proteinbar1My husband has been asking me to make homemade protein bars because the store bought ones are not only expensive but contain too many artificial ingredients. We’ve both been working out a lot, and protein bars are a tasty way to get in some extra protein. Did I mention they are chocolate?

A couple of days ago I made my first batch of homemade protein bars. I made the easy no-bake version. They were a hit with my soon to be 11 year old son and my husband. They were not a hit with me. Something about them were lacking. Today I altered my recipe slightly and this time the protein bars tasted much better.
