Protein bars

I made these chocolate protein bars today.  I used to make them all the time but stopped when I had food aversions during pregnancy.  No need to make a recipe only to toss it when I find out it makes me nauseous!  I made it with vegan protein powder instead of whey to make them dairy free, but otherwise stuck to the recipe.  I doubled it and it came out tasty judging by some crumbs I tasted, but not pretty.  You can watch the video to see them come out better!

I plan to eat these for an afternoon snack now that I’m having Shakeology when I get up.  Right now on a typical weekday I plan to have Shakeology in the morning, oatmeal with flax and banana after my workout, chicken sausage with ezekiel bread and some fruit/vegetable around lunch, protein bar in the afternoon and something for dinner.  Plus a snack while we’re up in the middle of the night. I need to work a bit on lunch and dinner, but those I tend to have some variation in.  Throw in a bunch of lactation cookies and you’ve got my day.

I think I need to find a new crockpot recipe for lunch because it’s so easy.  I’ll do some searching tomorrow.
