I swear I’m not here only to make you binge on desserts and let your pants out! Contrary to what my blog may portray, we actually eat fairly healthy here at home (due to Nick’s influence, I can’t take credit!). Nick had asked me awhile ago to make him some protein bars that he had found online at Muscle & Fitness. While I followed the recipe exactly, they came out quite soupy and not the least bit edible. Not too long after that, It’s Melissa’s Kitchen featured protein bars that had very similar ingredients, but they came out MUCH better. Nick liked them and said they had a really nice flavor.
