Food Network: Alton Brown’s Protein Bar Recipe

I’m a Food Network junkie. I don’t watch a ton of TV but when I do I’m checking out the Food Network. A couple nights ago the show GOOD EATS with Alton Brown discussed proteins, fats and carbohydrates. I’m often annoyed with the goofiness on this show but the information was interesting so I kept watching. One of the things they discussed was protein bars and some of their ingredients. This was the most compelling portion as it got into some of the ingredients used to keep the bars moist. I took a trip over to Youtube and sure enough the episode is on there. SWEET! Check it out.

The first part is pretty information.

The second part of the episode starts off with goofiness but some interesting info. This is where Alton makes his protein bar.

I’ve never made my own protein bars but after watching this I am tempted to give it a try. You can check out the full recipe for this version here. Anyone made their own protein bar? I know there are a number of you who have your own protein pancakes but what about a bar? If you do let us know what’s worked or bombed.
