I agree with the lady that did the half recipe. that would have been the best idea. I almost burnt my blender up trying to get the whole recipe done in an older blender. a half recipe would have done nicely. very good tasting. I only had the vanilla protein powder. I will make it again, and with a lot less mess. I love the zone bars I have been buying, but see that they have wheat in them. I wonder how these bars would be dipped in chocolate!
I gave this recipe 4 stars. I made this recipe for 2009 Spring PAC. Yummy! These kinda taste like peanut butter chocolate fudge. What a great way to get your protein. I did cut my bars into a rough size of the smaller protein bars you buy. I made a few minor changes to the recipe. I cut the recipe in half. I used smooth no sugar added peanut butter. I also used imitation honey. Otherwise I followed the recipe as directed. Overall I will make these again they are so really good tasting. I did have a big of trouble mixing them. I started mixing them with my hand mixer and finished by hand. Next time I make them I'll use my Kitchen Aid mixer and let that do all the work. Thanks for posting a yummy protein bar recipe!

I made this recipe and it was really quick and easy to make and the bars turned out quite good - they are quite sweet but go down nicely after training. They do make a large amount and so far they've kept well in the fridge. Thanks!
