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'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.
