The taste was awesome... but I did find it a bit dry. Next time I am planning on mixing all of the ingredients and adding the wheat gluten last - 1/2 cup at a time. This way, I can achieve a slightly "juicer" texture. It was just too dry the way this recipe describes it. I do think that the taste was great and it makes a whole lot so if you need to stock up on a protein in your freezer - this is the recipe. It's a keeper but needs some adjustment. More proof that homemade is always better than the stuff you buy in the grocery store...
