I’m so excited to share this homemade protein bar recipe. If you’ve never had an RX Bar, I’ll explain a little about them and why they’re so great.
RX Bars are made with whole and natural ingredients, similar to a Lara Bar but in my opinion, they have a better texture and flavor profile. RX Bars have become very popular because they’re one of few protein bars allowed on Whole 30.
However, they come at a high cost. Of course, they do, right? Most places charge $2.74 + for ONE bar that I can finish in 3 bites. It’s unfortunate, yet I would still buy that over a protein bar that is full of crap that leaves me bloated. No thank you.
So I figured, if this really is made with a few ingredients, I should be able to recreate something similar.
AND I DID, HALLELUJAH.
Made with this goodness
You’ll need to grab some Egg White Powder – I got this one on Amazon.
+ dried blueberries (most dried blueberries have a lot of added sugar, read your labels)
makes 10-12 bars
TIP: You could also fold in whole almonds before pressing into the baking pan for added texture.
These are the perfect Paleo snack, especially if you have a hard time getting in some extra protein + healthy fats. It’s the perfect bar, I can’t get over it.
If you guys have any other favorite RX Bars you’d like me to recreate, leave a comment below and I would love to give it a shot!
all my love,
I think about making homemade RX bars every single time I hand over that $3, but still haven’t gotten around to it. We make our own Lara bars so I need to get on this recipe too! Blueberry and Chocolate Sea Salt are my favorite- excited to try it out!
I haven’t had the Chocolate Sea Salt! I’ll have to give it a try. Let me know how these turn out for you 🙂
Is the egg white protein a must? Or could it substituted with a plant based vegan protein powder? Thanks!
I’ve never tried a plant based protein! I think it would need to be unflavored, like the egg white protein, in order to keep the overall blueberry flavor! If you try it let me know how it turns out. 🙂
So I tried it with a chocolate flavored protein powder (had on hand at time) and it was delicious! But definitely overpowered the blueberry flavor. I think it would be a good option for a chocolate/espresso flavor or chocolate/peanut butter, etc. I’ll have to get my hands on some egg white protein and try again to get the full effect of this recipe.
Thanks for sharing 🙂
Awesome! you’re so welcome – I’m glad you still liked it. I want to make a chocolate and pb one, so that’s good to know! 🙂
Do you know what the carb count is on these?
Hi, Linda! I don’t but you could calculate the macros on MyFitnessPal!
Curious if these would work with collagen peptides powder instead of the egg white? That’s what I have on hand! 🙂
Hi Angie! I would think that should work, however, the egg white powder is a very different texture and consistency. I believe it’s a little bit thicker than Collagen so you might need to adjust it. I would just make sure it’s unflavored. 🙂 Let me know if you try it out!
hi im looking forward to making these this week. My question for you is, once made, how long do they last before going bad? we meal prep and id love to make a week or mores worth at a time.
Hi Chad! I would say 5-7 days. You could easily freeze them though! I would individually wrap them up if you freeze them so they don’t stick together once thawed. I hope you like them!
Do they have to stay in the fridge?
I keep mine in the fridge to keep the shape and texture. Freezer works, too.
Thanks for sharing! Do they keep long?
Hi! I would say for the week!
Do you use the regular container for your Vitamix for this? Or the dry blade container?
Do you have a chocolate/peanut butter recipe version. I might try this with strawberries. Thanks
I’m sorry, I don’t! You’ll have to experiment and let me know!
