Quality pre-workout fuel can make or break your exercise and energy. This sounds like common sense, yet the majority of the easily digestible protein bars and energy chews on the market are laced with artificial sweeteners, food dye, and poor quality oil and fillers.

The solution? Make your own!!

Not into exercise? These also work well for an afternoon snack and even a unique dessert for your next cookout!
