Great tasting protein bar! Plan to make it on a regular basis. Submitted by:

Overall, a very tasty recipe, and much better than store-bought protein bars. I used only 1 Tbsp of water, but that was the only thing I changed in this recipe. I cut them into 24 pieces, instead of 12, since I wanted a 110 calorie treat, instead of 221. I will definitely make these again! Submitted by:

I've made these several times; they taste really good & my husband likes them too ~ success!

They can be made with a grocery store product like Boost or Carnation Breakfast Essentials, which have a different nutritional content than regular protein powder. Wonderful not to need an oven.

Made these today, they were very good and have a much better taste than packaged bars. I like that the recipe is versatile so you can make it with what you have on hand. I used vanilla whey protein powder, 1/4 c raw honey & 1 T cacao powder. I did not use water. Excellent recipe! Submitted by:

If you are looking to keep the nutritional value don't microwave the honey. It will kill all the enzymes. Submitted by:

I will never again buy store bought protein bars. These are so much better and so easy to make. Submitted by:

I'm curious....why use whey protein? Can you use any protein powder? Submitted by:

report inappropriate
I will definitely try this! Protein bars are very expensive and the list of ingredients tipically include all kind of artificial ingredients. These seem very easy to prepare too, which is a plus for a hopeless cook like me! Submitted by:

I didn't have chocolate protein powder, so I added 3 tbsps. of cocoa in all. It took more than 5 tablespoons of water to make it work, mainly I think because I didn't heat the peanut butter and agave. I made mine into balls and got about 32 out of them. Absolutely wonderful! I will make again! Submitted by:

Terrific protien bar! I highly recommend it! It doesn't taste like one of the store boughten protein bars, it is way better. I found it perfect just the way it is... Submitted by:

OMG so yummy! I only had plain whey protein powder, but I didn't want to wait to try this. So I used extra cocoa. This is going to be my favorite treat! Submitted by:

These sound gorgeous and would be great as a grab and go snack or when I need that chocolate hit,plus I really need to work on getting a little more protein into my diet.
However I'm dairy free.
Does anyone have any ideas on how I could make it dairy free without too many cals or fat please?

I used vanilla flavored protein powder because I have a lot of it at home. I added more cocoa to the mix and added chopped walnuts to this also, since it is the favorite way my family likes their bars. Submitted by:

I loved this receipe, Great taste. I did leave the cocoa out and simply used chocolate whey protein powder. Very filling and yummmy Submitted by:

I would LOVE to make these, but need a dairy-free substitute for the chocolate whey powder, since my daughter is anaphylactic to milk (not lactose intolerant -- we're talking about a life-threatening allergy to all milk proteins, including whey, casein, etc). Any thoughts most welcome Submitted by:

Has anybody used this with soy protein powder? If so, how did they turn out? I don't use whey because the cholesterol amount in it seems extremely high and was told by a friend who went to med. school that whey can cause bulking up much more than soy. Submitted by:

I have not even made these yet, but I can tell it is a great base for homemade protein bars which saves a lot of money and cuts out the preservatives which I think are responsible for at least half of our cancers. Im a survivor. Submitted by:

I made these last night and I love them! I subbed almond butter for peanut butter and used 6T of water instead of 5. I made them with optimum nutrition double rich chocolate protein powder, and I did not need the cocoa powder! They are so good, and I will surely make them again! Texture: Nouget-ey Submitted by:

Super-easy and tasty. I did not add the cocoa powder. I found they were chocolatey enough with chocolate protein powder. Submitted by:

This sounds so good and easy to do...But does any one have another recipe for a high protein high fiber bars? As I am highly allergic to most Nuts ... I can still have pistachio nuts ... but I have never seen a butter form of it in the stores.

Sorry, but these were gross and chalky. I was skeptical, knowing how chalky the protein powder could taste. But after reading good reviews, gave it a try and wanted it to taste good and be healthy. Sorry, this was not good and nothing like the picture at all either. Very disappointed. Submitted by:

I made these according to the recipe, except for adding an extra tbs. of water. They were delicious! Better than any protein bar you would buy! Will definitely be making these again! Submitted by:

I made them exactly to the recipe this first time, but i may add coconut next time! So quick and super easy. These are wonderful and I like knowing what is in my protein bar! Submitted by:

Tried these with the optional cocoa and a bit of vanilla extract. How can something not baked be so good? Or have so many calories?! The individual servings are small, but delightfully chewy and filling enough I don't feel compelled to finish them all at once. Good for my sweet dessert bias. Submitted by:

As a peanut butter and a chocolate lover, I absolutely love this recipe. I used two tablespoons of skippy natural no stir peanut butter(it has 190 calories) I also had to used 7 tablespoons of water because of my protein power. I will definitely be making this again. Submitted by:

These taste great! I used half peanut butter and half almond butter to reduce the peanut butter flavor and increase the fiber a bit. I substituted 1.25 c vanilla whey powder, and .25 c cocoa powder, and increased the honey to 4 Tbsp. They hold together nicely. Submitted by:

Used Champion Nutrition Pure Whey Protein Stack, Chocolate to make these & they were excellent! I used agave instead of honey and used the optional cocoa powder. I used 2 T water which appeared to be enough until I cut the bars & then I realized some of them were crumbly. Will add more next time. Submitted by:

These are very good. I think I added more water than called for just to get the final 'dough' a bit more workable. There is none of that 'yucky' protein powder taste. I did use the cocoa and even sprinkled a little coffee in. Submitted by:

These look really good, I will definitely give them a try, although based on the ingredients shown and the type of Protein used, I figure these to be closer to 13G protein which is good but closer to an energy bar number than a protein bar. Submitted by:

I made mine with vanilla Designer whey, cut the amount of the protein powder to 1 cup instead of 1 1/2, and skipped the cocoa. So good! Definitely going to be a regular addition to the lineup. Just what I needed today! Submitted by:
