Guys, get your aprons–your next workout’s in the kitchen. You throw back protein like nobody’s business. Shakes, smoothies, anything to up those grams, right? But you don’t have to burn out your blender or go broke buying boxes of pre-wrapped snacks. It’s easy to make your own bars, and this way you know you’re getting “clean fuel” from real, whole food ingredients. Each one of these chewy, chocolaty babies brings home 22 grams of quality protein, thanks to wholesome ingredients and top-of-the-line whey powder.
