Healthy Cherry Pie Protein Bars

Hi guys! I’m in the process of moving and the majority of my time has been spend building beds, moving boxes, and organizing our stuff. I didn’t realize how much of it we have! How my boyfriend and I managed to fit all of our stuff in a one bedroom apartment with one main closet and one coat closet is beyond me. Now, I’m in North Carolina! So, this week I thought I’d mix it up and feature another awesome fitness and healthy living blogger who knows how to make a mean energy bar!
