Pumpkin Pie Protein Bars

50 g peanut butter
25 g sugar-free pumpkin pie-flavored syrup
50 g vanilla protein powder

Mix together peanut butter, anise extract and syrup. Stir in protein powder. Knead dough until it resembles raw cookie dough. Refrigerate until ready to eat.

Gingerbread Cookie Dough Protein Bars

50 g peanut butter
25 g sugar-free gingerbread-flavored syrup
50 g vanilla protein powder

Eggnog Protein Bars

50 g peanut butter
25 g sugar-free eggnog-flavored syrup
50 g vanilla protein powder

Mix together peanut butter, anise extract and syrup. Stir in protein powder. Knead dough until it resembles raw cookie dough. Refrigerate until ready to eat.

Candy Cane Protein Bars

50 g peanut butter
25 g sugar-free peppermint-flavored syrup
2 g (1/2 tsp) of pure peppermint extract
50 g vanilla protein powder

Mix together peanut butter, peppermint extract and syrup. Stir in protein powder. Knead dough until it resembles raw cookie dough. Refrigerate until ready to eat.

It tastes like a soft chewy candy cane. The peppermint flavor is subtle, in case you're worried. Sort of like candy cane taffy, but softer.

Anise Cookie Dough Protein Bars

50 g peanut butter
25 g sugar-free vanilla or cookie dough syrup
4 g (1 tsp) of pure anise extract
50 g vanilla protein powder

Mix together peanut butter, anise extract and syrup. Stir in protein powder. Knead dough until it resembles raw cookie dough. Refrigerate until ready to eat.


Notes:

These are NOT BAKED. All must be refrigerated to store.

Measurements are approximate--they depend on brand(s) used. The proportions in general should be 2:1:2 peanut butter:sugar-free syrup:protein powder. iow approximately equal amounts (by weight) of peanut butter and protein powder and half that amouint of syrup.

For the peanut butter in these recipes, I used Skippy Reduced Fat Creamy
For the protein powder, I used VPX Zero Carb Vanilla
For the sugar-free syrup, I used Da Vinci brand
For the extracts, I used McCormick

No, you can't taste the peanut butter (the flavor recedes while the extract and syrup flavors come to the forefront).
