack or I love them late morning when I find myself extra snacky. 

Peanut Butter and Blueberry Bars

I was already a huge fan of the Naked PB which is delicious in oatmeal and smoothies and now, I want to introduce you to the delicious Naked Shake in Peanut Butter Blueberry. It is a vegan protein powder made with pea protein, MCT oil, peanut butter powder and blueberry juice. It helps make these protein bars amazing! The flavor is so good. Not like your typical protein powder- it has an awesome texture too. If you don’t have the Naked Shake on hand, you can use the Naked PB powder instead to make these bars. This shake mix has 20 grams of protein and 5 grams of sugar.

How to Make Peanut Butter and Jelly Protein Bars

These bars are easy to make! Despite them having 3 layers, they come together in no time and are super simple. If you want to keep them even simpler, you can just make the peanut butter bar layer and they are great like that. First, microwave blueberries with chia seeds for 2 minutes in a microwave safe bowl. Mash with a fork and set aside to thicken. Then, mix together all of the ingredients for the protein bar layer until a dough forms. Press down onto a piece of parchment paper lined 8 x 8 dish. Top with the thickened blueberry chia layer and top with peanut halves. Let chill in the fridge until firm and then cut into bars.

Yield: 6 large bars or 12 small bars
