Dates, nuts, and egg white powder are the main ingredients you’ll need to make your own bars at home.  They’re made best in the food processor, but can also be made in a blender!

Medjool dates are super soft and blend well into bars, but if you have other types of dates on hand, definitely use those.  Give them a soak in warm water for 30 minutes, drain them, and they’re ready to go!

Clean ingredients, loads of healthy fats with added protein – my kind of protein bar!

What type of protein powder should you use?

This recipe utilizes egg white protein powder, which is basically pure egg whites that are pulverized and dehydrated.  It’s an unflavored egg protein powder.

You can also use collagen peptides as another great way to add protein to the bars.

You could also utilize an unflavored whey protein powder, however, you’ll need to adjust and use a bit more water as you go.

How to make better than store-bought protein bars

  1. Line a loaf pan with parchment paper.
  2. To a food processor or blender, add the peanuts, dates, and vanilla extract.  Pulse to begin to break the nuts and dates into smaller pieces.
  3. When the nuts and dates look like they’re combined and in much smaller pieces, add the powdered egg whites and 2 tablespoons of water.  Pulse again to begin to combine. Add up to 1 more tablespoon of water.  Too much water and you’ll be left with a sticky mess.
  4. Once the protein powder is mixed with the rest of the ingredients, add the chocolate chips and mix to combine.
  5. Add to the bottom of the pan and press to smooth.  Add more chocolate chips on the top if you’d like.
  6. Chill in the fridge for 30 minutes, then cut into bars. Enjoy!

How to store these homemade bars

Instead of storing this egg white protein bar recipe at room temperature, these bars are best kept in the fridge or freezer.

Once the bars are cut into individual pieces, you can add them to an airtight storage container and keep them in the fridge until you’re ready to enjoy.

You can also individually wrap each bar in parchment paper, and then add it to a storage bar.  Keep in the fridge for up to 1 week, or in the freezer for up to 6 months.

They’re great to prep ahead of time, and fantastic to double if your food processor is large enough!

Substitutions

Below you’ll find a list of substitutions that will work well in this no-bake protein bars recipe. 

If you try something different out, please leave a comment below letting us all know how it turned out!

Dry roasted peanuts – Peanuts can be replaced with any nut or seed – try raw almonds, walnuts, pecans, hazelnuts, macadamia nuts, sunflower seeds, or pumpkin seeds.

Medjool dates – Any type of dates will work in place of medjool dates.  Dates that are not soft to start with should be softened in warm water.  You can also replace up to half of the dates with any other dried fruit!

Egg white protein powder – To swap out egg white powder, try collagen peptides, or whey protein powder. You can also opt to not add extra protein into the bar, and instead add 2-4 tablespoons of coconut flour or almond flour.

Vanilla extract – Another great flavor option is an almond extract or mint extract.

Chocolate chips – Chocolate chunks or chopped chocolate bars work well as substitutes for chocolate chips.  For a non-sweetened option use cacao nibs.
