    These look delicious I can’t wait to try them!!!

  2. Tawny on March 1, 2013 at 12:00 am

    Made these for myself, my son, along with a few of his football teammates….they loved it! I’m making the Protein bars next! Thanks for the recipes. 🙂

    • Derek Howes on March 2, 2013 at 12:00 am

      That is AWESOME! Love feedback like this. Thanks for letting me know how they came out. They will LOVE the protein bars!

  3. Gianpaolo on April 23, 2013 at 12:00 am

    These are delicious. I’ve made these about 3 times total now and they are best when you can sift in the powdered ingredients (to prevent clumps) but either way these are easy and great.

    • Derek Howes on April 24, 2013 at 12:00 am

      Glad you liked them. One of my first (and favorite) quick recipes!

  4. Walt on July 14, 2013 at 12:00 am

    So you have to eat 4 cups for the 160 calories?

  5. SukiLeung on February 25, 2014 at 12:00 am

    Can’t wait to try!:) Can i bring it on the way?

    • Derek Howes on February 25, 2014 at 12:00 am

      They melt so probably not unless you have a portable way to keep them cool! I hope you like them though!

  6. Eric on July 3, 2014 at 12:00 am

    This is a genius idea! Get that fix for chocolate peanut butter cups without eating the sugar and fat bomb of the real thing. Question for you, Derek. Do you have any tips for eating when you aren’t cooking? For example, family get-togethers at holidays, going to someone else’s house for dinner, etc.

    • Derek Howes on July 3, 2014 at 12:00 am

      Hey Eric! Thank you. I’ll do a video or article on this topic! I get asked it ton. Let me see how fast I can get it up!

  7. Harsh Shah on July 14, 2014 at 12:00 am

    Hey Derek! I am a vegetarian but really want to make this. What can I substitute the egg white with? I am thinking milk or vanilla Greek yogurt or something with a liquid consistency that also has protein?

    Let me know.
    Thanks

    • Derek Howes on July 17, 2014 at 12:00 am

      You could definitely try Greek yogurt! You could also blend some cottage cheese up and use some extracts to flavor it (if you like cottage cheese).

  8. Drew on September 23, 2014 at 12:00 am

    Have you tried making these with PB2?

    • Derek Howes on September 24, 2014 at 12:00 am

      Not yet! Maybe I should throw together another video on these with some different combinations!

  9. Joyce on February 10, 2015 at 12:00 am

    can I use shakeology as the protein powder?
    Thanks:)

  10. Rushil on March 7, 2015 at 12:00 am

    Derek, your recipes are amazing and make cutting so easy and so much fun. thanks a lot and keep up the great work!

  11. Chris on August 5, 2015 at 12:00 am

    Just made my first batch using mint choc protein powder cant wait to try them

  12. Marissa on August 13, 2015 at 12:00 am

    Hi! I’ve really been wanting to try your recipes but I’ve got a question on this one. How much is 40 grams of protein powder in cups? Also, do you think you could come up with an ingredient substitution chart for whenever we’re out of or don’t like an ingredient? Thanks 🙂
