Baked Peanut Butter Bars

Serves: 9

Happy Friday! We have reached the end of another week! And boy, did this week fly by! It’s really amazing how quickly time passes! I want to thank you all for the wonderful comments and emails yesterday about the upcoming fall recipes! I am so happy that you are excited as I am for some delicious fall treats! I currently have another one baking in the oven while I am typing this! And let me tell you, it smells divine! :)

Today’s recipe, although not specifically fall, is made with one of everyone’s all time favorite flavors, PEANUT BUTTER!! As you know, peanut butter is one of my (and the boyfriends) favorite flavors! Luckily it can be turned into a million different delicious recipes anytime throughout the year! To give these amazing bars an even bigger peanut kick, I topped them with some crushed peanuts, which added some nice crunchy texture! Even after the boyfriend and I inhaled every last crumb from this recipe (in 1 1/2 days), he still requested another peanut butter recipe! I guess you could call us peanut butter addicts? ;)

Fit Ingredients

  • 1 1/2c (144g) TVP (I used Bob’s Red Mill)
  • 1/2c (60g) peanut flour
  • 1/3c stevia
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4c + 2tbs (96g) egg whites
  • 1/2c coconut milk
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1tsp peanut butter extract
  • 2 small bananas (~120g), mashed
  • 1 1/2oz (42g) unsalted peanuts, crushed


  • 7×9 in baking pan
  • non stick spray



1) Pre heat your oven to 350 degrees.

2) Spray your baking pan with non stick spray.

3) In a bowl mix your dry ingredients: TVP, peanut flour, stevia, baking powder and cinnamon.

4) To your dry ingredients, add in your egg whites, coconut milk, peanut butter extract and vanilla extract. Mix well.

5) Next, add in your mashed bananas. Mix.

6) Even spread your batter into your pan.

7) Topped with crushed peanuts.

8) Bake for 20 minutes.

9) Allow to cool before serving.

And the verdict? They were AMAZING!! They are very similar to breakfast cereal bars! They had the perfect balance of sweetness and peanut butter with that crunchy topping! The boyfriend loved them! He said they went perfectly with tea! And as I always say, if he loves it, it is a true success! We both ate them as pre-workout snacks, afternoon snacks and dessert! I even topped mine with some sweetened ricotta, cacao nibs and coconut flakes for a sweet afternoon snack! Because who doesn’t love peanut butter, chocolate, coconut and cream all in one dish? ;)
