I use a protein bar when I'm out traveling somewhere. Hiking, snowmobiling, what have you. Convenient to just have one in a jacket/backpack pocket. Not so convenient to bring a tub of powder and a blender.
If you're talking about just home/gym situations... then stick with powder and a blender (or spoon).

You just have to try different ones. Myoplex Chocolate is pretty good, but you have to try them and see what you like better.
And for bars I usually get tigers milk bars

Vanilla flavored whey is pretty gross.
I like the chocolate flavored whey. You could also make a smoothie with it, maybe some milk and a cut up banana?
Anyway, I've got no experience with the bars or any protein shake made to put on mass.

I make my own. they are the ultimate. energy, protein, nutrients all in one. raw organic ingredients only. and SO DELICIOUS (also very filling)
thats about half a small batch, about 45 mins to make with the prep work.
-pistachios (shelled and chopped up)
-dried fruit/berries (blueberries and cranberries especially good)
-other good nuts like almonds and pecans
-protein powder if you want extra protein
-honey or maple syrup
-organic peanut or almond butter, blended with mashed up dates (good base)
-chocolate (if you like chocolate)
next time I'm gonna try using matcha in the base

Is there any special method of preparation or mixture? Or simply food processor everything, mix it all, and form to shape?
Also, by chance, quantities? For that size a batch, what ballpark amount of ounces/tbspn/cups/etc. necessary?
