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!

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!

In terms of protein powders, my personal favourite is Planet Paleo’s Organic Bone Broth Sports Protein, which comes in either Chocolate or Vanilla & Banana flavours. Both are delicious blended into a smoothie, stirred into porridge or used in baking, and bone broth contains easily digestible proteins such as collagen and gelatine, so is great for tissue repair and overall fitness. You can use the code ELI10 for a discount on Planet Paleo. I’m also a big fan of the protein powders by Nuzest (discount code: ELIB) and JS Health (discount code: UKEB15).

If you like these Peanut Butter Protein Squares, I think you’ll LOVE my Chocolate Peanut Butter Jelly Cups, Trillionaire Shortbread and Peanut Butter Choc Chip Cookie Pie!
