1/2 cup peanut butter
1/4 cup protein powder
3/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 cup brown sugar or sucanat
1/2 banana
Pinch of salt

1. If your peanut butter is from the fridge, gently warm it until it is a stirrable consistency.


2. In a mixing bowl, stir the peanut butter and applesauce until they form a smooth paste.


3. In a separate bowl, combine all remaining ingredients and mix well.


4. Pour the dry ingredients over the peanut butter mixture and stir until evenly incorporated. It will be a little crumbly, so transfer the crumbly dough to a gallon-size plastic bag.


5. From inside the bag, form one big ball. Still in the bag, roll out with a rolling pin. Cut bars (or portion bars into individual bags and shape them) and put in the freezer to firm.
