    I can't wait to try these... My favorite suggestion... Use vanilla protein powder and add a dash of cinnamon, allspice and cloves (family secret). A few raisins if you choose. Just like an oatmeal cookie. - 10/24/11

    I used vanilla protein mix since I'm not a fan of chocolate. Turned out really good but seemed like it was missing something. I'll add a few chopped nuts next time I make these. - 8/16/11

    I've been on the search for a low fat, low sugar, high protein "dessert" when I found this one. It is great as a snack with a glass of milk or a quick meal with a protein shake. Maybe next time I'll add some dried fruit or mini chocolate chips. The possibilities are endless! Thanks! - 11/1/10

    I was looking for a low-fat version of a protein bar & this was it! It was really good, even my 9 yr. old son liked it. I used Herbal Life cookies and cream Healthy meal shake mix instead of the chocolate protein powder, skippy red-fat pb and added 2 TBSP mini chocolate chips. - 6/13/10

  • Made these with a few additions: handful of kashi go lean crisp (toasted berry crumble) and slivered almonds. Used Elite chocolate protein powder hubby uses and these turned out FANTASTIC !!
    Will definitely make again- thx for the recipe - 1/30/12

  • i thought they were great they way they were. Keeping the ingrediants low helps with low carbs,calories and sugars. As a competitive body builder thats important. Very good - 8/17/11

  • Hmmm...mine turned out kind-of bland. Perhaps it was the protein powder that I used - Whey & Oats Chocolate. I could see that they would be really good with chocolate chips added to them. I will keep playing with the recipe. Thanks! - 5/15/11
