How to Maximize Your Homemade Keto Protein Bar Experience:

SMOOTH OR CRUNCHY: Though the recipe calls for crunchy almond butter, smooth almond butter will work, too, however, we think the crunchy texture adds a nice consistency to the protein bar!

USE CHOCOLATE ORGANIC WHEY PROTEIN: Our Organic Chocolate Grass Fed Whey is packed with 20 grams of protein per scoop to make you feel full and satisfied!

BARS OR BALLS: Not feeling bars? Or maybe you don’t have an 8x8 pan to easily shape the bars? Roll the dough into balls to create protein bites!
