Gluten Free Power Bars (Approx. 15 bars)

My husband was asking for a bar that he could take with him to work that had very low sugar and high protein- but still tasted good. He needed something for energy as his job requires him to ride a bike for up to 10 hours per shift! Challenge accepted dear husband! I threw these together based on what I had in the pantry and he was thrilled, making me a good wife today!!
