high protein snack

A friend of mine brought over these protein bars this weekend (knowing our wheat intolerances and peanut allergies). My kids loved them and we didn't see that sugar crash that we often see with cookies. I love the amount of protein in these, since we are a pretty active family and often need a quick "recharge" after an hour or so at the gym. I'm anxious to try them on our ski trip coming up.

2 Cups sunflower, almond or soy butter (you can use peanut if not allergies)
1 3/4 C. oney or acai (I used a little agave nectar and it worked well)
2 1/4 C. protein shake mix
3- 31/2 C. oats

The trickiest part is mixing it if you use soybutter. The sunbutter mixes a lot easier. We used chocolate protein shake mix and they tasted kind of like a Resees.
