    I’m really confused.. are we suppose to combine the ingredients in a skillet? And when you say “cool completely” do you mean in the fridge or just on the counter? Thanks

    I followed this recipe exactly and these came out REALLY dry. I think the protein powder and oats need to be a smaller measurement to avoid these being so dry. I just used the last of my peanut butter, so I’ll probably be eating these out of a bowl, cause there’s not way these are going to STICK together.

    The first time I made them they were dry. So this time I reduced the protein powder to one cup and doubled the milk (I used almond milk) then added a tablespoon of ground flax and tablespoon of chia seeds and got the right consistency!

    I made these. I put them in a 9×9 pan… I would of liked them a little drier. I used almond milk instead of milk. I put dark chocolate on the top of half for my bf. I have to remember they are protein bars… I enjoy them alot!
