I love a good protein bar, but here is my issue: High-protein bars can come with huge price tags, at times as high as $4 per bar. And, unbelievable is the ingredient list on many of the bars: hydrolyzed gelatin, glycerin, soy protein isolate, high fructose corn syrup, fractionated palm kernel oil, and artificial sweeteners, flavors, colors, and preservatives. Gross! Your body is a temple, and you shouldn’t add that crap to your body.
These Raw Cashew Protein Bars are a take on Kure Juice’s Kure Bars that you can make for yourself right at home. They are loaded with so many good-for-you ingredients and taste absolutely amazing!
