Even if I’m in a lazy cooking mode, I’m still picky about eating foods that are delicious and nutritious. That’s why I’ve put together easy to prepare, delicious tasting, no-bake proprietary mixes that are flexible for meeting various dietary needs. You’re in control of your sweetener of choice. You have the option of reducing or completely substituting the sweetener and using coconut oils to cut back on your sugar intake if that’s what suits you best.
Soft & Chewy Protein Bar Mix is a favorite with kids! Who doesn’t like peanut butter and honey!? This mix is flexible. If peanuts are a dietary issue, use another seed or nut butters. You can also cut back on the honey and use some coconut oil for lower sugar intake. We like to point out this blend contain milk – if dairy’s a no-no, you’ll need opt for SuperSEED.
