*Arbonne also sells a sample size pack of vegan chocolate protein so you can try before you commit to a large bag.
Note: I had to double the recipe plus a half of the recipe to fill my pan.
Microwave safe mixing bowl
Pan or Tray
Spoon to flatten mixture
1. Melt the peanut butter, coconut oil and agave in a microwave safe mixing bowl
2. Mix the melted ingredients together
3. Add two scoops of Arbonne's chocolate protein powder and one scoop of Arbonne's chocolate protein to the mixture; mix together
4. Add 1/2 cups of oatmeal and 1/2 cup of chopped pecans to the mixture; mix together

The serving size depends on many variables. The size of your pan, thickness and size of your bars are the biggest ones. My bars were cut into 20 even bars about an inch wide. The smaller your bars the less calories you consume in one sitting. However, the smaller the bar the less protein you are consuming.
