Mothers Day Protein Bars

     Knowing that some mothers like to celebrate in a healthy way, give macro friendly treats that mom will treasure.  One fun idea I had was to turn my Quest Protein Bars into a spotlight on M.O.M.  Then add a little protein frosting and you will have a cute surprise to put a smile on her face.  Nothing makes me happier than receiving high protein low carb non guilty pleasures.  For me, these are the best gifts of all.

Ingredients for M.O.M.~
1 Quest Protein Bar (good options are  Coconut Cashew, Chocolate Peanut Butter, Rocky Road)
1 Tablespoon Butter
1 ounce reduced fat Cream Cheese
1/4 cup Swerve Confectioners Erythritol
1 scoop unflavored Vital Protein Collage Peptides
1-2 teaspoons 30 cal/cup Almond Milk
Dash Vanilla Extract
Dash Butter Extract

     Make sure to choose a Quest Bar with out a coating, or filled with chunks, best options are Coconut Cashew, Chocolate Peanut Butter, or Rocky Road.  Divide bar into 3 equal parts, microwave for 10-12 seconds, mold soft dough into letter you desire.  Bake at 350 for 5 minutes on Silpat lined cookie sheet.  Meanwhile, mix rest of ingredients til well combined.  Use frosting to decorate as desired.  Each Tablespoon frosting is only 25 calories, ZERO carbs, 1.4g protein and 2g fat.  Enjoy  :)
