The Durban Dazzlers Protein Bars



These protein bars are scrumptious, coffee, chocolate and peanut butter delicious delights.

They are some of the favourite flavours of someone I work with called Gary Durben and were designed to help with a mission in mind.

A team of cyclists are completing The Saddle Back Sore Strikes again. An epic cycle to raise funds for Gary who has been diagnosed with Motor Neurone Disease.

All funds help buy Gary equipment to help him complete tasks we take for granted.

Gary himself is riding each day for some of the route on an adapted bike. For more details look here:

This mix made 16 bars but you can halve or quarter the amounts for more individual needs.  They are also great to freeze.
