DIY Chocolate Protein Bars. I used a little stevia to keep the carbs and sugar lower but also sweetened with dates and sugar because I'm not a huge fan of artificial tasting ingredients like stevia. If you don't mind stevia, or want to reduce the sugar and carbs, go ahead and double the amount of stevia and drop the dates and sugar from the recipe. If you hate stevia, double the sugar and dates. I think I managed to strike a nice balance with this recipe as my boyfriend hates stevia and never noticed. These taste a little like brownies according to him.
