homemade protein bars

Meal prep is key to success when eating healthy. Planning ahead and making a batch of protein bars to eat throughout the week will ensure you have a healthy snack or breakfast ready whenever you need it! These bars are made mainly of sunflower seeds, which are a good source of healthy fats, protein and vitamin E, to name a few!


You will need:

1 cup sunflower  seeds

1/2 cup flax seeds

2 tablespoons of peanut butter

1 scoop of whey protein (we used vanilla)

1/2 cup oats

1 teaspoon of vanilla essence

2 tablespoons of honey or agave

2 tablespoon of melted coconut oil

2 tablespoons of coconut sugar (optional)

Dark chocolate for topping (optional - they taste great without it too!)
