The texture of these bars is similar to cornbread and they definitely require a sweetener otherwise may be too bland for most tastes.
These are really good. I used peach protein powder since that's what I had in the cupboard, replaced about half of the water with agave syrup (I wanted it a little sweeter) and used one whole egg instead of 2 whites. These bars aren't as dry and sawdusty as other recipes I've tried that call for protein powder. The best part is one bar is enough to get you through the entire morning. I'll be eating these for breakfast from now on!
