Everyone loves dessert. This girl included! When it comes down to Thanksgiving dinner and I’m tempted with pies, cookies and other healthy desserts, it’s really hard for me to resist. Therefore, I always bring my own dessert (along with a fruit & veggie tray; yep! I’m that relative!). This year, I wanted to try something with pumpkin. I came across this recipe for Pumpkin Protein Bars and I knew that I had to try them! Pumpkin + Chocolate Chips, twist my arm, I’ll eat them!
I used a vanilla protein powder that I bought from my Monavie representative in Williston. If you want a good quality protein powder then I suggest using Monavie. I can get you my reps information if you’re interested, just let me know. If you don’t have time to place an order then Complete Nutrition by Sakura in Williston has protein powder as well.
These turned out even better than I had imagined! Mine puffed up and turned almost cake-like. They are very filling so I suggest eating only one at a time. Plus, they are guilt-free. Next time, I think I’ll try them as individual cookies rather than baking in a 9×13 pan. If you try that, let me know how it goes!
