Thanks to JP from the VF forums for the recipe.

These are pretty high in fat & calories, but they're great for all the bulkers out there.

1 cup protein powder (I used soy)
1 cup natural peanut butter
1 cup oats
8 tbsp syrup

- Melt the PB and syrup in the microwave for a minute or so.
- Mix this with the oats and protein powder.
- I also added a few splashes of soy milk and some raisins. Just judge it for yourself. You don't want it to be too dry. You could use water too.
- Spread the mixture into a tray and put it in the fridge until it's firm, cut into bars and freeze some if they're not going to be consumed within a few days.

* I will probably melt some dark chocolate and drizzle it over the top too, but this is optional.

I've made these once or twice, they're good. If you don't care about getting fat you can dip the bars in melted chocolate and you got a snickers! Or you can add chocolate chips.

Any way to cut down on the PB?

You could probably thicken it with some flax meal, whole wheat flour, arrowroot flour, that kind of stuff. Soft tofu maybe...

Maybe you could use the PB2 someone posted about. It's like really low fat dehydrated peanut butter with the oil taken out. And they have it in chocolate too.

Oh you can also add regular cocoa powder to theese. It's nice if you like the bitter taste of cocoa, which I really really do.
I'm really happy you posted these and reminded me of their existance. I think I'm going to make some tomorrow if I have the time. Pretty good for bulking I would guess.

Looks tasty. What is the syrup you used? Something like flavorless corn syrup or flavorful maple syrup?

I used golden syrup but maple syrup would work.

Be careful about PB.
Was anyone aware of the salmonella scare ?

Unless people here are buying their PB in large bulk or getting it from institutions, it's not a worry. Your standard, store-shelf PB is OK.

I made those bars today using dark chocolate flavoured Hemp protein sweetened with stevia, soy chocolate milk, as well as some raisins, raw chocolate and walnuts.
I was afraid that the hemp powder would give a granular texture to the whole thing but not at all ! Delicious :) So I'm eating those bars tonight while watching this excellent and hilarious French movie "Delicatessen".
