Collagen Chocolate Chip Bars

These high protein, low calorie collagen chocolate chip bars taste decadently sweet and have a great texture but pack extra health benefits from the collagen peptide proteins they are baked with!

Happy 2018 friends! The start of a new year often comes with new health and fitness goals and it feels slightly strange for me to say it...but this is the first year in awhile I don't really have a weight related goal for the year.  I'm still happily maintaining my 100 pound weight loss and just want to keep on keeping on in that area. That's not to say I don't have overall goals for my health though.  The start of a new year is a great time to focus on overall wellness a and part of that is analyzing parts of my health that could be better.


Specifically speaking, I have noticed a lot of hair loss/thinning recently and it has led to me researching ways that I can naturally promote thicker, healthier hair and prevent more thinning.  I'm trying a few different options but part of my research led to me discovering collagen which seems to have TONS of health benefits including healthier skin, hair and nails, it supports bone and joint health, contributes to weight management, and helps support a healthy gut.

The brand Vital Proteins was recommended to me on my instagram page and I recently had a chance to try their products for my first time and I'm VERY pleased with my first experience!

Collagen is a type of protein so for my first use I decided to use it in baking.  These chocolate chip bars turned out SO GOOD! Baking with protein can sometimes lead to a baked good with a dry texture if not mixed with the right ingredients/ratios but that was NOT the case with these bars at all.  They are gluten free, low calorie, low in sugar but still high in protein AND taste.  My boyfriend declared them the best "protein baked good" I had ever made before!

WOOT! That's a win for me: they taste delicious, have great nutrition stats, packs tons of extra health benefits from the collagen, and are still man approved.  Here's the breakdown on the nutrition and how to make them!
