No-Bake Almond Butter Protein Bars

Who remembers eating snickers ice cream bars as kids? I used to beg my mom to let me have them from the after-school snack bar and every now and then she’d cave and let me have one. These no bake almond butter protein bars taste really similar, only they have NO refined sugar and they are packed with collagen peptides. If you’re not familiar, collagen improves joint health, reduces joint stiffness, and builds bone strength. I add a scoop of Further Food Collagen to my tea in the morning, acai bowls and add it to my no-bake energy balls. Further Food Collagen contains 18 amino acids, including 8 essential amino acids, that aid in muscle and ligament repair, flexibility, and recovery. This makes these protein bars a great pre or post-workout snack, or even dessert.

Further Food Commentary:

As an alternative to classic peanut butter, almond butter contains a higher amount of essential fatty acids and contains the healthy unsaturated fats. Almond butter also contains water and fat soluble vitamins, which are needed to replenish the bodies' function and can aid in growth and development. 1 tablespoon of almond butter consists of 100 calories, 10 g fat, 1 g saturated fat, 0 mg cholesterol, 0 mg sodium, 4 g carbohydrates, 1 g dietary fiber, and 2 g protein. With ground the preferred way to use, flaxseeds (aka linseeds) can aid in the digestion function and reduce one's risk for heart disease, type II diabetes, and cancer. A 1 ounce/3 tablespoon serving of flaxseed also provides 6338 mg of omega 3 fatty acids, 8 g fiber, 6 g protein and a bounty of vitamin B1, manganese, magnesium, phosphorus and selenium.
