Chewy Protein Bar

This recipe looks amazing in the photos on Sin or Slim. There are also several positive comments there, so I’m not quite sure what went wrong with mine.

It may have been my poor culinary skills again, or perhaps it was the whey powder I used. Whatever it was, mine turned out to be a great big sticky mess. I could hardly shape the mixture into protein bar shapes, and even after freezing the bars they were still difficult to eat without getting them everywhere.

The taste was quite good though, so I’m disappointed I couldn’t get the texture right. I keep meaning to try making them again with a different whey powder but just haven’t gotten there yet.
