Home-Made Chocolate Peanut Butter Pretzel Energy Bars

Feel ENERGIZED During Your Lift After This Sweet & Salty Sensation!

by ChefLuke - March 24th, 2016

The energy and protein bar industry make billions of dollars off revenue by creating these tasty, high protein candy bars that are “good for you”. These bars became so popular in the last decade because they are an easy way to get a meal in on-the-go. How sure can everyone be that these bars are good for our health though? Most energy bar labels will show the basic ingredients (oats, grains, and proteins) that go into the mixture.

However, extra sugars and added sweeteners are also tossed in, including sugar alcohol, which can cause digestive problems. The safer bet is to keep your money ($2.00-$3.65 for each bar), and to create your own energy bars so that you know where the ingredients come from.

There are many energy bar recipes out there to try, but I have spent hours in the kitchen developing what I like to think is the best energy bar recipe out there! They are called Gainz Barz! No baking is required, the ingredients are simple, and the evenly distributed macronutrients provide ideal energy needed for intense workouts! Give these Gainz Barz a shot and let me know how you like them!
