  • These cake bars are delicious. I like them better than the black bean brownies (those were pretty good too) but the only problem is that they are too good so I end up having like 3-4 right out of the oven on the first night. Luckily I’ll be switching from cutting to bulking soon so this will no longer be a bad thing. Keep em coming dude!

  • Another Great recipe! If you love chocolate you will love these. I’ve made these several times now. They go great with breakfast or as a snack throughout the day. I recommend storing them in the refrigerator if you plan on eating them throughout the week. The first time I made them they started to smell after about 4 days in the pantry.

  • These turned out to be delicious! I swapped the vanilla protein powder with chocolate flavored protein powder and the chocolaty element was even more pronounced.

    I love them. Thanks for the wonderful recipe.

  • Derek, your recipes are seriously the bomb! You’re the man! There isn’t a day I don’t find myself browsing your recipes for new healthy ideas!
