Chocolate PB Bites

I created this recipe as a treat bar to help curb my sweet cravings in the afternoon. You know what it's like to set down with an iced coffee and dream about all the sweet things that would go great with it.


I made it a few times and shared the recipe with my sister, Charity. Her husband and family fell in love with them. I think she messaged me at least 4 times for a photo of the recipe again because she didn't write it down. I guess she must like it.


This is a "treat" bar not a eat three at a time bar. Sometimes I cut them even smaller. This bar is a great afternoon protein snack, aka. sweet tooth craving cure.







Chocolate PB Bites

Serves 16


Print Recipe


PB Base

1 cup rolled oats

1 cup Rice Krispies

1 cup peanut butter

½ cup maple syrup

¼ cup collagen protein powder

1 tsp. vanilla

½ tsp. salt


Chocolate Topping

2 cups semi-sweet chocolate

2 tbsp. coconut oil


Flaky sea salt


In a bowl on a stand mixer using the paddle attachment mix all PB base ingredients well.


Line a 9"x9" pan with wax paper. Press peanut butter mixture evenly over the bottom. Set in fridge to chill.


In a microwave-safe bowl add chocolate and coconut oil. Microwave in 30 sec. intervals until just melted. If there are lumps just keep stirring until completely melted. Do NOT overheat the chocolate


Pour chocolate over chilled crust and sprinkle with flaky sea salt. Set back in the refrigerator until the chocolate is just set, you don't want it too hard or it will break apart while cutting. Sometimes I just set it out at room temperature until it's softened a bit so cutting is easier. It also helps to dip your knife in hot water before cutting each cut.


Enjoy!
