As promised - a recipe for homemade protein bars! I made these tasty little treats yesterday and they seemed to be a hit today, so I feel like it's safe for me to share the recipe now. I'm not sure mine turned out quite a delicious as my friends did last week. She used dark brown sugar and I used light. Lesson learned.

Homemade Protein Bars
makes about 20 bars

1 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup dark brown sugar 
1/4 cup light agave syrup
1/2 cup unsweetened apple sauce
2 egg whites
1 1/4 cup wheat flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
2 tsp vanilla extract
3 cups old fashioned oats
1 cup dark chocolate chips
2 scoops chocolate protein powder
8 tbsp ground flax
1/2 cup chopped almonds

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Mix all ingredients together in a large bowl.

Spread and press mixture (evenly) onto a greased cookie sheet. Bake at 350 for 15 minutes. Allow pan to cool before cutting. Each bar has 10-12 grams of protein.

Enjoy! And pack extras if you take them anywhere outside of your kitchen. Your friends are going to want their own. Maybe two!

PS. Tomorrow I am going to tackle a homemade Toasted Coconut Mocha Frappuccino. It's all I wanted today and Starbucks probably won't have it until May. Wompity womp womp womp. 

AND THIS WEEKEND IS DAYLIGHT SAVINGS!! I'M SO EXCITED. 

xo.

This is Day 16 of 100 Days of Blogging.
