Gluten-Free Peanut Butter Protein Bars

Gluten-Free Peanut Butter Protein Bars

We LOVE these protein bars. They are a delicious, filling, nutritious and balanced (great carbohydrate / fat / protein ratio) snack that is perfect whether after a workout or when you need a bite between meals.  They can even be a great meal replacement if you double or triple (depending on gender and activity level) the serving size.  Best of all, once you have your ingredients together they are quick and easy to make.   We know you will love them as much as we do!

Recommended for all ages, unless you have a peanut allergy.
