Nutrition & Calorie Comments  

These are really good. Made them as a snowy-day activity with my 8 year old, and now I have bonus snacks to take to work this week. :) As we were making them, I thought, these better be good, considering how easy it is to just buy pre-made protein bars. Luckily, they are. Good. Submitted by:

It's not hard to lower the fat in your own PB. Simply pour off some of the oil and use the thick remainder. It may be harder to mix, though. You also will not be 100% sure of the calorie and fat content for tracking purposes. Nevertheless, this is one way to use your own favorite "natural" brand. Submitted by:

I rely heavily on protein bars for 'emergencies' and on my commute after work. I have two favourite recipes now, and a third I've been going to for variety. I'll try these. thank you. Submitted by:

Any bar with that many calories should have at least 15-20 grams of protein in it to call itself a protein bar. Submitted by:

Folks, don't down-rate a recipe because you *think* one of the ingredients is unhealthy without confirming. The suggested brand of peanut butter is just pb with defatted peanuts. Nothing strange or artificial. Not something I would buy, but less weird than whey powder or commercial protein bars. Submitted by:

Since I use dates instead of nuts, I melt the chocolate in a separate bowl & drizzle over the bars. Great for post-workout snacks & fast breakfasts - but keep in mind they aren't as sugary as store bought bars. Just as good with plain protein powder. Cheap to put together with bulk ingredients too.

Made these as is and they are delicious! Also easy to vary according to each person's tastes or nutritional goals. I only did a single batch to try them, but will make again in bigger batches and maybe some varieties to freeze and have handy for snacks. Easy and versatile! Submitted by:

I actually think it is very well balanced nutritionally! Especially if you are planning to use it during prolonged exercise such as hiking or bike riding. The carbs are not excessive for that kind of snack/energy bar; more fiber and protein than almost all commercially available bars. Submitted by:

I've been instructed not to use protein powder, but rather get it through real foods. Is this effective without the powder if I increase the peanut butter? Submitted by:

Healthy dessert, not a meal or protein replacement. I don't add chocolate, but do add a dab of honey or agave. Use organic ingredients. I haven't used it with whey yet, but often add yogurt or fruit for the liquid. As I said, it is my healthy dessert. Submitted by:

Please look at the ingredients in the peanut butter you use. Many of them have corn starch and icing sugar. I would think that the recipe should be promoting a natural peanut butter. Submitted by:

With almost twice as many grams of carbs than protein, this is really not a protein bar. Submitted by:

Is there an easy substitute for the nonfat dry milk? I'd love to try this but that's the only ingredient I don't have. Submitted by:
