Ginger Vanilla Protein Crunch Bars
"Can I take some of these to work?" was the question Jason asked after he tried one of these. We are always looking for protein bars that taste good and have some staying power for a between-meal treat.
I think the ginger in these bars is what Jason likes best.
These are a combination of some awesome flavors and textures - from the chewy spicy ginger to the mild coconut - the protein, almonds and oats make that filling snack we are always looking for.
About half the time I make these Ginger Vanilla Protein Crunch Bars, I have everything but corn flakes - that's the great thing about these bars, they are quick and easy with common ingredients. So, if you don't always have corn flakes on hand, use more oats!
The corn flakes really do add a another rich layer of flavor, though.
I have also made these using an Apple Cinnamon Protein Cereal in place of the corn flakes - while the corn flakes will always win for me, subbing your favorite cereal will bring different flavor - the Apple Cinnamon works well!
...or again - just use more oats!
It is ginger week at spabettie!
We love ginger in this house, and use it daily. Each morning starts with a fresh juice, including the fresh ginger root. We use the pickled (sushi) ginger a lot, and crystallized ginger is incorporated in baking as well.
We love the spicy heat and flavor of ginger.
