anne in apex's Note:
I found this recipe when DH requested a high-protein breakfast bar. He wanted something he could grab and take with him, that was high protein so it would stick with him for the morning. I found the original recipe on lowcarbluxury.com, but since we're not counting carbs, I use regular peanut butter and regular sugar and omit the liquid sweetener. The protein powder we have is a bit bland, so I added vanilla, and I added chocolate upon request from DH. Cooking time is refrigerator time.
