Incredibly delicious, and healthy, coffee protein bars, made with ease in a muffin tin! They are vegan, gluten-free, and have 11 calories and 9 grams of protein each.
Oh, coffee. How I love you.
I know that it is not Valentine’s Day. Nor is it National Coffee Day (Who knew this exists? Now I–and you–do; it is September 29th :)). But I don’t need a special occasion to celebrate my affection for you; a Tuesday in the middle of May will do just fine.
These high-protein, quick and easy, coffee “cakes” (protein bars in the round) are even finer.
Coffee, it makes me crazy when ice creams claim to be espresso, cappuccino or mocha-flavored, yet taste very little like you, if at all. And what’s the deal with coffee cake? Why attribute a cake to your good name when you are only a suggested accompaniment. Sheesh.
Rest assured, that’s not the case with these healthy, high-protein treats. One nibble and “Kapow!” Not a sliver of doubt that these are all about coffee.
Yet these snacks provide multiple perks in one handy treat: namely, high protein (almost 9 grams each) and sweet tooth satisfaction, all for a mere 111 calories.
Here’s to you, coffee. And hurrah for these fantastically delicious coffee-inspired, protein bar “cakes.”
