This week my son has started tennis camp so I anticipate that my grocery bill will double in the next few days.  At 15 years old and 6’3″ tall he has an incredible metabolism and resembles a string bean no matter how much he eats.  This morning’s breakfast included a protein shake, fruit, toast and trail mix.  I pray that is enough to tide him over until he gets home for lunch!  I made this energy bar recipe to help refuel him after his rigorous workout.  If you have active kids, you need to make sure you provide a diet loaded with protein and carbohydrates and Premier Protein powder makes adding protein to your baked goods incredibly easy!

Premier Protein has created a new 100% Whey Protein Powder.  It comes in a 3 pound tub and provides 30 grams of protein per scoop with 180 calories and 2 grams of sugar.  It is available in both Chocolate and Vanilla and contains no artificial flavors, colors, or sweeteners.  You can easily make a delicious smoothie with it or add it to your pancakes, cookies, muffins or your favorite energy bar recipe. It is also gluten free which is a huge perk for people with dietary restrictions!

Premier Protein and Energy Bar Recipe

This energy bar recipe was incredibly easy to make and requires NO cooking!  You just melt the almond butter and honey, throw in a few other healthy and nutritious ingredients and then chill for a few hours.  Once they are firm, you will get about 15 small energy bars which (if your are lucky!) will last about a week for one hungry athlete!
