Homemade Protein Bars and Fuel

Last week, I mentioned some of my favorite dance and running fuel. Unfortunately, some of those can get quite expensive (paying 2-3 dollars per bar or gels can add up in a hurry). Another issue arises: many of us have allergies and intolerances (I may or may not–I’m not sure–have a slight soy intolerance). While I’ve been able to find many bars and supplements that meet my needs, they often come with a high price tag. So over the next few weeks, I’m looking to try some new recipes to make my own homemade bars. Here are some of the recipes I’m looking at:

I love the sounds of these, and that they use coconut oil and Greek yogurt!

These looked really, really simple. They also seem to have the same consistency as real food barre and other similar bars–and while I’m not the hugest fan of it, it does make the bars easy to eat. I also love that they don’t have huge chunks of nuts, because sometimes I want something that is nut-free.

These look absolutely delicious, and I love that they include rice crisp cereal and chocolate, which will be perfect when I want something desert-like but also want to get in some protein as well!

If you have any suggestions or any recipes (or dietary guidelines) that you’d like me to test out, let me know! I’d love to know what recipes you’ve found work really well (or not so well). I’m also on the hunt for a yummy baked oatmeal recipe after my last one horribly failed.

Do you buy or make your own protein bars? Why?
