I used cling film before, did the job. If they are too sticky try using less water next different powders need more/less water.

Any idea how long these would last in the fridge? I have a few that have been there about 10 days. They look ok, but, you know... death and all that.

Tried these last week and brought one with me to work each day since, all went well provided I had them early in the day!! once it got past lunch time it reminded me of a 2 year old eating a chocolate cake, though it did stop me from raiding the vending machine at 5 o'clock

will definitely try it again and use less water

Made these at the weekend. They're an unholy mess (wet and sticky) but they taste good and do the job. Next time I'm going to try less water and perhaps more oats. Might get the girlfriends input too cause she knows her baking. Not exactly the same but she'd know more than me about how these things work.

Thanks to OP!

Made these Sunday a week ago for himself, played around slightly with the ingredients - substituted honey for maple syrup, added dessicated coconut, an extra spoon of peanut butter, used flaked almonds instead of whole etc...

Im REALLY impressed!! I did as advised and put the mixture into a ziplock bag to freeze solid, had himself carve the frozen result into 7 bars, individually wrapped them in greaseproof paper held closed with a little sellotape and straight into the fridge in a tupperware container. He has been eating practically one a day since (theres one left now). They actually 'set' a bit better after a couple of days, the last couple Ive seen him eat have been far less messy looking. Theyre grand straight out of the greaseproof paper.

Ive just been requested to make them again, but to use crunchy peanut butter this time - so theyre a hit!

Thanks a lot!

Ive been making them since I first posted on the thread last november. Ive changed the ingredients a little, crunchy peanut butter is a hit, as is the addition of dessicated coconut. Sometimes I forget bits, one making of them, frozen and all and I realised Id not put in the oats. However, himself eats them no matter what way I make them and he loves them. Happy days.

Transform1234, a boardsie has this good step by step video for making energy bars, you could add in additional protein if needed. Think it was in another thread but cannot seem to find it so I'll repost!

Same as, I keep mine in the freezer and take them out as i need them,they only take 10 minutes thawing then i cut one bar, they're much easier to eat then.
