Instant Protein Cocoa Bars

I learned to make this recipe from Shirley Tong a good friend of mine. Shirley was selling Shaklee products and invited me over for a demonstration. During the party she served the protein bars.

Now here is my plug for Shaklee. Months later I had become very ill. So ill I could not get out of bed for at least a couple of months. Shirley met with me and gave me a combination of vitamins and minerals to start taking. Within a week I was feeling well enough to get out of the house for small walks.

Back to the protein bar, Shirley made her protein bars with Shaklee products. I make them with regular health food store rice krispies and chocolate protein. I will admit there is a slight difference in taste but I still enjoy them from time to time.

3/4-1 cup cocoa protein
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup honey
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup nuts
1 1/2 cup rice krispies

In a saucepan heat honey, peanut butter and vanilla until soft. Quickly throw remaining ingredients in and mix. Pour into glass 9×13 pan. Pat down firmly. Let cool. Cut into small cubes.
