These bars are fantastic! I find though that they need a bit more moisture, and add soy milk to give them a better consistency.

Just made these with a few changes, and I finally I have a quick snack my constantly-hungry and sugar-craving teenage swimmer will eat :) I left off the Chia and Hemp, and added pepitas, sunflower seeds, and dried coconut flakes. I did add coconut oil and extra freshly ground peanut butter (instead of almond), and doubled the raw honey, but even with the additional wet ingredients, I still had to really pack the mixture together with my hands. My sons love those protein and energy bars during their workouts, but the 80 or more ingredients of those things really bothers me. I am still looking for a good baked bar they can keep in their swim bags.

I love all of the ingrediants in these bars/balls but had a lot of trouble keeping them together. I finally figured out what worked best for me, replacing almond with peanut butter and reducung the amount to 1/3 C. Then I mixed 1/3 of PB2 and gept it very watery. I put all items ( minus the PB2)in the food processor and added craisins. Then while it is mixing I gradually add the PB2. I also put a bowl of water next to me when creating the balls to dip my hands in, it really helps the balls take shape!
