Our Favorite Chocolate Peanut Butter Protein Bars
2 C Creamy Peanut Butter
1 C Local Honey
1 1/2 C Gluten-Free Old Fashion Rolled Oats (we love Bob’s Red Mill)
1 C Crushed Gluten-Free Chex Cereal
4 scoops Jay Robb Chocolate Egg White Protein Powder or Organ Organic Protein Powder (chocolate or peanut butter cup)
1/2 c *Optional* Enjoy Life Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips (gluten, dairy, nut and soy-free)
Optional Fun: Add sprinkles or shredded coconut on chocolate layer
On stovetop or in a large microwave safe bowl, warm peanut butter until it's extra creamy (microwave-about 30 seconds)
Add honey (if microwaving, heat for an additional 30 seconds)
Stir oatmeal, rice cereal and protein powder together before adding to the peanut butter and honey mixture - this will come together very thick and sticky.

Pour mixture into a 9×13″ pan and spread until even
