What if I don't have baby food? My friend suggests sugar free blackberry jam that she had on hand but she used a little less of it. I tried applesauce works great!

My Whey Protien was not sugar free. Initially the recipe said it was only ~90 calories for 2 bars...when I calculated it with the ingredients I used, it came out to ~140 calories for the 2 bars. SO, I took the serving size down to 1 bar. It's still a decent no complaints. And it's worth every bit of the 140 if you want to eat the 2 bars. :)

Where did I get it?
I got this recipe from a good friend, and workout pal, Brenda T. Maybe she can tell me where she got it from. :) I'm SO glad she shared. These are delicious!
