These homemade protein bars are made of oats, chocolate and almonds. They’re quick, easy and a perfect healthy snack!
Let’s talk about “snugging.”
Not to be confused with “snuggLing.” No, this here word is a new creation from Mr. FFF.
Now, I know it sounds kind of cute. HOW-EV-ER, it is not.
It’s “snuggling”…from Hell.
The other day we were lying on the couch, watching “Chopped” (favorite!) and snuggling.
Or at least I THOUGHT that was what we were doing.
Suddenly, OUT OF THE BLUE, the Huberoni started INCESSANTLY poking me. It was an all-out, non-stop poke fest ya’ll.
I told him to stop. He did not listen.
I told him it hurt. He laughed (jerk.)
So, amidst the poking, I asked him what the heck he was doing.
He replied “I am snugging you.”
And that, my peeps, is my life. Welcome to the craziness that is the FFF household.
Sometimes I don’t even know who he is.
Thankfully, it was a one-time experience. I do not care to be “snugged” ever again in all the evers that I have left on planet Earth.
Even more thankfully, the Hub-o-rama left for work shortly after so I had a whole evening of “me-time” to recover from the traumatizing event.
You know what I turned to? Chocolate.
Because, it’s what normal people do. I know that you think that we are totally ca-ray-zay after above story, but I PROMISE we are normal.
But, I might be lying.
I have professed my undying love for all things chocolate and almond before in the form of healthy almond joy cheesecake, paleo chocolate lava cakes recipes with almond butter, whipped homemade almonds butter and baked donuts, so clearly that was where my brainular device landed.
HOW-EV-ER, I can’t confirm or deny that it was dinner time when I was seeking this comfort, so I figured I should incorparte some protein.
You know, to make it acceptable as a meal.
I thought about covering chicken with chocolate and almonds.
My head told me “No. That’s weird.”
Thankfully for both you and I, I decided upon homemade protein bars. A balanced meal in ONE bar that I could even send to work with Mr.FFF.
After eating 1 (read: 6) I decided to re-think above “sending to work with Mr.FFF”
These homemade protein bars are not meant to be shared guys.
Besides, he didn’t deserved such yumminess after what he had just put me through.
I also shared the Chocolate Protein Bars Recipe over at Food Fanatic – make sure to check it out there as well!
P.s Sorry for the lack of photos. I was tired that day.
