Homemade Protein Bars

Mar 24, 2014 02:17PM
Protein Bars and Meal Replacement Shakes are popular for sensible weight loss and fitness people on the go. The ones you find in the supermarket and health food stores are great choices but can often be quite expensive and sometimes laden with a lot of unwanted ingredients and  as unhealthy as a candy bar! So we've found a few favorite of our own on the web and we are glad to  share them with you. Made with love and from the goodness of your own kitchen! Enjoy and Bon Appetit!

 

The first one is from a site called Money Saving Mom. We like her. She helps busy mom's like us  keep in shape and also keep our hard earned dough in our wallet and our waistlines trim! For the rest of her recipe go to her site....you LOVE it!
