Protein Power Bars


A few summers ago, I moved to Montreal and started training for my first Olympic distance triathlon. My brother decided to join me on this journey and started training for his first duathlon. With heavy training, crazy work schedules, and a student budget, we needed the perfect post workout snack we could make at home and bring anywhere. After some recipe searching, taste testing, and fine-tuning, we came up with this great protein bar recipe. These nutritious bars are full of natural sweetness and performance enhancing protein to help you recover and get on with your day!
