8.3 grams of protein is decent for 115 calories, but I would like them to have more fiber and more iron etc overall. I don't think these are on their way to becoming a dessert in my house, but they might be the basis for a protein bar. There are 3 main reasons that I want to make my own protein bars:
1. Cost - I don't have the numbers, but I know that making them is going to be a lot cheaper than buying them.
2. Control - Whether it be sugar, flavor or just the overall pronoune-ability of the ingredients, I want to know what is going into my body. I also like that I can play with them to get the flavor/nutrition/portion combination that I want.
3. Convenience - I like having my protein powder with soy or almond milk, but the convenience of a protein bar can't be beat.
