If you have a busy schedule and often find yourself hungry but without a healthy snack at hand then I would highly recommend thinking about making some on-the-go snack such as these tasty yet very healthy protein bar recipes.
A protein bar is the ideal snack because they contain a good mix of nutrients that not only are filling but will give you an much needed energy boost on those busy days when you feel like you are running on empty.
A lot of over the counter protein bars are not the best quality and some are filled with a artificial sweeteners, fillers, and other chemicals that you really don’t want to be eating no matter how hungry you are.
By making your own, you know exactly what ingredients are involved and how much has been used so easy to calculate in terms of nutrients and calories if you are focused on losing a few pounds.
These paleo protein bar recipes are great as a snack during the day, a night-time tv watching treat or as a pre or post exercise meal.
Paleo “Peanut Butter” Protein Bars
This paleo snack bar is called peanut butter but is not actually made with peanut butter!! I know but it doesn’t matter because these are delicious as they are plus they look amazing.Get a batch of these made up and in the freezer and you will be enjoying these for weeks to come. Well maybe not weeks because I don’t think they will last that long. The protein content in these bars come from almond butter but if you wanted to boost up with protein powder that would work well.
