These Copy Cat Mixed Berry RX Bars are without a doubt going to be your new favorite snack. They’re SO darn easy to make, are packed with protein, and loaded with Vital Protein’s Amazing Mixed Berry Collagen (which I swear make my hair and nails grow like weeds!) Plus, they’re cheaper to make on your own then buy in the store!
Now, let me just clarify and say that I love RX Bars. I think they have an amazing product, and they’re pretty much the only protein bar that I’ll eat. They have super clean ingredients, taste amazing, and are a great option to have on the go. All of the flavors are amazing, but the Mixed Berry ones are without a doubt my favorite. They seriously taste like you’re eating a berry muffin!
Even though I love RX Bars, they can be a little pricey. Since they’re made with such minimal ingredients, I figured I could probably make my own version with what I had at home! All you really need are some nuts, dates, and collagen + you’re ready to go. When you buy these in bulk like I do, they are super cheap – and are perfect for making a DIY version of this health bar that everyone loves!
The best part about these bars (and why I think they’re better than the regular ones) is that they have a ton of collagen in them. Vital Protein’s Collagen has been integral in helping my hair, skin, nails and digestion. I see a noticeable difference when I use it daily versus when I don’t. My nails and hair grow basically like weeds (seriously, it’s crazy!) My skin is clearer and brighter, and my gut feels like it’s in check! While everyone’s results in taking collagen will be different, I personally love it and think these Copy Cat Mixed Berry RX Bars are the perfect way to get it into your diet!
Once you try these bars, you’re going to fall in love… I mean, I could barely wait until the photos were done to take a bite! Here’s the recipe.
