"I have been looking for a protein bar that is not full of carbs. The following is a my own interpretation of a recipe I found online. You could experiment with other ingredients (i.e., other types of protein powder, coco powder, nuts and seeds, etc...). If you come up with other variations, let me know! :)"

"My first thought when I licked my fingers after mixing and pressing these bars was "hm - I don't know...". But what a surprise when I got them out of the fridge and tried the first bar! They're amazing. I made one batch with sesame seeds, carob, whey protein and stevia for DH, and although he usually doesn't like stevia he liked the licorice flavor they lent to the bars ("Oh, great - low carb licorice!!"). As I'm allergic to stevia and carob, I made my batch with raw cocoa powder and rice syrup, used a little less water and replaced the sesame seeds by hemp seeds because I hadn't any sesame seeds left. Also I used brown rice protein for me, and first I thought the strong flavor of the rice protein would make the bars inedible. But resting time in the fridge made the flavors blend together so the special flavor of the protein vanished, and the result is the best I had so far with this kind of protein bar! They're soft but not sticky like some bars that glue your teeth and kind of glop down your throat. I'll sure make this again and try mixing in some coffee or pumpkin pie spice :D Thanks for posting! Made for Healthy Choices ABC."
"These are absolutely wonderful. I replaced the sesame seeds with hulled hemp seeds. I also used Jay Robb Chocolate Whey Powder so I did not need to add the cocoa powder. I also added 1 tsp of butterscotch flavoring. I only needed 1/4 cup water. This is a yummy, easy protein bar. Thank you for posting such a great low carb protein bar. My kids loved it too and gave me a "Two Thumbs Up" for them. I love it."
"I am super pleased with these bars and so is my husband! I, also, made a batch with chia seeds, which turned out very good. Used a raw protein powder from garden of life. Hoping to try some different variations just for variety. Not sure what yet, but I'll experiment a bit....the other reviewer mentioned pumpkin pie spice....probably will give that a shot."
