How to Maximize Your 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 ORGANIC CHOCOLATE MINT PLANT PROTEIN: Not only is our Organic Chocolate Mint Plant Protein essential to the refreshing chocolate mint flavor in these bars, but it’s also packed with 20 grams of complete 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!
