When you need a break from clean eating and you’ve earned a cheat meal, here’s a peanut butter squares recipe that’s still packed with muscle-building protein.

1,764 calories | 122g protein | 157g carbs | 72g fat | 37g fibre | 43g sugar



  • 450g reduced sodium chickpeas
  • 6 tbsp peanut butter (or any other nut butter)
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 tbsp brown rice syrup (or honey/maple syrup)
  • 4 scoops vanilla protein powder
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1½ tbsp dark chocolate chips



Step 1. Drain and rinse your chickpeas.

Step 2. Add all of your ingredients, aside from your dark chocolate chips, into either a food processor or a really powerful blender.

Step 3. Process or blend everything together.

Step 4. Take out a baking pan, coat it with some non-stick cooking spray and pour your mix in.

Step 5. Top your squares with your dark chocolate chips, then put them into the oven on 175°C for 20-25 minutes.


You can store these at room temperature and they’ll usually last around 5-7 days.
