This recipe is excellent! I was surprised at how perfect the protein bars turned out. I actually used chocolate flavored whey protein (only 1/2 svg) and mixed 1/2 organic apple cinnamon oatmeal and 1/2 regular quaker oats. Very tasty and nutritional!
Agree with most, need to add either more water or some honey to make it all stick togethr better. Next time, I'm going to reduce the oats used to make the flour to 3/4 cup, and leave the rest whole for more texture. We also used hazelnuts. - 4/29/14
