I Made Poo - Custom Energy Bars

Thanks to a sweet buy-one-box-get-one-free deal from Earndit, I got to create my own energy bars from ElementBars. Using their simple web tool, I got to pick my ingredients and even give my creation a name. They even show you the nutritional value in real-time so you can can tweak your recipe according to your needs. Seriously, very cool.

So what exactly goes into Karen's Dinosaur Poo?

The bar starts out with a high-protein soynut and almond butter base. The add-ins include walnuts, prunes, pumpkin spice, flax seeds, and whey protein. I was going for something that's high in protein and fiber but lower in sugar.

What does it taste like?

Well, I was imagining the Dinosaur Poo to taste more like a holiday fruitcake (I <3 FRUITCAKE) but in actuality, it tastes more like a hearty mash of roasted soybeans with a hint of sweetness and spice.

Maybe I should soak it in rum.

When I read the title, I was expecting to see some variation on homemade Scooby Poo Bars.
