I’ve never really been a fan of protein bars simply because I have never had a reason to eat them. Whenever possible, I try to find whole real foods to eat. I find so many protein bars to be glorified candy bars with tons of unnecessary ingredients. But with a crazy month of traveling and school ahead of me, I knew I would need a quick simple bar that I can easily grab when in a pinch. I’v also been working with clients who needed something easy to eat after a workout. The key to making any type of portable food is keep it as REAL as possible… so thats what I did! These are no bake bars. Just make sure you leave yourself enough time to let them set. And feel free to switch up the nut butters and coconut! I’ve made these bars with both peanut butter and crushed peanuts and they were amazing! You can’t go wrong!
