Protein bar recipe for afghanistan

My nephew is in the forces in afghanistan and has asked me to send him some protein bars as he is doing lots of heavy work and wants a change from his army food and to add bulk

Thought i might try and make him some - so any suggestions gratefully received

Nothing chocoloate - it melts before it gets to him
Must keep for a few weeks
Ideally would taste nice

I'm thinking possibly something with oats/ golden syrup/cocounut/sultanas

  1. It is a lovely idea to make him protein bars... Just know that in order to get enough protein in there, you'll need to buy either protein powder or some kind of textured vegetable protein... A quick google search turned up this site with lots of homemade protein bar recipes...
