According to myfitnesspal.com the entered ingredients figure out to around 400 calories per bar (when sliced into 8). When I purchased the ingredients I made sure to get enough for multiple batches. Spending $75 dollars on ingredients I was able to make enough bars that the price per bar was $.50. Not bad for a hour of work. I would also consider leaving the chocolate out as the bars are rather sweet, but that depends on your sweet tooth.
There is a bar for everyone and specific bars for different points of a workout. I consume a fair amount of these due to convenience. They are easily tossed in a pack as a last minute trail snack, or travel well while commuting by bike. It is hard as a plant based athlete to find a bar that is not filled with unnecessary ingredients. On a recent backpacking trip one of the guys in our group was consuming ProBars. This got me wondering if I could find a recipe that replicated the caloric density of the ProBars but at a fraction of the cost. After a search on Google I came across a ProBar replica recipe that promised similar nutritional makeup. A trip to Sprouts and $60 dollars later I had all the ingredients to make a few batches. At that price point I would need to make a fair amount of bars to really be cost/time effective. The recipe below was acquired from this blog.
