Everything’s Good Protein Bar

I started off planning to make muffins but went in a completely different direction. These bars are loaded with healthy fats, B vitamins, fiber, protein, phytonutrients, iron, manganese, omegas… the list keeps going and going. They’re absolutely delicious with a tall, cold glass of almond milk. Great for an after workout snack or breakfast on the go.
