      I really love these. I have a frisbee tournament coming up this weekend - and we often don't really get a lunch break, so I thought these would be a good, energy-dense choice. (I may have already eaten like 1/5 of them...what?!) Mine look more whole-grain/nubbly than mikey&ev's pic. I NEVER managed to get them up to 205 - even after like 45 minutes. I gave up when it got to about 185. They are a little chewy now - I guess that's the price I pay. Again, they are delicious, they taste like 'healthfood' I guess, but I like that. Good luck guys. They are a little expensive - but with their nutritional profile and how much you would pay for preservative-tastic off-the-shelf versions...they're worth it! Thanks Chef and Alton ::EDIT:: I used whey protein powder with little to no flavoring (it said 'natural' but smelled a bit like vanilla). I also cut these into tiny squares and got about 50 - they look like 'nuggets of energy' if you've seen those.

      You have to make these, they are delicious. Like he says in the episode, you won't find any power bars on the market that taste this good! I didn't have dried blueberries, so i used dried cranberries. Also, I used whey protein powder instead of soy because it is what I had on hand. Very delicious and they do freeze well. Almost tastes like a PBJ in bar form, the texture isn't too cakey but not very dense either. Quite a nice balance and definitely worth making. Very easy too, just mix everything together. Thanks for posting, otherwise I was going to!

      Yep-They ARE Good Eats! I will never buy another tasteless protein bar from the store again. These taste wonderful, and have a nice texture. I am sure they are better for you also. Thumbs up Alton!! These are a winner!!

      We used to love Good Eats when we had cable! I miss him. I had this saved and finally tried it. I used the cup measurements and had to add a bit more juice to get it all combined. I used dried pineapple, cranberries, choc. chips and walnuts in place of the other 4 dried fruits. I would have liked it a bit more sweet, but my DH really liked them. He ate 3 (out of 24) right away.

      Better than any protein bar I've tasted that didn't have chocolate. And yeah, it's like PB&J. Good stuff though. Just love it!
