I thought this recipe sounds like one I would like to try that would build muscle. I found it from Ellen's Kitchen put out by Eric Conrad.

Made for PAC, Spring 2007 ~ It's my impression that these little goodies are meant to give a person a great energy boost & are a great treat when doing [or after doing] heavy exercise! Whatever else they are, they are definitely a great tasting snack bar & much better for the body than many of the store-bought bars out there! I'm definitely impressed with them & will keep this recipe on hand!
