Copycat Perfect Snack Peanut Butter Bar Recipe

Last Updated on February 4, 2024 by Gabby Hatten

My kids absolutely looove the chocolate chip peanut butter bar by Perfect Snack. It’s a staple in my house but they are expensive and I just had to find a way to make my own at home!

I wasn’t sure if I’d be able to get the right texture and flavor but turns out these were a complete success and my oldest actually let me know she liked these better than the store bought!

Copycat Perfect Bar Recipe Ingredients

dry ingredients

  • Oat flour (make your own fine oat flour here)
  • organic dark chocolate chip (optional)
  • collagen peptides or vanilla protein powder

wet ingredients 

  • peanut butter or almond butter
  • coconut oil (melted)
  • honey or maple syrup (optional)
  • vanilla extract (optional)

Tools

  • food processor (optional)
  • large mixing bowl
  • spoon
  • parchment paper

Full of healthy fats, these homemade protein bars are sure to please even your pickiest eater. Just store your homemade bars in an airtight container in the fridge for 4-5 days. They can not be stored at room temperature or they will melt.

Substitutions

While this homemade perfect bar recipe is as close to the peanut butter perfect bar I can get, you can of course switch it up and make your own flavor variations! These high protein snacks are a winner no matter what, might as well get creative with it!

Flour; oat flour is needed for the original perfect bars flavor, but if you don’t care about that you can use coconut flour or almond flour. 

Peanut butter; you can use cashew butter, natural peanut butter, almond butter, or any nut butter.

Protein; you can use your favorite protein powder, whey protein, or vegan protein powder. I personally use these vanilla collagen peptides from Thrive Market!

Chocolate chips; I use the organic mini chips from Thrive Market, but you can use any chips, no chips, or even nuts or sprinkles instead.

Honey; I use the organic honey from Thrive Market, but you can use any honey, or maple syrup. You can also leave it out completely. Bars will not hold their shape quite as well but it works.

Instructions

  1. Add your dry ingredients to a large mixing bowl (save chocolate chips for topping)
  2. Next, add your wet ingredients. Coconut oil should be added one tbsp at a time. Add a little as needed.
  3. Spoon your peanut butter mixture onto parchment paper.
  4. Press mixture down with a rolling pin and carefully roll into an even rectangle.
  5. Sprinkle chocolate chips and press down lightly
  6. Cover and let set in refrigerator for at least one hour.

I hope you enjoy this easy snack recipe! Save money on your grocery bill by ditching the store-bought protein bars and take charge of creating your own healthy snacks.
