Homemade quest bars

Heard everyone raving about these things and how easy they are to make, you just need one ingredient called 'vitafibre' . They say there is no substitute and it's only available in the us, and the shipping is horrendous, surely someone out there knows of how to make similar bars. Getting bored of the mundain, protein powder, oats and peanut butter ones

If i want to import some from the Canadian company that makes this stuff, the courier cost (DHL) is $150 each time, that is for 10 kgs.
 
If the courier cost was a it more reasonable i would be happy to import the stuff as it looks like a decent product, and we could all make our own low carb high protein bars and make them with any ingredient that we wanted to add in.

see thats the thing i refuse to believe that there isnt an adequate substitute available in the uk.
i know vitafibre is just a brand name but surely there is a british product near enough the same that would work

I love quest bars, but given some of the research in to the effects of imo on insulin and blood sugar I'm not sure I'd really consider them 'low carb'

cheers noob, they sound ok in theory but they are still based on peanut butter, oats and protein and each bar contains a hell of alot more carbs and fat than that
 
and you cant tell me that the consistancy doesnt change if you add agave nectar as a sweetner or stevia (powder)
has anyone actually made these?

Only thing I can think of would be psyllium husk but not tried it. I've been trying to make my own quest-like bars, had mixed success tbh!

the consistency comes from the fiber powder... i tried these with flax and it was ok, but not quite the same as quest... 
 
going to try with psyllium husks next.

Interesting thread:
I would guess the Psyllium powder would be a good substitute, but you will need a sweetner in there as Pysllium has next to no taste.

TPW have a new Maple Syrup (no sogar, calories or fat etc) type of product just been introduced yesterday, and new flavours on their way.
 
£4.99 for 400 ml is not bad and you get an introductary 10% off as well for a limited period.

This stuff looks a good ingredient to add to the bars. The reviews sound very good.
