Protein Bars Vegan (IWILLTRANSFORM)

Submitted by: LOVE_2_RUN

Introduction

I originally posted this recipe as a vegan energy bar and my SparkFriend Molly (IWILLTRANSFORM) remade it to increase the amount of protein in the bars. She also made it without added sweetner (agave) and used dates instead. Her posted version calls for 1/2 C of chocolate chips, I used currants instead. Feel free to use the chocolate chips but they will alter the nutrition info.
