Chocolate chip

PRELUDE

These bars are designed to fill a slot during the post-workout period. Using a 2:1 ratio of carbs to protein, they are perfect for rushing protein to hungry muscles after a taxing workout. Two types of high-GI carbs are used (dextrose and maltodextrin) to maximize insulin response, magnifying the anabolic effect. If you had to choose just one of these carbohydrate powders, dextrose would be a better choice because it tastes sweeter than maltodextrin.

But don't let all of this technical discussion make you think that we have neglected taste for nutrition. It took a lot of trial and error to develop a recipe that people would actually eat. In fact, these bars taste great!
