Peanut Butter Protein Breakfast Bars (GF + V)

With snow on the ground, I think it’s safe to say that it’s very cold outside.  So perhaps take this as a hint to put your yogurt or chia seed pudding aside for a new, warm breakfast.  Solution: gluten-free and vegan peanut butter protein breakfast bars.

It has everything to make the perfect winter breakfast.

  • warm
  • grounding
  • chocolatey
  • balanced

With all the running around and early mornings, a breakfast that keeps you full and energized is super important.  This does just that.  The protein from the peanut butter and plant-based protein powder, and the fiber from the oatmeal and chia seeds make your tummy happy (and for a long time).  Not to mention the bliss that chocolate brings 🙂

It’s like having a dessert minus the guilt: Dessert – Guilt = Happiness!

Aside from the nutritional benefits, you can make this recipe really quickly and it’ll last you a whole week.  It’s a timesaver!  In fact, you might even spend more time assembling cereal and milk than grabbing one of these peanut butter protein bars.
