Happy Monday! I hope you had a great weekend! Mine was very busy getting myself back into my normal routine! It was nice to see the sun out though! However, today we are expected to get 3-5 inches of snow and rain! Fingers crossed that it sticks with rain and the snow stays far far away! ๐Ÿ™‚

Today’s recipe is being dedicated to my sister! Last week she asked me to make a protein bar that was moderate in carbs and had bananas, raisins and cinnamon. After a few failed attempts (they tasted great but just didn’t come out of the pan in 1 piece! haha) I finally got one that worked and tastes delicious!! It also includes a few of my favorites ingredients – Designer Whey and Mila!  These bars are definitely one for the nutrition charts since they are loaded with healthy, clean ingredients! I hope you enjoy them! ๐Ÿ™‚

These bars have a flavor punch that you just can’t beat!! Bananas with warm cinnamon and sweet raisins …yum! They are soft and chewy too, not hard! Wrap them in plastic wrap and store in a ziploc for the perfect grab and go snack!

I guess once I eat the yummy trial and error batch I will need to try the new and improved version for comparison! Keep cooking and baking Sista-Love! You inspire us all! Xoxo

  • Anything cinnamon and raisin has got to be a winner! I'm off to look up Mila though . . . I'm not familiar with it. Yet. :)

  • Sarah, these look delicious and pack a great amount of protein. Nice work :) happy Monday!!

  • YUMMY! I have been loving bananas lately and will save one for this recipe! I have all the ingredients, but will have to sub the Mila for chia and Designer Whey for my Raw Organic. I'll let you know how they turn out. Now I just have to find the time. HA! Stay warm today...UGH!

    Hey! These look delicious! I make something similar and I always love them! I think cinnamon and raisin are just the most amazing combination...Also the use of designer whey helps! I use it in all my recipes along with trutein protein powder, if you haven't tried it I highly recommend it for baking!

  • YUMMM! I cannot wait to make these this week! Except, I might have to sub coconut flour for almond flour because I am not home and without my regular kitchen and ingredients! But I cannot wait, I love cinnamon raison banana!!!
