I am experimenting with these, and my last batch turned out great!

1 cup protein powder (soy,rice,pea,hemp mix)
1 cup natural peanut butter
1 cup organic rolled spelt
7 tbsp agave nectar
vanilla almond milk as needed


Mix protein powder and spelt in a large bowl. In a smaller bowl put peanut butter and heat in microwave (if it's cold. If not just use as is) for about 1-1 1/2 minutes. Mix agave nectar with peanut butter and pour into larger bowl. Mix throughly. Add a splash or two of almond milk and mix again. Keep doing this until desired (or creamy) texture is reached.


This has served me well so far. I laughed when I realized I pretty much replaced everything in the original recipe with something else, haha.

does this work out with sweetener instead of the nectar and without the rolled spelt, what do you think?

What do you mean sweetener instead of nectar? Like sugar or another dry sweetener?

And I'm sure they'd be fine without the rolled spelt. Just add more protein powder if it gets too gooey.

About 237 ml. http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&rlz= ... %3F+liters

We Americans are pretty stupid about these measurements, honestly.

Hey Phil, I think you might need something else to bind the whole thing if you don't add syrup, I might be wrong but I think so...Do you know if the sweetner in a regular soy powder is enough? It should be, right?

The recipe on this page is basically the same as the one I used but it has some good suggestions for adding more flavour to the bars.

I made some more today, following the same recipe, but added some nutmeg, cinnamon and grated apple.

1 cup rice protein and peanut butter

Image

1 cup oats, blended

Image

3 small apples, grated with a very fine grater

Image

Mix all that together and it should look like this

Image

Put it in a tray

Image

Spread it out and push some raisins or sultanas into it if you like

Image

Stick it in the freezer for a while, cut the bars and you're done.

I'll try to work out the nutrition info soon.
