My version of a very healthy high protein, low sugar, high fiber snack/energy bar. Only good carbs and a low glycemic index. This bar is very tasty and filling! I also want to stress that this is a LOW sugar item. If you are looking for something that is very sweet, like my first reviewer, you may want to add more sugar or splenda. This is personal preference as I do not like things too sweet.

made some adjustments to this recipe. i used real homemade apple sauce, only 1 cup of milk, 1/2 cup of ground flax seed and 3 eggs. It only took 30 mins to fully bake in a 9X11 dish, and smelled wonderful!! however it really needed sugar as the applesauce and Splenda didnt provide enough. Next time I will add 1/2 cup to see if that helps. All in all a decent healthy recipe!
