High Protein Squares

This snack makes a great replacement for processed “power” bars and they can be made ahead and kept in an airtight container for up to a week. If you can’t find carob chips go ahead and substitute chocolate chips—the change in fat and calories is marginal. Organic chocolate chips are available in many supermarkets, so check those aisles first.
