Recipe: Banana Protein Bars

Beau and I are always throwing around ideas. Always. And most of the time when I have a food idea he is quick to add, "are you adding protein into it!?!" And sometimes I have to cave, like I've done with this recipe. These are a really handy little snack for before training. The banana and the carbohydrates in the oats will give you energy and the protein in them will help with your recovery! I decided to use a chia and flaxseed sprinkle in this, the one I have contains chia seeds, pumpkin seeds, flaxseed, sultanas and a bunch of other things!
