Has anyone tried any of these? I'm curious how they turn out....
I found a decent sounding recipe and converted it to vegan for my family. My version is pretty clean except for the chocolate chips. They came out a little cakey, but when I tried with less oat flour and more coconut, they were too crumbly:
I Started with this recipe:
http://www.canadianliving.com/food/grano
la_bars.php
3 cups (750 mL) quick cooking rolled oats (not instant)
1 can (300 mL) sweetened condensed milk
1 cup (250 mL) semisweet chocolate chips
1 cup (250 mL) wheat germ
3/4 cup (175 mL) natural bran
1/2 cup (125 mL) oat bran
1/2 cup (125 mL) margarine, melted
press into 9x13 pan and cook at 375 for 15-2 minutes.

And due to a lack of ingredients/veganizing/and wishing to half the recipe I did:
1.5cups oats
generous half cup coconut milk
0.5 cup chocolate chips
0.5 cup oats blended to a flour
0.5 cup wheat bran
0.25 cup melted margarine
2 TBSP hemp protein powder
2 TBSP unsweetened coconut

Pressed into 8x8 pan and baked at 375 for about 18 minutes.

This is from www.Bodybuilding.com/

1/2 cup skim milk
1 cup natural peanut butter
1 Tablespoon honey
1 1/4 to 1 1/2 cups of whey protein powder
2 cups dry uncooked oatmeal (not quick cooking)

Directions:
1. Combine PB, honey & milk in saucepan.
2. Warm over low heat.
3. Add protein powder and mix well.
4. Add the oats. You don't want to cook it, just warm through so you can stir it. Add more milk if it is to thick to stir.
5. Press into a 7 X 11 pan.
6. Let sit until cool. Cut into 12 squares.
7. Wrap each piece in foil or saran wrap or put in baggies.
8. Do not need refrigeration.

I have not made this recipe, but it had high ratings.

There was one I wanted to try either in one of the magazines or Tosca's books, but I can't find it. I have all three books, but am missing the kids and family one. Sure wish I could find it:)

Have you tried SparkRecipes? I find a lot of good recipes there.

I know I had a good recipe in one of the books I wanted to try. I did make the energy bars that are in the Oxygen Magazine I got over the weekend. They are great, but very sweet so not something I need to eat a lot of.
Anyone have a good protein bar recipe? Especially one without a ton of ingredients that I cannot afford to buy all at once?
