If you like the idea of what a protein bar brings to the table, you know—nutrition, pick-me-up, post-workout recovery—I suggest you try making your own. The protein bar pictured above is one I’ve been making lately. Okay, bit of a fib in that last line; it’s one my wife’s been making lately. The only thing I do is shove it in my mouth. You store them in the fridge because they don’t have fractionated palm kernel oil and butylated hydroxytoluene to make them shelf stable. I pack them in my lunch, and sometimes I’ll warm it in the microwave for ten seconds and have it with my breakfast.
