Homemade Protein Bars and Cakes

There are so many different types of homemade protein bars and cakes, that I've decided to choose just a few to list.  I wanted to show a sample - some have peanut butter, some are no-bake, and one is more cake-like than a brownie.

Most homemade protein recipes include protein powder, oatmeal, and egg beaters or whites, and many also have natural peanut butter.  Nuts, seeds, and dried fruit are optional.  You can choose any flavor of protein powder - vanilla, chocolate, banana, etc.  Generally speaking, if the recipe requires baking, a casein or casein blend such as Beverly International's Ultimate Muscle Protein works best, although you can use whey protein if you prefer.  If it is microwaved, whey protein such as Beverly International's Muscle Provider is my first choice. If it is a no-bake recipe, then either protein will work well.

I can't say for certain who created each recipe, as so many of us have tried and substituted different ingredients until we found the right combination for taste and consistency.  Also, if a nutritional breakdown is given, it is based on the brands of ingredients that I use.  Depending on your preferences, there may be slight differences so it will be necessary to recalculate.
