Needs some help finalizing my NO BAKE low carb protein bars. Taste is amazing.

Used:
2 Tbls Natty Almond Butter
3 TBLS Sugar Free Almond Milk
1 Scoop of PES Select blend Choc-Peanutbutter
1 Tbls Swerve (erythritol/my fav tasting SF sweetener)

1) In a bowl, I first mixed the protein powder and almond milk into a paste.
2) I then nuked the almond butter for 30 seconds just to make it easy to mix. It does help.
3) Then added these remaining ingredients and formed it into a bar shape.

It's so dang good "as is". Lol. Resist the temptation and make it into a bar.

I refrigerated for 6 hours and boom - a yummy bar that blows quest bar taste out of the water IMO. No fake, synthetic protein bar taste.

The problem is that I need help tweaking this into a "better formed" bar. Mine is gooey (although refrigeration helps immensely).

Help?

Have you tried adding more whey or using almond flour.
I use almost the same recipe on a larger scale except I add oats.

I checked out the ingredients on Quest Bars and all my problems were solved. Lol.

They use this stuff

Vitafiber Basic Syrup 2.64 Lbs (28.4 Fl Oz) https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00TIX50OQ/ref=cm_sw_r_sms_awd_lOrUwb10QPHVX

Amazing gooey, syrupy, low/no carb, high fiber ingredient that allows u to make protein bars w EASE. That $19 is for 2.6 pounds. So quite a bit considering u only use a few TBLS per bar.

Get that stuff. Trust me. It is a total game changer.

Then, google ""homemade protein bars using vitafiber""

You will get a bazillion hits. AND all of the recipes are a cinche--most of the time containing 3-4 ingredients and no work (just stir!)

I'm loving all the different creations I have come up w so far. That vitafiber makes things idiot proof.

Just make sure u use a protein powder u like the taste of!! It matters.
