For a quick and effective snack solution to support your fitness goals, look no further than these No-Bake Chocolate Chip Protein Bars! Many store bought bars flaunt bragging labels of enormous protein contents; however, these conventional brands usually carry some extra baggage- A.K.A massive amounts of sugar and refined carbohydrates. This delicious protein bar recipe calls for superfoods like ground flax seeds, almond butter, honey, and old-fashioned oats- all of which deliver precious nutrients your body will thank you for.
Meanwhile, Silk Protein Nutmilk, a tasty alternative to dairy milk, is the secret weapon in these workout bars. This uber-nutritious nutmilk merges the goodness of almonds and creaminess of cashews into one scrumptious, calcium-rich beverage, and packs some major flavor in these protein bars! And best of all? The no-bake recipe requires little effort on your part. Simply combine ingredients, pour mixture into a square pan, and refrigerate!
