Yes, I know a green protein bar is a really weird concept to wrap our heads around, let alone eat…  but you gotta admit, it’s pretty fascinating  ;)  And once you think about it, people eat green sweets all the time!  Like green Lucky Charm marshmallows and green Fruit Loops…  or Granny Smith apples and kiwis, for those who eat au naturel.

I mean, look at those chocolate drizzles.  A generous drizzling of chocolate can make anything taste better, and it sure did the trick here.  I don’t even like matcha and I loved these protein bars!  Fun, easy, healthy — these are the perfect treats to keep on hand for long and busy days.  Or any day at all, really.

I genuinely love love love my Abnormal Psychology class, but I really looked forward to it being over so I could eat one of these green things  ;)

To be honest, I was just making these protein bars for myself…  I wasn’t planning on posting the recipe.  There are so many health benefits to organic green tea and matcha, so I try to incorporate them into my diet any way possible.  Unfortunately, it’s hot here in Arizona so I don’t like drinking tea (plus, my heart belongs to iced coffee), and I’m not a big fan of green tea supplements.

But when I posted these pictures on my Instagram …

Chocolate Therapy Cakes tend to be, well, “therapeutic” in the sense that the cake immerses you into a deep, food- and sugar-induced coma.  Therapy Cakes tend to be the unhealthiest types of cakes out there so it’s understandable if you think this one will be too…  but this one is different…  this one is healthy! I’m […]

I don’t like psyllium.  Never did, never will.  When it’s dissolved into water, juice, smoothies, etc it turns into this disgusting gel-like goo.  Not to mention, it clumps up and feels like you’re swallowing that bubble tea that everyone seems to like (except me, of course…  I’m the pickiest eater of all) I guess that’s why […]

I’ve made healthy Cinnamon Rolls before, but like I explained in that post, they weren’t the most authentic-tasting (you know, the completely artificial stuff that comes in a tube at the grocery store… or those giant, trans fat-filled buns at the mall slathered with about a pound of butter each?).  Well, I revamped my previous recipe to make […]
