Protein Breakfast Bar

By Ted KallmyerUpdated August 21, 2022

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day but we don’t all have the luxury of time in the morning to sit down and have a big nutritious breakfast. These protein breakfast bars are the perfect grab and go breakfast option for busy people.

These breakfast bars are made with all whole foods and are perfect for keeping to full until lunch with slow releasing energy. The recipe included a protein powder, I’ve used Protein World Slender blend in Vanilla, but you can swap it out for any plain or vanilla protein of your choice.

The recipe makes around 12 bars, so I like to make these up in batches and freeze them to use another time.
