Chai Protein Bars
We’re getting ready to go tent camping again this weekend and I made these Chai Protein Bars using Bob’s Red Mill Nutritional Boosters in my recipe. I love using these nutritional boosters because they are plant-based protein at its finest, they are also an excellent source of protein (20g per serving) and fiber. Skipping a meal won’t hurt a bit when you have these bars with you. They are sweetened with monk fruit and have probiotics and pre-biotic fiber. When you add all of the ingredients in these easy to make Chai Protein Bars you’ll want to skip a meal just to have one of these bars.

For camping I put each Chai Protein Bar in a snack bag. I keep them in the cooler because of the chocolate chips in them and besides that I live in Florida. Keeping them chilled ensures they stay in bar form and don’t become a chocolate mess.
These make the perfect afternoon snack. When you need a quick pick me up during the day try one of these bars. I had one today and mixed up the chocolate protein powder with a glass a milk and some ice. They make great smoothies too!
