I love when I find some yummy recipes with some of my favorite ingredients. Here is one with my favorite Protein powders that I adapted from the recipe created in the Usana Test Kitchen (Usana Nutrimeal FREE-no gluten, no soy no dairy!) It is so easy to make and my kids just gobbled them up! They are easy to adjust to your favorite ingredients and have great flavor! I like to let them brown just a bit more to get that toasty flavor-but watch that they don’t burn!

Yummy! If you like a thinner bar, press into the bottom of an 8×8 pan. Experiment with ingredients! If you are looking for an excellent dairy free protein powder-that tastes great- look no further! check out my site at www.MichelleWald.usana.com and get some !
