Protein bars are a great way to have a snack, satisfy your sweet tooth, and fill your quota of protein. Have you ever noticed how, often, the commercial protein bars readily available are merely glorified candy bars with all that sugar they have to add to make them taste decent? Don't get me wrong, I have totally bought and devoured said protein bars during a long hike or when I'm in a hurry and need something to fill me up. But, I'd much rather make my own with quality ingredients.

The question then comes down to....what is the best protein to use? One of my favorites is SUNWARRIOR

Sunwarrior's blend of rich plant-based protein sources combine with MTC oil from coconuts. Medium Chain Triglycerides - MTC, is a stable and long-lasting source of energy, has detoxification components, and helps to manage appetite and weight. All those amino acids work in this amazing synergistic way to help build muscle, lift your mood as a seratonin building block, functions as a neurotransmitter to better handle stress, acts as precurser to a healthy immune function, and keeps the heart and blood vessels flexible and healthy. 

Sounds like a powerful combo to me! So I blended the ever versatile Sunwarrior Blend vanilla flavored plant-based protein powder (but you could certainly swap that for almost any flavor) and added it with simple ingredients for these bars. 

These bars are allergy friendly too! Dairy free, grain free, nut free, and still so tasty!
