Homemade Pumpkin Protein Bars

This recipe is from bodybuilding.com & it's beyond fabulous! The only changes I made are: substituted domino light sugar & stevia blend for the xylitol, added 1/4 c blackstrap moleasses, I subbed soy milk for the almond milk & I used a non-whey protein powder. Mine end up being 10g of protein each- I cut it into 12 bars instead of 24 and have it for my second breakfast with 2 egg white muffins. Yum!
