Pumpkin Protein Bars

Wednesday Wisdom: Healthy Snacks: Here is a recipe by Jamie Eason – healthy protein bars (more like protein cakes) to snack on in between meals. This recipe makes 24 squares and she recommends 4 squares per serving (I find they are quite filling and only ever snack on 1 or 2).

Nutritional Information: Per square (with walnuts)*:
