Peanut Butter Brownie Bars


So I bought a Quest Bar the other day, It reminded me of laffy taffy and not in a good way. I have made homemade protein snacks in the past and figured I'd try to make my own bars to make it easier to grab and go if needed.

      I'm very sorry the photo is not very good, I'm not sure how to photograph a protein bar and have it look appetizing, lol. I do think that next time I will roll this into balls and coat them with some unsweetened coconut flakes .

So here's the recipe I used....
