Well they can’t all be perfect can they!?  So, onto another recipe I was planning to post later in the week.  I actually had to recreate these protein bars a few times too before I got it down.  It was not a good weekend for me for cooking!

I think you’ll really like the fun twist on these protein bars.  Sprinkles just make everything better 🙂Funfetti Protein Bars ~ www.thehappyhealthfreak.com ~ #vegan #glutenfree #proteinbars
