Protein bars are a very useful food to have on hand. They make for great snacks in place of candy, they are ideal for after exercise, can bridge the gap between meal replacement shakes, and can even be used as a meal replacement to help with weight loss.
However, many protein bars contain lots of sugar, sugar alcohols, artificial sweeteners, trans fats, and other unwanted ingredients. They can often be expensive too.
You can save money and make healthy protein bars by simply following any of these great recipes!

Hi Sarah, just started looking at your site. When you have these recipes for the homeaid bars how do they qualify for the 21 day challenge? How would you calculate this?
Thanks for your comment. Protein bars are high on proteins so for that reason you can count 1 red container. Than depending on the recipe, before adding the ingredients you can measure using the specific container to know how many you should count. For example, in the Muesli protein bar recipe, I use 1/2 banana, which is 1 purple container; 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk is 1 yellow container and so on. But remember, this recipe is for 8 protein bars. So if you have 2 protein bars for a snack remember to divide by 4. Hope I’ve helped. Have a great day.
