Home Made Protein Bars

I used to be addicted to protein bars, eating 2-3 bars a day thinking they were good for me just because they were called "Protein Bars"... I would go for anything that had a lot of protein and tasted good.

Then, as I kicked my training up a notch, I realized I had to kill this fetish, a pretty expansive one too as a protein bar costs about $5... I had to stop eating these "candy bars with protein" but I still needed convenient access to healthy protein. This is when I decided to create the perfect homemade protein bar. One that had all the good stuff and none of the bad.

I wanted them to be healthy but cheap to make.... Here's the result!They are damn good tasting and can be made in under 5 minutes... Enjoy!
