No-Bake Vegan Protein Bars
Many people who embark on a lifestyle change can often become discouraged by adding too much too soon to their daily routine. A tried and true solution to that is to be innovative with the basics such as running, plyometrics and good old-fashioned cooking at home. A simple rule to remember is KEEP it simple. Drastic diets and lifestyle changes lead many to stray. Simplicity ensures that your changes are rewarded with staying power and motivation. There are a number of brand name food products out there that you can buy to help you stay nourished and satisfied along the way, or you can make the exact same product fresh at home (minus all of the icky preservatives).
After a weight-bearing workout session, the body craves protein to rebuild the muscles broken down during a workout. This no-bake, vegan and protein-rich bar blends only 4 ingredients: the chewy goodness of dates, the power of peanut butter, the crunch of almonds and the palate-pleasing taste of chocolate. Easy Life chocolate chips are completely dairy-free lending this protein-packed snack to be completely vegan! Have fun incorporating your own favorite flavor combinations into these vegan protein bars by using the dates as the base for all of your creations.
Keep vegan protein bars refrigerated to maintain their shape and firmness.
