2 scoops Prograde Protein Vanilla
4 Tbsp Natural Peanut Butter
1/2 cup Water
Stevia, to taste (approx: 2tsp)

Blend ingredients together in a bowl until it becomes a blob of dough.  It will be somewhat sticky.  Place the sticky dough into a small casserole or baking pan and smooth out into a flat level surface.  Then put in the refrigerator to cool or you can freeze them if you prefer.  Once cooled or frozen you can cut them up into bars.

Makes approximately (4) 2in x 4in bars.

If you would like a lower calorie bar and maybe less of a peanut butter taste you can modify the ingredients by using 2.5 scoops of Prograde Protein powder, 2 Tbsp natural peanut butter, 1/3 cup of water and 2tsp of Stevia.  This will lower the calories per bar by approximately 35 calories, 3 less grams of fat, 1 less gram of carbs and 1 extra gram of protein.

This recipe is also rich not only in natural monounstaturated fats that can help lower total cholesterol and LDL (bad) cholesterol, plus raise HDL (good) cholesterol, but rich in Omega 3 fats because of the flax meal and Omega 3 fats that flax meal provides.  You will consume about 2.5 gms of Omega 3 fats per bar.
