Have you had amaranth before? This grain is very similar to quinoa, just the grains are a bit smaller. Amaranth is completely gluten free, high in protein and has a low-glycemic index! Amaranth is also packed with vitamins, specifically B1, B2, B3, B6 and E along with many minerals such as manganese, magnesium, phosphorus and iron!
I’ve used optimal ingredients in these protein bar to give them a low-glycemic index yet high protein! I used my FAVORITE vanilla protein powder from Arbonne. This is a plant-based protein powder, completely gluten-free, dairy-free and vegan friendly!! It contains all essential-amino acids, making this protein bar a perfect meal-replacement!!
