    Hi!
    Do these freeze well?

    Thanks so much for posting these recipes!

    • Derek Howes on May 18, 2017 at 12:00 am

      Hey Cha! Sure, you can definitely freeze them. I would just make sure they are sealed well.

    Can you sub in pumpkin for the applesauce? I’m not allowed to have fruit on contest prep but I really want to make these!

    • Derek Howes on August 19, 2014 at 12:00 am

      I’ve never done that with this recipe but it’s worth a shot! Let me know if you do!

    So quick and easy to make! Made these last night….it was a bit of a dhftns weekend! Just need a smaller dish to cook them in because they were super thin (which isn’t a bad thing at all).

    Still bloody delicious!

    • Derek Howes on June 23, 2014 at 12:00 am

      Glad you liked them Kandis! Thanks my friend

    Hey Derek:

    I work out about 5-6 days a week and love all the high protein recipes you are doing here. Only suggestion…I’m diabetic so it would help for you to mention a lower carb version, or when carbs are slow digesting (like the oats in this recipe). Just sayin’.

    Keep up the great work!

    • Derek Howes on April 29, 2014 at 12:00 am

      Thanks for the awesome suggestion Russ! I’ll definitely do some lower carb stuff in the future.

  5. Sheldon on April 12, 2013 at 12:00 am

    Am I able to leave out the apple sauce on this?

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

      No, they’ll end up really, REALLY dry!

  6. Jen on January 24, 2013 at 12:00 am

    My brother has a really late class this week, so I made some of these for the both of us, just to try it out. They were delicious! I am definitely making these more often! 🙂 Thank you!
    I am also planning on making your sweet potato pie, as I love sweet potatoes!

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

      Glad to hear you guys liked them! The sweet potato pie is amazing! 🙂

  7. Toni on January 23, 2013 at 12:00 am

    Thank you for posting your recipes. I love the quick protein bars! (and how easy they are to make) I plan to keep these on hand.

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

      No problem Toni! Thank you for the support
