No Bake Apple Cinnamon Protein Bars

I know Summer isn’t over just yet, but I can’t help but dream of hot apple cider, pumpkin spice lattes, and cozy Netflix & chill nights.

Anyone with me? 😀

So to tame my cravings, I decided it was time to whip up a new version of protein bars!

Making my own bars has been something I’ve been doing for years now since beginning my journey to a healthier me. This way, I know exactly what’s going in them and avoid any strange ingredients.

This recipe is super simple to make and uses only 5 ingredients as the base ~ plus I added Hemp & Pumpkin seeds for some added nutrients!

Fueling your body properly is a HUGE factor for building confidence. I know personally when I wasn’t treating my body with respect ~ I had less energy, I constantly felt tired, and my skin was dull and oily… which of course only made me feel bad about myself.

I struggled a lot with my relationship with food and it wasn’t until I started making my favorite foods in a healthy way that my life truly began to change!

Dates instead of sugar?

Green juice instead of apple juice?

Pink Himalayan Salt instead of table salt?

Who knew such little changes could make such a huge impact!!

With these protein bars you’ll get the boost of energy you’re looking for in a way that supports the waist line.

I love to see you guys create my recipes (:
