These no bake bars are simple to prepare and make a wonderful speedy pre and post workout snack.
They also freeze well - take them out 30 minutes before you need them to energise your training session. For a protein boost use chocolate protein powder rather than raw cacao powder. Instead of a bar you can roll the mixture into small walnut size balls.
