Before I came up with this method, I had made a batch of protein bars with just honey and peanut better as the binding agents. The bars were delicious, don’t get me wrong, but I wanted to use less peanut butter without sacrificing the chewiness factor, that binds it all together.
Use dates as the main base in addition to the peanut butter. This way I was able to use less peanut butter without loosing the chewy quality! I got the idea from looking at the ingredients used in Lara Bars ©. The main binding ingredient they use is Dates!
But, I personally think my bars taste a lot better than Lara Bars © …but who’s bragging.
