I typically use the Shaklee Instant Protein Soy Mix for my bars. You can use any of the Shaklee protein powders for this recipe and it will come out pretty close to the same. The IPSM is flavorless and is a substitute for flour in other recipes. I keep this as one of the staples in my pantry. You can throw it into muffin, pancake, cookie or cake recipes and it will cut back on the carbs and of course the flour. It is also great to add to oatmeal or applesauce to make sure your kids are getting their protein.
If you choose to use the IPSM, you will have 12 servings at 10 g protein each that offers ALL of the amino acids, especially the 9 essential amino acids that your body does not produce on its own.
After a full day of VBS… she LOVES a protein bite or two! LOL (Yes, she did her own hair today!)
