Trail Mix BarSubmitted by: PINKY_120
IntroductionThis is so delicious and full of protein. I love to eat it before or after working out. I normally wrap these bars in a cling wrap if I want to take it with me. It totally beats any trail mix bar you've ever had! This is so delicious and full of protein. I love to eat it before or after working out.
