Pumpkin Protein Bars

My daughter LOVES breakfast breads. I can easily health-ify them to Power- UP the fiber and down the sugar, then spread with butter to get some fat…but she needs protein, too.

It’s November and the season for all-things-pumpkin!

From a traditional pumpkin bread recipe, adding almond butter adds fiber, protein and fat. Then Plant Works vanilla protein powder boosts the protein & fiber further!

** This recipe can be made with out the plant works – just add 1 t of vanilla.
