Almond Coconut Protein Bars With Hemp Seeds
These vegan and gluten-free treats are a great alternative to store-bought protein bars. They’re full of healthy fats and carbohydrates, and the hemp seeds and almonds give you a full serving of protein in just one bar. Even better—no baking is required! Just mix together the ingredients, place in the refrigerator and you have yourself the perfect pre-work out snack (Photo via Running on Real Food).
