Jamie Eason's Lemon Protein Bars

I love protein bars. I mean if you know me, you know I love Quest Bars, but sometimes they are high in points and calories, so I like ones that give you just the right amount of low fat and high protein and I was given these bars.

A friend of mine gave me some recipes for low calorie, high protein bars from the  Body Building website. Jamie Eason is a fitness guru and one of my ultimate people I want to look like someday. She is all fitness I want to be and make these bars and they are amazing. She has a couple different flavors. They are easy, quick and delicious. I have made each kind and I can't pin point which one I enjoy the most.

I made these Lemon Bars today and I love them. They are refreshing and perfect for a quick protein fix. I have them as a snack, breakfast and a side of lunch. One serving is two bars, 86 calories and 2pp+ for the serving.

Hit the link to find the recipe on Body Building, but here it is now also for your convince.
