Skinny Vanilla Bean Protein Cake Bars

I’m beefing up thanks to my Skinny Vanilla Bean Protein Cake Bars. Yup, I have officially learned the difference between biceps and triceps. This is not a joke. I have “worked out” for years and years as a little cardio bunny, but recently fell head-over-sneakers in love with weights. Ry (hub) got me dumbbells for my birthday. I’ve told a few people that and they’ve been like, “Lol – cute hint, Ry. Trying to get Jordan to do her squats,” but I was the nerd in Target stocking my cart with the cutest dumbbells on God’s green planet.Skinny Vanilla Bean Protein Cake Bars by Skinny Girl Standard, a low calorie food blog. If you lift weights, you probably have an obsession with protein too. So recently, I’ve been experimenting. And this is my new favorite recipe. You should also know that I get my protein from Get Ripped Nutrition, and if you use the promo-code skinnygirlstandard on their website, you may just get a nice surprise discount. Skinny Vanilla Bean Protein Cake Bars by Skinny Girl Standard, a low calorie food blog. Here are some of my favorite baking items to use when making Skinny Vanilla Bean Protein Cake Bars:

Marble Rolling Pin I  Bronze Measuring Cup Set I Old Dutch Copper Serving Tray I Beehive Cupcake Tin I Bronze Baker I Non-Stick Bakeware from WayfairPastry Blender

Favorites? Marble Roller, duh. & Obviously I am losing it over that Beehive Cupcake Tin because, um, it’s the coolest. Also, give me that Pastry Blender. It comes in handy.

      Tracey,

      Yay! I’ve become addicted to lifting, which I suppose is not such a bad thing to love 🙂 Recently I’ve been stealing my hubby’s stuff. Combat Chocolate Milk is my go-to as of now! I have a few Muscle Milk powders, but they’re still shelved for the moment. What about you? Have you tried the Quest protein powder mix? That’s my next stop.

      Xox & God bless,
      Jordan

      Assuming that you are using a carb-free protein powder, you’re looking at about 9g of carbs per bar. Xoxo
