Homemade Lowcarb Bars
Some time ago I got a recipe from one of the list for homemade bars (don't remember whose recipe so can't give proper credit). I've fooled around with them quite a bit and have come up with lots of combos that I like. Basically:
1/2 stick butter (1/4 cup), softened
2-3 oz cream cheese, softened
3/4 cup protein powder (more or less to taste)
sweetner to taste

Mix together to the desired consistency, for example, I use mine for hiking and skiing snacks so make them very firm (more protein powder, less cream cheese)but my friend likes hers the consistency of fudge (less powder, more cream cheese). The combos I've enjoyed (using vanilla protein powder) are: Maple walnut with SF maple syrup or maple extract and chopped walnuts; butter pecan with butter pecan extract and chopped pecans; peanut butter substituting the peanut butter for the cream cheese and adding chopped peanuts [or use Peter Pan PB with no added salt or sugar]. Using chocolate protein powder -- add walnuts or almonds and SF chocolate syrup or chocolate extract to taste. Also could try coating them in Lynne's chocolate for a really luxurious taste. The possibilities seem endless and they're cheaper and taste better than those I've bought. Anita"
-------------------------------------------------
And they don't seem to cause the stalls the Atkins bars have been known to do if eaten in small amounts! My "bite-size" kept gettting bigger each time I tried it and each time I made them I liked the taste even better...until I had to quit making them!
