Okay, So since I've just started a second  job which I dont have time to eat at I have to get creative. I've tried alot of protein bars and meal replacement bars.  But it's really hard to find a bar without a high amount of sugars and saturated fat, and nasty additives. Theres a new bar by Balance out there that i want to try....  

NIMBLE by Balance It has a 40-30-30 ratio- which means its based on
40% -carb, 30%-protein , 30%-fat..They have a lot of added vitamins and minerals..with only 4g of sugar +10g of protein!!
 I'm definitely DIEING to try...but they are on backorder

Another bar thats a fav but more of a treat...Doesnt ring in to nice with the 6g of fat..(It's a little higher in fat)... Is Chocolate Mint By Luna...from there protein line. 

I used to make a protein bar but I haven't done it in a while..AND this bar was good, but it needed a little revamping! I found when i used to make it, it was a little on the soggy side..So depending if you like bars on the crunchy side or soft you can tweek the recipes...

There's a couple recipes that I've tried and tweeked for protein bars and these were the top TWO...

Chocolatey Ninja

4 cups of oats
4 heaping scoops of protein powder
1/2cup unsweetened applesauce
1/4 cup Dutch processed cocoa
2 liquid egg whites
1/4 cup light syrup
1/3 cup raisins
6 oz of Trop 50 orange juice
1/2 tsp of vanilla
1 tsp cinnamon
4 packets of truvia
Mix together all ingredience, Put down wax paper on a cookie sheet or a a 9 by 13 pan...DON'T spread to thin to all four corners or it will come out too thin and rubbery like!!
Bake for 8-9 mins @350F

Nutritional value per bar- 173 calories; 1.8g fat; 14g Protein; 43g carb

Punchy Protein bars
3 cups of Oats
8 oz of fat free cream cheese
1/4 cup of raisins
4-41/2 scoops of protein powder (depending on thickness)
1/3 cup of splenda or alt sweetner
dash of vanilla
dash of cinnamon

Combine ingredience with an electric mixer. If consistency is too thick you can add some water or milk. I added a dash of skim chocolate milk!!! ( MY absolute FAVORITE is Over The Moon..idk how they keep it so thick and creamy just for skim, but it's delish) Spread in an 8x8 pan. Place in fridge for an hour or so til hardened.  CUT into about 10 bars

Nutritional value per bar- 164 calories; 1.8g fat; 16g protein; 20g carb

So remember you can add anything you want into your protein bars or make subsitutions. Thats the funnest part!!! So make it your own creation!!

Until next time...Stay healthy!!!
