Summer is a very busy time, kids out of school, weather inspiring you to stay active and the heat making it harder to eat. I dug up this little recipe that I posted last year from 30 Min Hit Owner – Stacey Firth. It’s a perfect little snack for you when your on the go or for right after your workout. They are the perfect mid day pick me up. A better choice than reaching for the chocolate!
–MOST DELICIOUS PROTEIN BARS ON EARTH–
1 cup honey (or alternative if you’re vegan)
1 cup peanut butter (don’t use Kraft— use Adams crunchy mmm)
1 cup cocoa powder
& anything else you want! I like to put the following in mine:
*shredded unsweetened coconut
etc etc etc!
In a separate bowl, combine cocoa + all your tasty little choices (seeds, nuts etc..). Leave it until later.
Stir honey into a saucepan until nice and smooth. Once smooth, stir in peanut butter until blended.
Once blended, combine all other ingredients. It should get really hard to stir. Once all combined, press into a brownie-sized pan (sprayed with olive oil pam, lightly).
Put in the fridge for 2 hours, slice up into bars and keep in the fridge!
Can stay in the fridge for 30 days – or freezer forever!
You can replace cocoa with protein powder if you’d like. You end up having to use more than one cup. Play it by texture
WARNING: These things are addicting. Only eat one a day. Maybe as a snack before your workout or when you crave your sweets the most. 3pm, this is what I eat.
