    We know what you're thinking...These fudgy, rich bars look way too delicious to be remotely considered healthy, but as with many things in life, looks can be deceiving. Our Keto-friendly peanut butter bars inspired by our friends at No Excuses Nutrition are made with Premium Grass-Fed Collagen Peptides, which is an all-natural, protein-packed, unflavored, and flavorless powder that is easy to add into your favorite baking recipes. You won't even know it's there.

    Why add collagen peptides?

    Hydrolyzed Collagen Peptides

     

    Fair question. After all, peanut butter is one of the main ingredients in this energy-boosting recipe and that means your sweet snack will already have plenty of protein. Maybe so, but protein isn't the only thing that a collagen supplement offers. Far from it.

    Did you know that collagen is the most abundant protein in the body?! That's right. Collagen is the building material to renew cells in all areas of the body including hair, skin, nails, eyes, teeth, cartilage, bones, tendons, internal organs, arteries, blood vessels, and the immune system. Collagen accounts for 80% of all connective tissue and 75% of the skin. So apart from reaping the benefits from the extra protein, you'll also be supporting the rejuvenation of your skin, boosting recovery from physical activity, and even helping to build lean muscle and flexibility. This is precisely why collagen is widely considered a superfood or super supplement in the wellness industry.
