I would have said making an ordinary candy bar or brownie and add in tons more sugar or caffine (or gurana).

Make flapjacks with bananas, peanut butter/almond butter and protein powder in place of some of the oil/fat component. Add raisins or chopped dried apricots.

They won't keep as long as some store bought ones but they'll taste amazing and do you alot more good!

I make my "pancakes" with only oatmeal, protein powder, and egg whites. Top with natural pb or sugar free syrup. Yum!

I seem to remember an episode of "Good Eats" where Alton Brown was making them-you may want to do a search on the Food Network website
