10 High Protein Power Bars & Balls


I have needed some fresh inspiration in the power bar department.

Naturally I turned to Pinterest (you can follow me here) and a few of my buddies.

I can barely wait to start making my way through this tasty list.

And because I am all about trying to keep things simple, I decided to make the criteria for this recipe round-up "10 ingredients or less" as well as gluten-free, dairy-free, and egg-free.

I hope you are inspired to break out that food processor and join me in some power ball (and bar) fun!
