You love homemade protein bars. Don’t deny it.
Due to the amazing feedback I received on my vegan Red Velvet Protein Bars, I decided to make a variation to these homemade protein bars. Non-vegan this time because of the protein powder I used, however it can easily be made vegan if you use a plant-based protein powder of course.
I recently got to try Vi-Shape nutritional shake mix in Sweet Cream flavor courtesy of ViSalus. The protein comes from mostly soy and whey. While I try to not take in much additional soy, I did hear good reviews about the ViSalus shakes so I was curious. The flavor is good! However this isn’t your typical protein powder, it is more of a nutritional shake as it contains much less protein than regular protein powder would.
The mix can aid in weight loss as it is low in calories, sugar, sodium and has a myriad of other health perks. The only thing I disliked was that it contained artificial flavors.
Let’s get to the recipe! This one is another winner! I’m thinking that homemade protein bars might be the new “hot” thing for me. I really love how they turn out – so delicious and SO much better than commercial prepackaged bars! At least I know exactly what goes in this! Plus I just LOVE the dark chocolate…. I can’t say I didn’t lick the bowl clean of the melted chocolate… cause I did. I can’t help it. Chocolate is ma thang!
