No Bake Peanut Butter Fudge Protein Bars with Rolled Oats (sugar free, gluten free, vegan)

A very easy no bake peanut butter fudge protein bar that is homemade and healthy with lots of rolled oats that are good for cholesterol. Peanut butter also has good levels of reservatrol that is also found in grapes and red wine.

Adapted from: dessertswithbenefits


128g (1/2 cup) Natural Peanut Butter (no sugar/salt/oil added)
1 cup + 2 tbs Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk
10 packets Truvia*
40 drops Stevia Extract*
1/8 tsp Salt
96g (1 cup) Old Fashioned Rolled Oats, blended to a flour
168g (8 scoops) Vanilla Brown Rice Protein Powder** (I used SunWarrior)


Line an 8" brownie pan with wax paper or parchment paper both ways and set aside.
In a medium-sized stand mixer bowl, add the peanut butter and almond milk and stir (don't use a whisk attachment. If you feel like getting an arm workout, skip the stand mixer and use a spoon and your arm!).
While the mixer is stirring, add the Truvia, stevia and salt. Still mixing, add the oat flour. Once the oat flour has fully mixed in, add the protein powder. Mix until all the protein powder is incorporated.
Take the bowl off the stand mixer and fold the mixture with a rubber spatula to form a giant PB dough ball. Dump into the prepared pan and flatten with the spatula (or if you're fancy, a pastry roller). Cover and refrigerate overnight.
The next day, slice into bars and store in the fridge. If you are the on-the-go type, wrap each bar in parchment paper and tape to close, that way you can easily grab them out of the fridge.

*If you don't have stevia, add ~6 more packets of Truvia (or to taste). If you don't want to use Truvia, omit it and increase the stevia to 1 tsp.

**8 scoops = 1+1/4 cups packed. Do not use whey protein powder in this recipe, it will be gooey and will not solidify unless you freeze it.

Feel free to add some chopped peanuts to the mix! Or maybe even add dried fruit or mini chocolate chips as well :)

This recipe is: no bake, sugar free, high protein, gluten free and vegan!
