HI BF,

The bars sound good but have you ever tried to make them with a higher % of protein? One of my major gripes for protein bars in general is the fact that most have a P:C ratio far worse than milk and this bugs me.

An ideal bar IMO would be 30P 20C 15F = 335kcals
Most of the bars on the market have a load of glycerine in them which bumps up the carb content even more.

So if anyone has experimented with more protein let me know if it was god awful or not too bad.

BTW - How are the bars in relation to the dry stuff you buy in the shops?

Re: Protein bar recipes

I'm diabetic so anything containing too much sugar (peanut butter and honey) is a big no-no!! Is it possible to make the bars without these ingredients and still be left with something that is edible?

Cheers



Hi Gary,

I think without the honey and P. Butter you will find the bars are unlikely to hold/bind together. You could try binding different ingredients together along with the whey protein with an egg or eggs like they do in cordon bleu cooking but it's best to ask a good cook which I am sadly not for their opinions on what would work.

Finally made a small batch this afternoon. IT was absolutely lovely and delicious. Even my gf enjoyed and she absolutely hates all forms of protein bars. Personally would add a small amount of crushed nuts.

Highly recommended. Would make the other protein recipe soon.

This is my second attempt at these bars, and it turned out quite well. My first test-bar wen't way too sweet. However, now I've nailed it. Mine is a bit more heavy in the total cal department, which is what I like.

Check it out: 1 Scoop Protein powder, 40g ecological peanutbutter, 30g honey, 30g oats, 0.1 L skim milk - totals: 42 g protein, 56 g carbs, 25 g fat. 622 calories.

Yeah, that's pretty kick-ass. Just realised that I use 0.1 l skim milk per every three bars. It helps the stuff stay together. Regardsless, each bar still weighs in at 40+ grams of protein.

Bigfella,
Made some up last night and added handful of sultanas.
Fantastic taste only equalled in the knowledge that they didn't cost £1 each to make!
Thanks for the recipe
Breeze

Is there anything that can replace the peanut butter? I've got a serious nut allegy and I don't fancy filling myself with adrenalin everytime I have a bite.

Hi Jimbo - welcome to the site.
Nut allergy - oh dear - yes avoid the peanut butter!

without it theyll be lower in protein, but may be worth trying. may need more honey to make them work
Have an experiment and let us know the result!

dunno really - good q! Honey is 'natural' as for peanut butter - peanuts are natural but the butter is made in a factory!!

Bigman,

I tried this recipe and i found that on leaving the mixure to cool it didnt really solidify. How solid do they become? I didnt use any peanut butter (didnt have any) just used oil instead, could this be the problem?
Has anyone tried any different flavours to chocolate?

phylio, I would guess the lack of PB would be your problem, mine solidify to about the same as a bar bought from a supp manufacturer.
