Pumpkin season is in full swing AND I’M HERE FOR IT!! I love this time of year, the leaves changing, nights are cooler, sweaters, booties, and all the seasonal foods!! I’ve shared on Instagram several times that one of my favorite protein brands is Earth Fed Muscle due to their simple ingredients and amazing flavor! I always recommend getting most if not all of your nutrition from whole food sources, however I know at times its tough! So when in a pinch I highly recommend Earth Fed Muscle and for this time of year, specifically, their “Witches Whey” which is the Pumpkin Spice flavored powder! Guys it has freeze dried REAL pumpkin in it WHOA! Anyway, knowing my love for pumpkin all things they asked me for a couple of recipes made with the revamped formula that now is Grass Fed. That’s how my power bars were born, I’ve done a couple of versions of this recipe without pumpkin before, but these bad boys were off the hook! My husband is at times a true critic of “protein baked goods” hes feels like they can be dry and bland, so to get his approval was EPIC!
