Chocolate Protein Bars chock full of almonds - that you make at home. Gotta love that!
Protein is my “thing.”
So much so that I might even go as far as to say it my “thannnng.”
It keeps you full so you can avoid that whole ‘oh-my-gosh-I-am-so-hungry-I-could-eat-my-arm-right-now” feeling that sometimes happens between breakfast and lunch break.
And, now, I’m including it my (and hopefully your!) snack-age with some Chocolate Protein Bars.
Can’t Stop. Won’t Stop.
My love of chocolate started, well, at birth, but I didn’t realize just how well it paired with all things protein until it made its way into a Chocolate Protein Smoothie.
Really though, can chocolate make anything bad? It’s like bacon. It’s always the right choice.
Especially when paired with chewy oats, crunchy almonds and creamy almond butter. I die.
The story of the quest for the perfect protein bar begins like all good stories begin: I was hungry. Like I-need-food-yesterday kind of hungry.
I rummaged through the cupboards and couldn’t find anything that sounded perfect for the give-me-sweet-but-also-give-me-healthy “food mood” that I was in. I didn’t know what to do. It was downright tragic, guys.
Sitting down in the middle of the kitchen floor, I began to ponder my options. Do I go to the store and buy something? Considering that I had deemed that day a “no makeup and no real pants” day, going out in public was definitely out of the question. Side note: Like chocolate and bacon, pajamas are always the right choice.
Option 2: make something that fit exactly what I was craving.
Thinking about the poor people that would be exposed to no makeup Taylor, I decided that option 2 was the only option.
And, guys, it was such a good life choice.
Into the oven went the easiest, one bowl mixture of Chocolate Almond Protein yum-ness, and out came heaven in a healthy, portable, snack-o-rific bar form.
Give-me-sweet-but-also-give-me-healthy “food moods,” you have met your match.
