Peanut Butter and Jelly Homemade Protein Bars

I’ve probably mentioned this before, but I am a HUGE protein bar fan. They’re basically candy bars (but with more protein and less fat/carbs – hopefully) I few brands that I really enjoy are:

Quest Bars

Detour Bars (the Smart bars and the low-sugar ones)

Luna Bars

Power Bars (the vanilla yogurt ones)

Combat Crunch Bars

One day I would also like to try Krush bars and Bupbars, but haven’t been able to find them in Canada yet, and don’t want to pay duties 🙂

Fortunately for my wallet, I also enjoy making my own bars
