Cherry Chocolate Energy BarsJump to recipe
These cherry chocolate energy bars are essentially a homemade RX Bar and instead of egg whites, we add collagen for protein. Let’s just say that they are super moist, nutty, sweet and salty–lots of great flavors in one bar! Enjoy the convenience, deliciousness and affordability of these gluten-free, dairy-free and egg-free bars for nutrition on the go!
Making Nutrition Easy As Pie (Without the Pie)
In today’s fast pace and busy lifestyle, most of you are short on time. And if you are short on total time in the day that means you are short on cooking time too. The good news is that you don’t have to settle for a sugar-laden, protein-depleted energy bar like Nature Valley or Pure Bar. The problem with “energy” bars is that they contain too much sugar and not enough fats and protein. That means that they cause blood sugar levels to spike and then crash soon after, sending your energy levels crashing too. Despite being called ‘energy bars’ many bars can actually reduce energy rather than increase it.
Your Homemade RX Bar
This recipe takes 15 minutes of total prep time an 25 minutes spent in the freezer and then you are good to go! This is essentially like a homemade RX Bar that includes nothing but nutrient-boosting ingredients such as cacao powder (raw form of 100% chocolate), chia seeds, almond butter, dried dark cherries and more! If you are short on time and cannot bare the thought of spending an additional 15 minutes preparing a recipe then stick with RX Bars or any other bar that fits my nutritional standards which generally at least 5 grams of fats, 3 grams of dietary fiber and 10 grams of protein.
