These lovelies are just that - totally sweet with a little piece of fall! (Yeah... I know it isn't fall, but that crisp air, the smell of campfires, leaves scattered on the ground, the smell of caramel apples - which I can't eat, but I like the smell. Well, it takes me back! Let's just go with it!) Adapted from Jamie Eason's Low-Carb Apple Cinnamon Protein Bar recipe, these are totally scrumptious and won't mess with your diet at all! Take a look at the recipe and the macros - they are divine!

He & She Tips: Does it matter if I use a glass pan? Can I use a non-stick pan? YES! It does matter! For some reason, you get a much more cake-like consistency if you use a glass pan - trust us! Store these in the refrigerator or freezer since they do not have preservatives and will spoil if left out.
