    Better Bars!!!!


    I can't stop eating these things. They are very habit forming haha

    I made a batch of the chocolate raspberry bars yesterday. They are sooooo good. I did tweak the recipe though to lower the gycemic load. In place of honey I used smuckers sugar free chocolate syrup and extra splenda. I might add some sugar free raspberry preserves to the next batch.

    Anyone else tinker with different recipes? These things things are pretty versatile.

    I've made the choc rasp too, I used 2/3 the honey rec"d and they are very good. I can't imagine eating normal protein bars ever again after these. After eating most of them, (I've tried tons) I would be in the bathroom 20-30min later. These never give my stomach a problem.

    Perfect for eating at work, fast and on the go

    They make my head nearly explode with delicious goodness. I almost DON'T like them, because I know the carb content is kind of high, and they are SOOOOOOOOO good. When they get cold in the fridge, and then you cut into one, and eat it with a glass of mine, OH MY!

    I tried the butterscotch and loved them.I had ideas to add more flaxseed oil and some extra flavorless protein powder,peanut butter and **** power butter and honey.I haven't tried this combo yet as I wanted to try these with just the basic addons for my first time I have to admit I was very impressed.l'm pretty picky about protein bars so these had a high fence to climb and they made it over the fence.Now I have 2 favorite types of bars these bars and the 500 calorie bars I forget their name however as I haven't had them in awhile.

    I've got a batch of chocolate raspberry chilling in the freezer, and a bag of chocolate peanut banana sitting on the shelf. Really looking forward to that.

    I used agave nectar in the chocolate raspberry, I may try Walden Farms calorie free syrup on the next batch. We'll see how it all goes, lots of things to try, I think I'll keep experimenting and splitting batches...

    I haven't had to go that far, but I added extra PowerButter so they're a little more gooey. I like to put them in the freezer, so that consistency was best for me.

    It's great that you can adjust the recipes to fit your preferences for taste, consistency and nutrition!

    I use a rectangular glass brownie pan and put wax paper on the bottom, I think it's 7x11 or something like that. My wife would probably know better, I just grab a pan and cut it into 12 pieces (as equal as I can)

    I am always surprised how fast the bars go... I can have those 12 bars ALL gone in two days... and then I realize I just obliterated my projected carb intake BIG TIME.

    Wow, I'm the opposite. One batch has lasted me a few weeks. I use it more as a between meal snack, between lunch and dinner. I rotate between bars and other whole foods.

    Luckily a bag of 12 bars will last me 4 weeks right now. I have one each weight training day and that's 3 times a week. My cardio and rest days I have low Cal's so I don't eat them then...as hard is it is not to!!

    It's so hard to let those delicious bricks of protein sit in the fridge all cold and yummy, pieces of fruit wedged in between the honey and peanut butter laden morsels!
