Everyone loves a good granola bar! Unfortunately most granola bars on the market are loaded with sugar and unhealthy oils, and don't have much fiber or protein. Whenever I recommend snacks to my clients I always make sure they're balanced with protein, fiber, and healthy fats. That's why I created this granola bar recipe - it checks all three boxes with protein from egg, peanut butter, nuts, seeds, and optional collagen peptides, fiber from oats, and healthy fat from nuts & seeds.
Each of these bars (recipe makes 8 bars) has 15 g of protein and 6 grams of fiber, which is much more than your typical granola bar. They're easy to make, delicious, and so filling you can even eat one for a convenient breakfast! Enjoy!
