So I have two different whey powders. One has a huge scoop the other a small scoop. Comparing the two scoop to the one scoop seems equivalent. Does that mean I only use one scoop instead of two for the bigger one? Common sense tells me yes so that is what I did but my bars came out dense and wet despite a clean toothpick. Maybe from the water? Taste is good. Guess I'll play around with them :) Would like to try a banana version of these since I always end up with brown bananas.
instead of 'baby food carrots', I make 8 oz of my own carrot puree. I chop up the carrots and put them in a put I put just enough water to cover the carrots. I boil them until they are soft. Then I put the carrots and remaining water in my vitamix and purree. Lovely
I'm assuming that the nutritional info listed above (10 gm protein) is for 1 square? Just a little confusing as it says it makes 16 squares, and that the serving size is 2 squares.
Thanks for any clarification,
I just posted a similar question....I asked if I could just cut into 8 squares, since serving size was 2 (cut into 16 squares). Nutritional info must be for 2/16th or 1/8th right?
I purchased regular quick cooking oatmeal and put it in my food processor until it was ground. It won't be as fine as a normal white flour but works great. I make this all the time.
I used Arrowhead Mills Organic Oat Flour, but is not gluten free. Try to make it with Brown rice flour.
