Nutritious Snacks & Treats

Make vanilla almond butter that tastes exactly like the RX Bar version at home with this easy and recipe with extra protein! It’s amazing with a banana or simply on toast!

Ever since RX Bar launched their nut butter packets I’ve been hooked! They were a great snack on my recent trip to Thailand, and are perfect for having after the gym or on-the-go with an apple or banana. The flavor combination of almond and vanilla is super good and just really natural tasting — not fake at all like other flavored things can be.

All of the flavors of the RX bar nut butter packets are delicious (hello maple!) and I got to thinking (because my supply of vanilla almond butter was dwindling) that there’s got to be an easy way to redo the recipe at home. Enter this recipe for vanilla almond butter with a protein twist that tastes just as good as the real thing.

      1. Can this be made in a Vitamix? I have salted almonds I need to use. Can I wash the salt off and let them dry and use them?

    1. the texture of the almond butter might be different—they might not be as easy to blend into almond butter or take longer. As long as you’re using a food processor I think it would still work!

  1. Would you use a vanilla protein powder if you don’t have the collagen? Or better to just leave it out? Thanks!

  2. The Rx bars include egg white in their ingredients–can i add them to this recipe? How many do you think you’d need.? Or is it just best to leave out.

    1. I think it’s best to leave them out! There’s a little bit of a food safety risk by adding them in at home!
