If you read my last post about protein bars and tried them yourself, I’m hoping you either loved them so much exactly the way they were that you didn’t change a thing OR that you changed up a bunch and made your own custom version!
As for me, I’ve now made several variations, including using Vanilla Chai Vega One, adding a lot more flax meal, omitting the honey… and my new, absolute favorite that I must share with you: Chocolate Almond Butter. TOTAL YUM.
If you like chocolate and almond butter, you will (hopefully) like these a lot! I have one for breakfast first thing in the morning (don’t even ask how early that is!) and it keeps me satisfied ALL the way until lunch. Your mileage may vary, so please don’t think that’s a serving size that fits all 😉
And once again, if you’ve customized your own based on either of these recipes, I’d love to hear what you did!
Have a beautiful week, wherever you are! 🙂
