It’s strange to admit, but we all like to be regular.
I mean that in the most TMI way possible.
Fiber. Are you thinking what I’m thinking?
Fiber helps you poop. It’s strange to admit to in public, but being regular is nothing but good. These Spiced Protein Fiber Bars are loaded with fiber, which helps you stay regular, which is good. #strangebutgood
The oat fiber, flax, coconut flour, and maca in these bars are great sources ‘o fiber. They also happen to taste good when mixed together with some vanilla protein and spices.
Entirely on accident, I made these gluten-free and vegan. Not to mention low carb. What’s even better is that they freeze well. Life is hectic. I’m not entirely sure what time zone I’m living in. Much like a good poo, quick grab-and-go snacks are golden.
In other regularity news, I’ve also found my daily gelatin to be invaluable.
Back to the bars though. They’re also good with chocolate-avocado “icing.” Just mash up 1/4 of an avocado, a tablespoon of cocoa powder, some cinnamon, and 405 drops of vanilla liquid stevia. If you like it spicy, make it Mexican chocolate icing with sprinkle of cayenne!
