    Ooh! I follow your blog, and if you look at my journal, I posted that I made those yesterday.

    I could not find the protein powders that you suggested, so I had to use what I had on hand: Vega vanilla chai. It's not completely primal or paleo as it has sprouted brown rice protein but no dairy, fillers or other stuff. I used almond butter and added some dark chocolate chips.

    My husband went CRAZY for them after first wrinkling his nose at me. My 5-year-old loved them too.

    Thank you for the great idea!

    Thanks! This should link to my journal. I'm a "recovering vegan", so I'm very new to some of the primal/paleo cooking, though I wasn't a junk food vegan and have been using whole foods, nut butters, coconut products for a long time.

    Recovering Vegan goes Primal!

    I am going to try this! I have some SunWarrior vanilla and chocolate at home, but the only nut butter I currently have is peanut... not exactly paleo/primal... but I don't have anything else at home right now (although I want to pick up some almond butter or something when I next go shopping).

    I love peanut butter and think the no peanut butter rule is dumb, lol. We only go through a small jar a month, so it's no big really. I love Peanut Butter & Co!

    I've wondered about the peanut butter controversy as well............ but according to Mark - peanuts have a MOLD that is very unhealthy!!! So I'm assuming the mold is transferred into the peanut butter.............. But all things aside! I absolutely LOVE peanut butter!! I have avoided it at all costs since going primal. But I don't know............... peanut butter rocks! and if I could use it to make these awesome protein bars....... well, sorry Mark - but I just might have to go this route. Almond butter is much more expensive!!! Sometimes we just have to do what is most economical.

    Tomi - yes, we all have to decide where we are going to spend our limited grocery budget! I do almond butter for me and my youngest, but PB for my oldest who still eats both PB and white potatoes. Anyhoo, I had a taste of the PB ones and they were FABULOUS!!!!!
