No-Bake Peanut Butter Protein Cereal Bars


Prep Time

10 Minutes

Prep Notes

A good snack bar not only has good flavor, but a good texture and crunch. With a combination of puffs, flakes and seeds, these cereal bars have all three. A combination of peanut butter and coconut oil act as the binder, and a little protein powder adds a protein boost. No extra sweeteners required. 


Note: When out of the freezer for an extended period of time, they will crumble.
