A while ago, a friend asked if I had a great recipe for homemade protein bars. At that time I did not, but I knew what my next mission was!

My first attempt at developing homemade protein bars was a little disappointing. Actually, to quote my friend, “These don’t look so great.” Well, ok, lol. Back to the drawing board. With a couple more tries I developed these Fudgy Double Chocolate Protein Bars that are better than any store-bought protein bars I’ve ever had.

These bars have a rich chocolate flavor and fudgy texture. They’re like a cross between fudge and brownies. And they have 201kcals, 11g protein, and 8g net carbs per serving!

Pro Tip: As-is these chocolate protein bars are snack-size, but I like to grab two for a filling meal on-the-go! Or pair one with a couple hard-boiled eggs for a satisfying meal.

Best Homemade Protein Bars

I’ve tried a lot of store-bought protein bars. The first things I look at are the ingredient list and nutrition information. After that, for me to buy it again, of course it has to taste good! A lot of protein bars on the market are chalky, have a weird texture, and/or have an off-flavor.

I’ve noticed that it’s especially hard to find store-bought chocolate-flavored protein bars that I love (why do so many of them taste like Tootsie Rolls?!). After this recipe, I don’t need to look for them at the store anymore! 

These bars are deeply chocolaty and they have bursts of extra chocolate flavor thanks to chocolate chips. Their texture is part fudge, part brownie, and all delicious.

Try these and I think you’ll agree that they’re the best protein bars you’ve tasted!

Low Carb Protein Bar Recipe

With 8g net carbs per serving, these bars are already lower in carbs. To reduce the carbs even more in this recipe for Fudgy Double Chocolate Protein Bars, omit the stevia-sweetened chocolate chips. They are still full of delicious chocolate flavor!

Chocolate Peanut Butter Protein Bars Variation

The flavor of almond butter isn’t really noticeable in these chocolate protein bars. However, if you prefer peanut butter you can use the same amount of unsweetened peanut butter instead of almond butter. Look for unsweetened peanut butter that’s runny (not super thick), such as Smucker’s Natural Peanut Butter Creamy.
