No-Bake Peanut Butter Power Bars

No-Bake Peanut Butter Power Bars via Queen of Quinoa (@alyssarimmer)Are you noticing a trend? I’m like seriously obsessed with peanut butter lately.

I think it’s because peanut butter (like my beloved almond butter) is a quick, easy snack that is packed with protein and healthy fats, and fuels you up pre- or post-workout. I almost always turn to nut butters for a snack, whether slathered on a rice cake topped with fruit, or made into raw snack bites, nut butter always hits the spot.

What great about these No-Bake Peanut Butter Power Bars is they’re a) no-bake, meaning they’re a cinch to throw together, b) loaded with nutrients and superfoods, and c) amazingly delicious!

You know those raw protein bars that cost nearly $2.00 a bar? Well with this recipe, you can have a 12 bar stock of those healthy treats on-hand all the time. Plus, you’ll be saving a bunch of money! What’s better than that?

    Hi Alyssa, I made these wonderful no-bake power bars last night, and they are the perfect raw treat. I really am getting into the raw desserts of late and this is a choco bar without the chocolate, but the next time I make them I plan to coat them with a chocolate topping. I did substitute the peanut butter for almond butter, and I didn’t have any protein powder and so left that out. I did have raw almonds on hand and medjool dates, used unpasteurized honey (I am assuming that raw honey is unpasteurized). I loved all the ingredients you used upon reading your e-mail, and was excited about making these right away, and was really hoping that the taste would be that great go to treat.

    So I just wanted you to know that these are definitely a keeper for me. I love quinoa more and more each time I work with it, and love the recipes you have here on your blog. Keep up the great work.

    Hi Alyssa,

    I just made these and they were fantastic! I didn’t have any sunflower seeds so subbed in some chopped toasted pecans and dried cherries. So many things you could sub in…..even cocoa nibs :) My daughters even agreed to take these as their snack at school rather than the traditional granola bar. Thanks so much for giving me a much healthier alternative!!

    Hi there! I’ve recently discovered your lovely website, which matches my obsession with quinoa! I made this recipe a week or so ago, with the intention to bring some along with me in a ziplock bag for a long marathon training run. I subbed almond butter for the peanut butter and made them into balls versus a bar. They got pretty mushy on my run, but still tasted great and supplied me with a natural alternative for nutrition/energy, compared to a processed ‘gu’ or ‘gel’. Thanks so much for sharing this!
