I use Genisoy Soy Protein Powder. I don't believe there is whey in that kind. Enjoy!

I can't wait to try these. I've tried making protein bars in the past and they came out very dry. Is there a way of adding moisture/stickiness without adding sweets/more carbs?

These are pretty sticky, although you could always add a little water if needed.
