Protein bars make a great afternoon pick-me-up snack as well as an excellent after workout snack. So many ingredients are available to us that we no longer need to buy certain things store bought-such as protein bars. Also, consider how expensive protein bars can be, I would really rather make my own with wholesome ingredients rather than spending up to 5 dollars on one protein bar.
Not only are these protein bars allowed on your Keto diet but they’re tasty too. Think of Reese’s pieces and protein bars mixed together. I’m a true peanut butter and chocolate fan and love any of the like that contain the combination. The coconut flour, protein powder, and peanut butter combination help give the protein bars center a fudgy texter. That’s a melt in my mouth kind of snack I want to be a part of!
