I really liked these, and will continue to make them using a variety of dried fruit and nuts. I did make adjustments, based on the previous reviews and personal preference. I used 2/3 cup of vanilla whey protein powder and reduced the milk powder to 1 cup. Instead of pure maple syrup, I used ED Smith sugar free (sweetened with Splenda) maple type syrup, apple cider instead or orange juice, and craisins for the dried fruit. I added walnut pieces and generously sprinkled toasted sesame seeds on the bottom of the pan and on top of the bars before baking. Mine took 20-25 minutes to cook. Mine too were like thick chewy brownies, but next time I may use a larger pan so that the bars are not quite as thick, and then they will probably take less time to bake.

Made for PAC, Spring 2007 ~ This recipe makes GREAT bars! As with the previous reviewer, I added sesame seeds & the bars were outstanding! You have to pace yourself so you don't eat them all up right away, like you would do with snack food! Great one-a-day bars or for serious between meal snacking! Thanks for the recipe!

This is really an outstanding recipe. The bars are highly addictive, having a texture like chewey brownies. I saw this same recipe on a bodybuilding site but noted 2 differences: They called for a cup of lite syrup to control carbs I suspect, and for "2 scoops" of whey protien powder. My scoop is 70cc., about 1/3 cup, so I put 2/3 cup of whey protien and liked the result. I added a similar amount of walnut pieces and generously sprinkled toasted sesame seeds on the bottom of the pan and on top of the bars before baking. I baked mine a little longer, about 18-20 minutes. Yum!!
