Homemade Chocolate Protein Bars

I love my sweets! My splurge it is having a chocolate chunk cookie from Starbucks, but I can’t do that everyday &  stay lean.  Luckily there are delicious recipes that satisfy my craving & still allow me to stick to clean eating.

Homemade protein bars are perfect, and my favorite is the Chocolate Protein Bars.  They are a staple in my frig.  I make these often because they are easy to tote to class or work & they are great for a quick pre-workout snack!  This recipe is from Jamie Eason, a fitness model and writer.
