Grain-Free Protein Bars

It’s hard to believe that we are done with the 3rd week of January already! Last week we had 5 or 6 cold dreary days before we had sunshine. This week we’ve had warm sunny days until today when we had rain and cold temperatures again.  Winter in the South..you have to love it!

My Christmas cactus finally decided to bloom, and the other day I noticed that only half of it is blooming!! I guess the other half decided to rest this year!

The hubby is still working hard keeping to the THM eating plan and has added lots of exercise to his days.  While his weight loss is still only about 20 pounds down, his clothes look like they are beginning to hang more loosely on him!

I came across this recipe on the THM Face book page several weeks ago and finally decided to make it today.  It is an easy recipe to make and is full of flavor.

My batch of these protein bars I used a mixture of almonds and sunflower seeds since that is what I had on hand. I also used powdered Stevia instead of liquid since I have none of that.  For the chocolate topping I used 2 oz of 85% chocolate and mixed about 2 tsp. of stevia into it before spreading it over the top.  Delicious!
