These minimal ingredient bars are high protein, high fiber MAGIC!
Honestly, they were created out of pure necessity. I needed something that I could munch on while running around with my head cut off. I mean, nothing really new here but ever since we’ve been social distancing, my family’s needs have tripled.
I’m not exaggerating… I promise.
There’s the homeschooling and the cooking and the cleaning and the 5 million loads of laundry. How the heck are there so many clothes?!? We aren’t even going anywhere.
I digress… these were obviously a NEED.
Let’s talk ingredients. This recipe is so incredibly adaptable!
Eggs – easily subbed for flax eggs
Bananas- can be swapped for sweet potatoes or pumpkin puree
Peanut Butter – whatever nut or seed butter you please!
Powdered PB- swap with additional protein powder
Protein Powder – Can be swapped for oat flour but I wouldn’t. Why? Because I love how protein stabilizes our blood sugar! Feeling a little moody lately? It might be because your blood sugar isn’t being properly stabilized. Now, if you’ve been following me for a hot second – you know my favorite protein to use is Nuzest because of their clean ingredient. I haven’t tested this recipe with any other protein to experimenters BEWARE.
Chocolate Chips- omit, add more or add things like nuts, berries or pretzels!
