Healthy Protein Bars (Keto, Paleo, Gluten Free, Vegan)

I’ve gotten a lot of requests from readers to come up with a homemade keto protein bar recipe, and this one is super quick and easy.

You simply stir all of the ingredients together to form a dough, shape into bars or squares, and refrigerate or freeze until chilled.

They’re great for an on-the-go snack, with 10 grams of protein and under 2 grams net carbs per bar.

Feel free to use your favorite protein powder, and the recipe can easily be doubled or tripled if you want to make up a big batch for meal prep.

Keto Protein Bars

How to make your own easy low carb and keto protein bars at home.
5/5 (5)
Total Time 5 minutes
Yield 5 protein bars


  • 1/2 cup nut butter of choice
  • 3 tbsp protein powder (I used this one)
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 1/2 tbsp granulated erythritol (Regular sugar also works)
  • optional 4 oz sugar free chocolate chips
  • optional add-ins of choice, such as chia seeds or hemp hearts


  • Be sure to use a protein powder that you like, as some protein powders have an artificial aftertaste. I prefer unsweetened protein powder here but feel free to experiment, and adjust sweetener accordingly. To make the recipe, stir everything except chocolate together to form a dough. Shape into bars with your hands. If desired, dip in melted chocolate (I usually stir 2 tsp oil into the melted chocolate for a smoother sauce, but it's not required). Chill to set.

    These look amazing! I don’t love my current protein powder in smoothies, but I might really like it in these (If not, the kids will eat them =P)
    I’m pregnant and really struggling to hit my protein goal everyday, so I’m really excited to add these into my diet 🙂

    I love Katie’s recipes so was super excited for this one. I tried to mush the mixture into bars but the ratio was off so it didn’t work too well as the peanut butter just stuck to my hands like crazy. I ended up adding a half-cup oats and then I was able to work with it. Tasty as always!!

    I made these the other day and am keeping them in the freezer as a crunchy snack during the day. They are delicious! I added some rice krispy cereal for some crunch, and hemp seeds for added nutrition, and they’re awesome. They were very sticky so I had to drizzle the melted chocolate over them – next time will double the chocolate so they coat the entire bar! Love this recipe, thank you!!

  4. Christine says

    I hope that someone can give me some guidance on this because mine completely failed to set and when I scoop some out (to eat with a spoon) it just spreads back out. I used almond butter and Garden of Life vanilla protein powder. Because the powder has sweetener in it, I did not add any. Help?
