Proteins Bars and Mason Jars! No, I’m not gonna rap but feel free to steal that song title. Now what do both of these have in common? If you said you can easily take them on-the-go, congratulations…you win nothing. Today however, we’re making 3 quick and travel friendly desserts so that has to count for something!

To start you’ll need at least half pint mason jars and your favorite protein bar.

Recipe #1: PROTEIN BAR PARFAIT! Three ingredients that you’re gonna layer in. Start with a Greek yogurt (whatever flavor you want), on top of that some fruit, and then a third of a protein bar broken up. Repeat those steps until you have however many layers you want.

 The biggest thing with this one is that you just wanna make sure the flavors of the yogurt, fruit, and protein bar compliment each other which makes this recipe super easy to change up if you get bored with it.

Recipe #2: PROTEIN BAR TRAIL MIX! I can’t be the only one who loves trail mix here so I had to put my own spin on it…which is also the easiest recipe ever. Throw into your jar 1 ounce of cashews, 1/2 ounce of almonds, sunflower kernels, and dried mango, a couple yogurt raisins, and a broken up protein bar. Cover it and shake it to mix everything up!

The best thing about making your own trail mix is that you can change it up to suit your macros. Use any kind of dried fruit, seed, or nut you want…have fun with it!

Tip:

  • Add whatever you want into your trail mix!

Recipe #3: PROTEIN BAR DIRT PUDDING! I know a few of you have asked for me to get a little dirty on this channel, so here we go. In a food processor or blender add in 1/2 cup of cottage cheese, 2 tablespoons of cream cheese, 1 ounce of milk, 2 tablespoons of some cocoa powder, 1 serving of chocolate sugar free instant pudding, 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract, and an optional 1 teaspoon of sweetener. Mix those up then add your mix into a mason jar. Top your pudding with a crushed up protein bar making sure to crush it up as much as you can (it’s your dirt) and top it with a gummy worm.

How many of you guys have actually heard of dirt pudding before? Let me know in the comments below! I think it might have been a 90’s thing? Either way, it’s delicious and cottage cheese has casein in it which is a slow digesting protein. What’s that mean? It’s a way for me to justify eating it before bed. It makes me happy and I’ll stay full longer!!!
