Author Notes

Homemade protein bars are an easy, less-expensive alternative to store-bought ones, and these are even better because they taste nothing like a typical "protein bar". —Hungry Haley

  • Serves 6-8
Ingredients
  • 1/2 cup sunflower seed butter
  • 1/2 cup shredded carrots

  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon ginger
In This Recipe
Directions
  1. Stir together the sunflower seed butter, protein powder, maple syrup, and spices until combined. Gently fold in the carrots and dates.
