Perfect bite of a homemade perfect bar!

My favorite part of Perfect Bars is the T E X T U R E. Its kind of like fudge, but better. These homemade bars are a bit softer than the packaged bars, so make sure to store them in the freezer so they stay solid. Make sure you use a RUNNY peanut butter as well (I love this brand)!

You’ll need to wrap the dough in plastic wrap and freeze for at least an hour before cutting into bars to avoid a big, gloopy mess.


Then, simply slice into bars and enjoy!!! You’ll want to use a sharp knife to ensure a nice, clean cut. I highly recommend the Victorinox knife for a budget friendly Chef’s knife. I use mine for everything.

Copycat Homemade Perfect Bars
By The Granola Diaries


  • 1 C Natural creamy Peanut Butter (recommend this brand, or similar)
  • 1/4 C Honey
  • 1/3 C + 3 Tbsp Vanilla Protein Powder (I used this one)
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 Tbsp milk of choice (I used Almond Milk)
  • Optional: 1/2 tsp superfood powder, spirulina powder, wheatgrass powder, or maca powder, or any superfood powder of choice. (I skipped this and still loved it!)


Mix all ingredients together in a bowl until combined. Mixture should be thick and tough to mix. If seems too runny, add some more protein powder, or a Tbsp of oat or almond flour. If seems too thick (will no longer mix), add a splash more milk. Line a loaf pan or container with plastic wrap and press mixture into a large rectangle shape. Freeze for at least an hour and then slice into ~6 – 7 bars.  Wrap each bar individually and store in the freezer. They’ll get soft at room temperature!


  • These bars are quite soft. To add a bit more firm texture, feel free to add ~2 tbsp. of oat flour or almond flour.
  • Mixing and pressing is easiest if you have a silicone spatula!

Nutritional Info
I don’t usually add nutritional info and I am not sure how reliable this data is. I pasted a screenshot of what I input on MyFitnessPal. At 271 calories and 11g protein per bar, these are very comparable to real deal!
