I made these the other day, pretty damn simple:

120g whey (used MP choc caramel)
50g ground almonds
40g 85% green and blacks chocolate crushed up
40g cranberry/strawberry/sultana pieces

Add up in a bowl with vitafibre (the recipe said 140g but was nowhere near enough I found - think I used about 250g).

Stick in fridge or heat up, depending on what you prefer.

This made 6 bars (well mine more resembled cookies haha). They tasted better than any home made protein bar I've ever made, however still not as good as the real thing.

For the ingredients I probably didn't even save much money, if any. Therefore probably won't make them again once my tub of vitafibre runs out.

Hmmm, those macro's are not ideal, at least not for moi.
 
When i receive my Vitafibre  i will make some with the following:
 
Whey Protein
Peanut or Almond butter
Cacao nibs
Vitafibre
 
As the Vitafibre is already very sweet, there is no need to add further sweetners and calories, haven't decided on the quantity of each of the above but i wont be using as much of the Vitafibre as the above list does.

Yeah I didn't play about with the macros enough tbh, would have liked to drop carbs and up protein.
 
I literally had to use that amount of vitafibre as it was so powdery. I don't think you'll have as much of a problem since you're using nut butter instead of powder (wish I'd done that...), but I think you'll be surprised at how much vitafibre you need to actually make it into an edible bar.

You should have the Vitavibre that comes in a liquid (syrup) form and not the powdered version. This will reduce the amount you need to use as the syrup helps bind everything together, hence why i will use nut butters which will also help bind things together.
 
Did you get your Vitafibre from the UK or import it from Canada?

I did use the syrup version. Think you may be underestimating how much you'll need, but let me know how it goes. As you say, using nut butter will make a decent difference compared to ground almonds like I used.
 
I think I got it from BBW or Musclefood or something ages ago when they had it for £7.99.

it's also worth noting that my bars were roughly 85g each.
 
If I had made them 60g like a quest bar, the macros would have changed to:
 
193 cals
32 carbs (24 fibre)
7g fat
11g protein
 
So not actually too bad - would have just liked to up the protein a bit and cut carbs down. You may have better joy doing this as you'll be able to add more protein powder with the use of nut butter
