I have a weird relationship with protein bars. In theory, I’m not the biggest fan of using protein powders to replace other whole-food proteins in your diet. In reality, life is far too hectic too hectic to casually whip up a grilled chicken breast or hard boiled egg.

I’d rather have a healthy protein bar ready to go rather than bank on having time to make a healthy snack. And let’s be honest, I’m barely home enough for that to be a possibility.

So protein bars are kind of my jam. Bars and balls are my go-to on-the-run snacks and if you were to open up my purse right now you’d likely find at least two varieties. If you struggle with “hanger”, I highly recommend whipping up a batch of these Mocha Protein Bars on the weekend to snack on through the week….
