These Peanut Butter Protein Squares are my new obsession and now that I’ve created this recipe, there’s no going back! They’re made up of three layers of total bliss – an oaty flapjack base, a protein-packed fudge and a dark chocolate coating.
Like all my recipes, they contain no gluten, dairy or refined sugar, plus they’re high in fibre from the wholegrain oats. The best bit is how easy they are to throw together – no oven required!
For the fudgey protein centre, I always use my favourite protein which is vanilla Misfits Health .
They were a mega hit when I brought them to Friday night dinner a few weeks ago and I’ve had so many requests to make them again from everyone who’s tried them!
