Protein Bar Haul 

Hi lovely people …we are super excited to share some of our favorite protein bars with you all. It’s hard to find good protein bars that had the right ingredients and taste good…. (we’ve had our fair share of both good and bad) SOOO. Below you guys can find a little list of our favs and a little description on why! Hope you all enjoy ! Happy protein bar snack’n babes 
1. NugoBars…They taste real guys. Say goodbye to those icky protein tasting bars. They aren’t chewy or chalky.just plain Deliciousness. My favorite is the Nugo Dark: chocolate pretzel with sea salt … I’m not kidding probably have at least one a day! It’s vegan which is awesome by the way, as well as gluten free. So all you guys that need some delicious gluten free options hit up Nugo nutrition. So yum. They also have a vanilla yogurt that has 11 g of protein which we love with breakfast in the morning! They have some recent products that are Organic as well as NugoSlim! So CHECK THEM OUT. promise you will fall in loveeee. 

2. Nocow Bar: No Cow Bar’s, by D’s Naturals are a new find and we are so obsessed with their texture and flavors! They have 21g of protein which is great for all of our fellow Vegan followers! They have only 4g net carbs and only 1g of sugar! That is so amazing.

The bars are dairy free, soy free, gluten free, Vegan, Non-GMO, and taste fantastic!! We especially love the Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip flavor. We think it tastes great a room temperature, or feel free to melt it a bit in the microwave for about 10-15 seconds! It gives the bar that “soft warm straight out of the oven” texture that is literally to die for! The bar is even a great topping for your morning yogurt or just to have as a snack during the day when you need something a little sweet.  

Other flavors include:

Blueberry Cobbler

Lemon Meringue Pie

Raspberry Truffle

Chocolate Fudge Brownie

Mint Cocao Chip

Dark Raspberry Truffle

Chocolate Banana Bread

Super loving this nutritious snack and they even are selling a healthy version of Nutella, which they call “Fluffbutter!” Check it out on their site: https://nocowrevolution.com/

 3: Lennie and Lerry’s cookies : so yum. We love putting these in our nana Ice creams. They are so good as a sweet treat! Dairy free, and 8 G protein in a serving you can’t go wrong. They have so many yummy flavors ! (The boyfriends even love, so you know they’re good haha) 


4: Thunderbird: cashew, fig, carrot bar … this one is newer to the line up!… TOTAL WIN. All fresh ingredients… raw, vegan, no grain, and only 3 g of fat. Babes, this one is absolutely amazing. It’s a nice change up from the chocolate or super sweet option. It’s so natural tasting … I mean it has no added sugar it’s 100% real and a great option. 
So there you have it ! Some of our top favorites. This post is NOT sponsored. These are genuinely bars we eat often and enjoy! Xo.

Cookie Tray: BEST OF BOTH WORLDS

Hello wonderful people! So today Jess and I worked hard in the kitchen to put together a cute cookie tray for a birthday celebration. We decided to make two creations from our grandma’s secret recipe book( not VEGAN) and then transformed one of her recipes vegan! We are so excited to share the recipe we can up with.. Introducing our vegan twist on vegan Molasses powder puff Cookies! Super yummy, and  perfect for the winter season! Pictures and recipe details below!

Ingredients:1 tbsp flax+3 tbsp of water= 1 egg 1/2 cup of cold coffee 1/2 cup of sugar2 tsp baking soda 1/3 cup Earth balance 1 tbsp of vinegar
1/2 molasses 1 tsp cinnamon 1/4 tsp cloves 1/4 tsp ginger3 cups of white unbleached flour ( you can use a little more if needed)


Directions:

Oven on 425 degrees. Cookies will be in the oven for 10-12 minutes.

Cream earth balance sugar together. Then add all wet ingredients together. Add the dry ingredients. The batter will be a tad sticky, so we suggest putting in the freezer for about 15-30 min. Take the dough out and role into balls about a quarter size in diameter( should be the size of a small ping pong ball).  Roll in powdered sugar. Pop in oven for about 10-12 minutes or so. Let cool and enjoy!! Great paired with a warm cup of hot cocoa or coffee by the fire with friends and family!!

Simple. easy. and oh so delicious!– XO
