      I added extra honey per another commenter and the taste is WAY better than store bought protein bars. WAY better! And SO easy! I made these for my boyfriend to save some money since protein bars are ridiculously expensive. He said they were as good as the protein bars he buys. I only made half a batch and used a bread pan to spread them in so they'd be thick enough. My only comment otherwise is for those looking for a 20+ gram serving of protein: Per the protein powder mix nutrient info, to consume a sufficient amount of protein,we will cut the bars into eight servings since each bar contains about half a scoop of protein powder and my body building boyfriend thinks a serving should be at least 20 grams.

      Love, love, love these! What a great recipe. The perfect mid-afternoon snack with a glass of water. I added sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, raisins and cinnamon. It's a recipe you can adjust however you like. Thank you for a wonderful recipe...I will make this all of the time!

      This is a great recipe, both for taste and ease of making. I have just finished making my third batch, and have tinkered with the recipe each time...it lends itself well to variations. I love the combination of chocolate with nuts, so I have added 1/4 cup of sifted cocoa powder to the vanilla whey, and added 4 packets of Equal to sweeten the cocoa. I also toasted the oatmeal for about 8 minutes at 350F to enhance the flavour prior to adding it to the liquids. This mix required about another 1/3 cup of milk, probably because of the cocoa. Because my daughter has a peanut allergy, I used crunchy almond butter, and added a capful of almond extract to the milk. My family like this version of the power bars best, but there is great scope to make different flavours every time, using this recipe as a base. My advice is to refrigerate the bars if they won't be eaten in a short time...my first batch went mouldy.
