Hello, and Happy Foodie Friday! You know October is pumpkin season, right? Well it is. I am funny about protein bars. I am a texture kind of girl so a a lot of them just have a strange texture to me. The only one I have found, and I have tried a lot, are these One Protein Bars, and of course they are quite expensive. I also like fairly clean ingredients and am not crazy about fake sweeteners, though I can tolerate them some. The texture of these are lovely, and that is not an affiliate link I am just showing the one I really do like a lot. I like to keep protein bars on hand in my work bag just in case it is one of those days and a fast meal is the only thing to see my lips.
I have never actually made my own protein bars, but the one in the video below is so easy, and I have Vanilla Bean flavored protein powder already here at the house. My smoothie maker died, and I am not willing to buy another one right now, so protein bars would be great. Since it is pumpkin month, I thought maybe I should try to make these. It won’t be today, or even this weekend, because I work very long days, but I bet I can on Monday. I think the only ingredient I don’t already have is the pumpkin. I won’t use Almond Milk either, I don’t like it much. So, I will have to use regular milk, or evaporated milk. I will let you know if I make them, and how I like them. Monday, is also our next family cook off competition. I won’t give away the theme until Tuesday, when I share the results, but it is going to be interesting. It is my daughter vs. myself this time.
Let me know if you make these homemade pumpkin protein bars, or if you have a homemade protein bar recipe you would like to share, please post it in the comments.
