Peanut Butter Protein Bars

I introduce to you your new favorite protein bar. I’m so glad the two of you are now formally acquainted, because a long, happy future spent together will certainly be the result. With a measly five minutes of preparation, 89 cents, and 23.8 grams of protein it’s no wonder you’re already in love.

The nice thing is we don’t mind sharing, and also, these protein bars taste better than anything that your local supermarket can offer.
