On Pinterest, there is this picture of a chocolate and peanut butter protein bar that looks beyond delicious.

Peanut Butter Chocolate Protein Bars

Unfortunately, when I go to the website to see the recipe, it’s GONE.

As of this writing, the entire website is gone, so I looked to see if Google has anything in their cache to make these protein bars. They did!

Here’s the recipe, just in case it disappears altogether:

Bar Ingredients:

  • 1 2/3 cup (about 160g) chocolate protein powder (protein powder is already sweetened, so no need for extra sweetener)
  • 1/4 cup peanut flour
  • 2 Tablespoons dutch process cocoa
  • 1/4 cup (2oz) unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup natural peanut butter (no sugar, no salt)
  • 1/4 cup half & half
  • 1/4 cup water

Topping Ingredients:

  • 1/4 cup natural peanut butter (no sugar, no salt)
  • 1 Tablespoon (0.5oz) unsalted butter
  • 2 Tablespoons half & half
  • 2 Tablespoons Splenda (or sweetener of your choice)

Bar Instructions

  • Line bottom of an 8×8 square baking pan with parchment. Set aside.
  • In medium sized bowl add protein powder, peanut flour, and cocoa powder. Set aside.
  • In small bowl add butter and peanut butter. Heat in microwave until melted, about 45 seconds.
  • Stir until combined.
  • Stir in half & half and water.
  • Mix wet mixture into your dry ingredients. Stir until smooth. (Batter WILL be VERY sticky!)
  • Pour into your prepared pan. Smooth evenly in pan with an offset spatula.
  • Set aside.

Topping Instructions

  • In a small bowl mix cream and splenda. Stir until splenda is dissolved. Set aside.
  • In small bowl heat peanut butter and butter in microwave until melted.
  • Stir in cream/splenda mixture to your peanut butter/butter. Mix until smooth.
  • Pour on top of protein bars and smooth evenly.


  • Place pan in freezer for at least 1 hour to set.
  • Take out cut into 8 equal pieces.
  • Store in air tight container or baggie in freezer until needed.

    Oh my goodness! Thank you so much for locating this. Another pinner posted a comment on the recipe that I have on Pinterest to let me know it was gone. I will now have to go to Google Cache and look up the other one’s of hers.

    Thank you SO much for finding this. I pinned this recipe a while ago but I deleted it since the link didnt exist. I can’t wait to make these. I love PB and chocolate recipes, especially healthy ones! 🙂

    Thanks from me, also…searching for a long time…

  7. Kara Says:

    Im wondering about the carb count on these bars....when I figure it according to the ingredients it comes to 91 carbs for the 8x8 pan. That is 10.55 carbs if you divide them by 9 bars. Thats alot higher than the 3.88 that is says here. Maybe I`m not using the right kind of protein powder? Mine has 9 grams of carbs per packet.

    What is the 6th ingredient? 1/4 cup of Half and half?

  9. Melanie Says:

    Also, I’m in lower NSW – Australia, where can I get peanut flour from?

  10. Laura Moncur Says:


    Peanut flour is peanuts that have been blended in the blender until they are soft like a flour. If you do too much, it becomes peanut butter. Just pulse the blender until they are broken apart, but not so much that they release the oils and become butter.

    Half and Half is a dairy product that is half milk and half cream. In the states, we can buy it in the grocery store, but you can do the same with 1 TBSP of milk and 1 TBSP of cream.

    Best, Laura

    Could almond flour be used instead of peanut flour?

  12. Kate Says:

    Sounds delicious! I’m going to try this recipe but attempt to make it vegan. I’ve calculated that replacing the half and half with unsweetened chocolate almond milk, and replacing the natural peanut butter for PB2, will take almost 1,000 calories from the entire recipe or about 120 calories from each bar.

  13. Dru Says:

    I like Kate’s idea to reduce calories a bit. Has anyone tried using coconut oil instead of butter?
