I know they're not technically considered clean, but I eat 'em. I like Wonderslim Crisp n Crunch bars from Diet Direct (have to order them) and the Labrada Lean Body Gold Bars the best, although I can only eat 1/2 of the latter at a time because they are so freakin' huge!

emoticon so much, Didi! :) I love that I can purchase all the ingredients at my local produce store, which is not only quite a bit cheaper than the local supermarket, but also has much better quality & selection of produce as well. Thanks again! :)

I only use protein bars as a last resort. I do have them around to stash in my purse when necessary. As already mentioned I too choose Luna, they are one of the most natural ones out there.

Every day is *the day.* Dream it. Live it. Love it...with all your heart & soul.

Apple Cinnamon Chia Granola

1 cup steel cut oat meal
1/2 cup hemp protien powder
1/2 cup chia seeds
1 cup sunflower seeds
1/2 cup unhulled sesame seeds
1 apple diced
1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
honey to taste( I sometimes use Stevia)
1/4 tsp sea salt
1/4 cup hemp oil (or flax oil)
1/4 cup molasses
2 tbsp apple juice

Pre-heat oven to 250F. Mix dry ingredients. Blend liquid ingredients to a smooth texture. Add liquid to dry and mix well. Spread on a baking sheet lightly coated with oil.
Bake for 1hour.
Let cool, then break up into small clusters.

NOTE...Bake at 250F instead of 350F to prevent EFA'S in the hemp and chia from converting to trans fat.

I made this recently and it's good. looking for my protein bar receipe.

Luna Protein Bars have sugar but no "artificial crap". They taste really good, are very filling and are fortified with calcium.

Didi, I'd be really interested in your recipe for protein bars, even though they have to be refrigerated. I'm looking for something that I can make at home.

Blessings,
Michelle :)

I like them. But I don't eat 100% clean either.

I don't bother with protein bars. I'll drink a protein shake that I make with just whey protein and some cocoa powder, but not the bars. I'd rather just have chicken or fish.

Jamieson has a "Slim Down" bar that I use when I don't have time to make a meal... It only has 15 g of protein though... I can't remember the ingredients, but I remember it being the best choice... YOu should check it out.

I sometimes make my own.....still looking for a recipe that i could transport in the summer months as my bars need to be refridgerated.

I really don't like the taste of the commercial bars so I don't use them.

Are protein Bars considered 'clean'. They have so much junk in them and way too much sugar and artificial crap (i think i just answered my own question!) All the fitness magazines recommend them including oxygen which promotes clean eating. I dont understand how people can justify eating them. Whats your take on this? Do you use protein bars?
