Home Made Protein Bars

This was my first attempt at a home made protein bar.  The results were interesting...

Since I started eating more Paleo, the oatmeal and cereal will be replaced by quinoa and lentils. 

In addition, the next protein bar will feature organic cacao powder instead of chocolate chips.

Still trying to find a replacement/substitute for textured vegetable protein (aka processed soy) that you find in so many commercial protein bars. 

Some combination of super foods (chia seeds, quinoa, cacao powder, berries) along with protein powder and possibly egg whites for the next incarnation. 

2 cups oatmeal
2 cups Kashi cereal
12 scoops whey protein
1/2 cup almond butter
1/2 cup honey
1 banana
1 cup almond / coconut milk
1/2 cup apple sauce
1 cup cranberry
1 cup almond slivers
1/2 cup walnuts
1.5 cup chocolate chips
1 cup flax meal
1 cup water
