Recipe: Semi-Homemade Quest Bar Poptarts
A delicious recipe from our very own Quest Creator Shannan Penna for “Pop-Tarts” made from QUEST BARS!
A) Roll out one Vanilla Almond Quest Bar on a rolling pin (can use any flavor bar, apple is awesome and chocolate brownie too).
B) Fill inside with 1-2 tbps sugar free jam. I used raspberry.
C) Topped with another Vanilla Almond Quest Bar, rolled out and trim edges with knife.
D) Then press edges with fork… crimping edges so jam stays inside.
E) Broil for four minutes in oven. You can use a toaster oven also for browned toasty top. The microwave will also work but you wont get the browned top, (Adjust times).
F) Top it with a little mixture of protein powder and peanut butter or whipped cottage cheese & flavoring.
G) Add some sprinkles for fun, effect & crunch!

I’m not crazy about the chewy texture of Quest bars! However at 200 calories they are half the calories of the standard protein bar.
I am eager to see if rolling them out an cooking them changes the consistency and makes them more enjoyable!
I will try this recipe! Stay tuned!
I will try rolling out one bar and folding in half rather than using 2 bars!
**Update** January 12th 2014
I tried one last week rolling it out was easy, and making it was easy.
The texture was like burnt crispy rubber, but it did taste better and made the consistency crispy, rather than edible modeling clay! It is a nice alternative to the modeling clay every once in a while.
I am now wondering how my homemade bars would make a pop tart!
