We know protein is important here at TT, but the communal tub of protein powder doesn’t always cut it. That’s why we developed these homemade energy bars to keep us focused throughout the day: Crunchy almonds are combined with smooth almond butter, cranberries, quinoa and oats to make chewy bars perfect anytime of day.

Oh, and for those currently in their bulking phase, each bar is packed with more than 10 grams of protein.
