Protein bars are perfects snacks for after a workout, during a road trip, on a hike, for an afternoon pick-me-up, during a busy day or even for a quick breakfast on-the-go.
The problem is that most protein bars on the market are made with lots of processed sugars and artificial ingredients. Those are not exactly good for your body - in fact, they can lead to inflammation, chronic pain and disease.
You really don’t want your snack to create health problems. You want your protein bars to have remedying benefits and to fill you up with lots of energy instead.
You are in luck. We have the PERFECT protein bar for you!
It’s easy to make. Being home-made, it is actually cheaper than buying all those bars at the store with hefty price-tags. They are full of anti-inflammatory omega-3s (thank you, chia and hemp seeds!) and good fats (thank you almonds, coconut, almond butter and seeds!).
These bars have the texture of a chewy cranberry crunch perfect bar except with a
totally Organifi-ish spin! Packed with protein, desiccated coconut, almond butter
and dried cherries and seeds. They are insanely great!
