"This is our rendition of a protein bar to have for quick meal/snack options that you can make at home. We really liked this one... not too sweet. We use fruit juice sweetened dried cranberries. You can set aside some of the nut mixture if you'd like to put on top, but it makes for messy bars."

  • You can play around with the type of dried fruits you use, we do. Try papaya and some coconut for tropical bars or apples for a nice apple cinnamon bar.
