I have been trying to figure out a way to curb my sweet craving and stick with my healthy eating life style. After many attempts I think I have finally found something so delicious, I had to share the recipe with everyone!

I love the marriage of cranberries and orange and that is where the idea for these tasty treats came to life. They are high in protein and fiber to help keep you full in between meals completely guilt free! I hope everyone enjoys them!

      Alright khmazz, you read my backpacking story and decided to surprise me with something to replace my clif bars! I appreciate it greatly! No seriously, these are awesome looking. I'm going to have to make some now just because I'm all for trying alternative forms of protein consumption especially in my workout regimen. I'm very glad you went easy on the sugar!

      Well done and it looks great, voting up, sharing!
