Recipe: Homemade Protein Bars


Mike leads an active lifestyle and is trying to bulk up at the moment. He needs all the protein he can get and few more calories a day than the average guy. He moans about spending loads of money on protein bars/shakes and that, although they do the job, they taste awful. So we've come up with our own recipe to keep him happy.
