Tasty protein bar recipes - Please!

lynnlato | Nov 4, 2011 08:58 AM

I need more protein in my life and want to make a flavorful protein bar that I can eat on the go, after the gym, etc. I need something that doesn't have too many carbs, no dried fruit, and all-natural ingredients. I've searched and searched online recipe databases and nothing seems to appeal to me. I want a chewy bar with texture and I'd like for it to have an egg or two in it and I really want it to be a baked bar - not those goopy power bar thangs.

Some ingredients that I like:

-Rolled oats or oat bran

-Almond butter or natural peanut butter

-chopped nuts like pecans, almonds, pistachios or walnuts

-low sugar chocolate chips

-vanilla protein powder

-sesame seeds, flax seeds

-cinnamon, garam masala, cardamom

-eggs

-banana
-honey

I've already done a CH search and didn't really find anything that I liked. I've tried creating my own recipe, but don't really love the end result of my most recent batch. I'm not sure how to create my own because I don't really know what ingredient ratios are needed to have it bake up well. Does that make sense?
