Protein bar binders - HELP!!

ronnie420 | Sep 15, 2011 05:09 AM

I have been experimenting with making my own protein bars. I am using a mix of dried fruits and nuts, and adding whey isolate protein powder, flax seed, and cinnamon. I have been using a little honey as a binding agent. I mix all the ingredients in a processor, smush into a pan, and freeze them to let it set. They are great, but they dont last long out of a refrigerated environment. They tend to get soft, and come apart. Is there something I can add to keep them solid for a longer period of time? I want them to be all natural. so artificial preservatives are not gonna work
Please help!!
