I don’t know about you but I get annoyed at the grocery store spending $1.50-$2.00 on protein bars, especially when I look at the ingredient list and there are ingredients that I can’t pronounce or there is fake sugar products used like splenda or aspartame. There are very few brands that actually make all natural, healthy, and delicious snack bars. But to throw a couple shout outs I do like Kind Bars, the protein comes from whole nuts, and That’s It, we sell these at The Green Yogi and are healthy, but no protein just fruit…
Which is why I like to try making my own protein bars and am always on the look out for recipes that I can tweak depending on what I have in my pantry and fridge. The next recipe I am going to try is one for a Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Protein Bar from Averie’s Blog Love Veggies And Yoga, I was drawn to the recipe because I always use our too ripe bananas for banana bread but wanted to find a new, yummy, practical use for our brown bananas! These can be gluten, soy and animal product free if you use the right substitutions. But be creative and experiment with your own favorite flavors and let me know how it goes.
You can then wrap them individually so they’re ready to go when you need a quick snack or wait to cut them individually. I’m keeping mine in the freezer so they last longer. Enjoy!
