"These are tasty, nutritious and easy to make. The recipe is from a collection Tasty Fat Loss and Muscle-Gaining Recipes by Will Brink, a bodybuilder. I use vanilla whey powder and add 1/4 C cocoa and mix it all in a food processor. This saves mashing bananas and fighting with the peanut butter. They also freeze well."

"These were great! I've tried a few different homemade protein bar recipes and this one is the best so far. I even halved the recipe and didn't measure most of the ingredients exactly and they were great. Took them to the beach to eat while everyone else ate junk! Additional Note: I have now made these a few times and have successfully replaced the bananas with applesauce and added ground flax seeds. They came out good but needed something..... I think that ingredient is probably a pinch of salt. I think that will bring out the flavors more."
"5 Stars, all the diabetics at work asked for this recipe, and I'll make this for an upcoming bake sale now that our company is on a health kick. This is a very satisfying protein breakfast bar with staying power from the bananas and oatmeal, with just enough chocolate and cinnamon and a hint of honey. This beats plain oatmeal hands down and is much healthier than flavored instant oatmeal. If full-calorie and full-sugar cakes are on your "do without" list, then try this out!
