{Heart-Shaped} Peanut Butter Protein Bars



We are T-minus two days from Valentine's Day. While that may mean nothing to some of you, I know there are a few followers out there who secretly enjoy any and everything heart shaped.

Of course, I am still fresh out of the holiday mindset, so massive amounts of chocolate and rich food is not really my thing right now. But I didn't let that stop me from whipping up these heart-shaped peanut butter protein bars in honor of Valentine's Day.

I always try to have a stash of protein bites in my freezer, ready to grab on my way to the gym or as a recovery when I get back. So really, the only difference in these is their shape (and lack of oats). Click here for my Dark Chocolate Covered Protein Bite recipe.

As always, I added a few dark chocolate morsels to satisfy any slight sweet tooth you may have. These take five minutes to make and are oh, so tasty.

Enjoy!
