Protein Packed Power Bars

Perfect for Lunch, Snacks and A Pick-Me-Up On the Go

protein bars

These power packed protein bars are a combination of everything good you need to be noshing on everyday. They are a perfect way to kick start your day or give you a little pick me up when you are suffering from that mid afternoon crash.  Filled with slow burning grains, seeds, nuts and nutrition, they will keep you filled up and going strong on those days you just can't seem to find the time to have a proper meal.  I like to keep a few on hand, but be warned, they are so tasty they go fast!!!
