Now that we are all moved & somewhat settled – we are back on our normal gym schedule. It feels really good to get back into our regular routine. One new thing I am happy to be doing is making our own snacks. I have discussed before that I am now well over a year of making nothing but homemade breakfasts for the kids. Well we have branched into beyond breakfast & I am experimenting with protein bars to have as a snack before heading to the gym. One of our favorites lately – these Chocolate Date Bars. You would never guess that they are dairy free, packed full of protein & good for you because they are just so tasty. I feel like I’m having a treat. Let me show you just how easy they are to make.
These whip up in just a few minutes – no baking.
Just process, press into the pan & freeze for about 15 minutes. Simple!
The kids love these – I ended up having to make a second batch right away because these were gone in minutes.
Even with a busy as life gets – you don’t have to compromise maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Recipes like these make it easy.
I love that they are dairy free – everyone in the house can enjoy.
There are so many varieties of Silk Almond Milk now too.
