Good morning! I have quite a little treat for you today 🙂 I was inspired by a project DailyBurn is working on this spring season and decided to see what I could come up with. The focus? Protein-packed meals/snacks/pre-workout recipes that will be shared on their Facebook page as a way to provide their followers with some new breakfast recipes, bar recipes, pre-workout recipes, fuel-for-long-days recipes, etc. As I am often on the go and working out a lot, proper meals and snacks with a strong protein base is necessary in order to keep me satisfied and fueled properly to get through whatever crazy things I have on any particular day.
This request couldn’t have come at a more perfect time because I had just made some peanut butter banana oat bars and wanted to tweak the recipe a little. I had stumbled on the idea of making these bars when I saw Athena tease us on Instagram with this recipe and because I was trying to find a way to use up the HUGE jar of peanut butter I had picked up at BJ’s. I also had some very ripe bananas that needed to be used, so it was really just a recipe waiting to happen! By going by the look of Athena’s bars and perusing the internet for some other bar “staples”, I ended up creating a recipe all on my own- something that’s not always easy for me when it comes to baking!
