Homemade Protein Bars - Paleo Friendly

Rated as 3.33 out of 5 Stars
1

"This is our rendition of a protein bar to have for quick meal/snack options that you can make at home. We really liked this one... not too sweet. We use fruit juice sweetened dried cranberries. You can set aside some of the nut mixture if you'd like to put on top, but it makes for messy bars."

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note:
  • You can play around with the type of dried fruits you use, we do. Try papaya and some coconut for tropical bars or apples for a nice apple cinnamon bar.

After reading the reviews on this, I added two eggs and about a 1/2 cup of water to make the batter more smooth. It helped a lot but was still a little dry. Overall the bars tasted very good, ...

This recipe is great. Mixed it in oatmeal, yogurt, or just plain. Added a little peanut butter

This recipe makes crumble NOT bars! I added 1 cup of greek yogurt and it still wouldn't stick together. The recipe is incomplete or just plain bad. A total waste of money!

Yep, dry granola. Didn't read the reviews until afterward and wish I had. I will try adding an egg and more coconut oil next time for sure.
