Protein Pumpkin Bars
Happy #TastyTuesday! I’m just over here living the “basic girl” dream of pumpkin this and pumpkin that. This recipe has been my absolute favorite go-to snack lately and who can blame me? It is freaking delicious (and nutritious)! Pumpkin is an incredible source of Vitamin A, Vitamin C, antioxidants and fiber. And with more potassium than a banana, pumpkin is a great post workout recovery food. Top a bar with natural nut butter for a healthy snack or serve with a spoonful of fresh whipped cream for a great dessert. I promise once you have tried these bars you will be excited to be “basic”.
