Homemade protein bars: Give it a try

Staying home means experiencing a new routine: many people are taking advantage of the situation to do all things they normally don’t have the time for. Having indoor workouts, learning new fitness exercises and taking some time to cook are the top trending activities.

The homemade protein bars by our Executive Chef Matteo Maenza are perfect for such renovated habits. They are an ideal snack for all those who need to contrast their muscle catabolism, recovering the stored energy after workout. Also, they constitute a good dietary supplement for those who want to avoid hunger attacks when following a low carbs and low fats diet (always with a great attention to the balance of nutritional elements and without negatively affecting the daily carbohydrates intake).

Last but not least, they are healthy, fast to make, easy to storage and single portion. Have fun!
