Author Notes: For the past few months, I have been playing around with power bar recipes. When I'm on the go, I want to grab something that is packed with nutrition, not too sweet and plenty tasty.

I've made this power bar recipe a bunch of times now and my taste testers (that would be my husband who is a very direct and rather stringent critic) have given it their official seal of approval (that would be eating an entire tray in two days flat). http://www.elanaspantry.com/power-bars/

I thought I saw the nutritional value of these bars on here yesterday, but I don't see them now. Can you tell me how many grams of protein are in each bar?

Thank you!
