Peanut Butter (Protein) bars

It’s almost the weekend so here’s a new treat to try. This recipe was given to me by a dear friend and I’ve tweaked it just slightly with two of my favorite ingredients. Here again I’ve substituted avocado for butter and protein for flour. These are a delicious and decadent treat you can enjoy as a dessert, snack or even breakfast. Take these to your next group ride or gathering and they’re sure to be devoured!
