Oatmega Protein Bars on their own are pretty legit. Not only do they taste delicious, but they’re gluten free, non-gmo, and they’re packed with 14 grams of grass-fed whey protein and 7 grams fiber, So yeah, better than the average bar.
But sometimes, a bar by itself just doesn’t hit the spot when it comes to dessert. If you’re looking for a way to turn your post-workout bar into a post-workout decadence, you’ve come to the right place.
Try one of these four fast and easy recipes that turn your Oatmega Protein Bars into protein-packed desserts.
