My homemade Perfect bar recipe are a classic, but I wanted to make a nut free protein bar option for everyone with allergies. These chocolate protein bars are brownie flavored and remind me of the iconic Cosmic brownies, so you know they're delicious.

Are protein bars a healthy snack?

Protein bars such as these can be a great snack to have on hand during busy weeks. I always like to make my own because I can customize the ingredients to my taste and nutrient needs. These are a great option for a touch of sweetness and boost of protein during the day!

Top Tip

Use a sharp knife to help avoid cracking the chocolate topping while slicing the bars. For smaller protein ‘bites’ slice the bars in half creating 14 smaller bites perfect for a quick snack or sweet treat!


These brownie protein bars can be stored in the fridge for up to 7 days in an airtight container. I do not recommend storing them on the counter, as the chocolate may begin to melt. To freeze, place in an airtight container and freeze for up to 3 months. I recommend allowing them to defrost for about 5 minutes prior to enjoying.
