Nutrition & Calorie Comments  

I see some people posting about the high fat/carbohydrate content of this Protein Bar. You have to understand that there are good fats and bad fats, as well as good carbs and bad carbs. They are not all created equal. The bars will only be as good as the quality of the protein powder you buy. Submitted by:

I want to try these - I love the convenience of the other store brands but I hate the soy derived proteins... this way, I can control for that - and maybe even try other healthful add-ins that my son might not notice (like flax seed??). Submitted by:

I just can't allow myself to eat so little volumne with so many calories and fat. I need and want to eat a larger volume of food to get those kind of calories... I would go for a turkey wrap with 45 calories where I can eat several of them. Submitted by:

It could be that there is more protein powder in my scoops than in the original poster's... but my batch turned out very dry and very protein powdery tasting. For the amount of calories I consumed, I want to at least 'like' it. Sorry for the bad rating, just my experience. I threw the rest away. Submitted by:

My husband and I both love this! I used hemp protein powder for more fiber and then added cocoa powder for the chocolate. You will need to add some agave syrup or honey to make it sweet enough(because of the cocoa powder) Adding lots of dried fruit helps too...I used chopped dates,dried blueberries Submitted by:

I think it's an excellent protein bar. I mixed everything together in my food processor which worked well, but needed to add a little more water. They are very sticky so will try the wax paper on the bottom of the pan next time. Submitted by:

For those looking for protein powder, the one recommended to me from several sources and what I received in today is http://www.bodybuilding.com/store/opt/natw
hey.html. Supposed to have a good Consumer Reports rating. This recipe looks easy and delicious. I will definitely be trying it.

looks like just what I was looking for to avoid the high cost of protein bars in the store, can adjust by adding fruit to keep it different Submitted by:

When you talk about protein powder, what does that mean? the kind used by body builders? Why so little fiber? Should be a way to bulk up fiber? Submitted by:

Yum! I haven't made them yet, but they sound delicious! I'm thinking you could make them with BSN's lean Dessert Protein Shake (can get at GNC). It only has 3.5 g of fat, 8 carbs and 21 g of protein. I have the chocolate fudge pudding one & I love it. I'll try to post again if they turn out! Submitted by:

I was thinking of buying some protein powder. Now I have a reason.
The article on flax said not to cook it.

Sounds good, but, for me - high calories and high fat. I really try to watch this in everything I eat. That's about half a meal for me. No thanks. The only thing I might use this for is to take as a snack on a long motorcycle ride. Submitted by:
