Mint chocolate peanut butter granola protein bars

Or Protein Bars Redux, for short.
Unlike my first attempt, I substituted granola for uncooked oats (not instant oats!) and added more honey and less milk & peanut butter to make them just that bit thicker (consistency) and less gooey. The 11/2 cups of whey protein powder probably amounted to 90-94 grams of protein; and cut into 12-14 pieces. Also, this time I put them in the refrigerator to accelerate the cooling process -- because, baby, sitting the pan out on the kitchen table was taking too long for my tastes. It may be worth knowing that stirring by hand works just as well as employing a hand-mixer. And easier to clean up afterward.

Whether from individually wrapping each square in aluminum foil (and storing in Tupperware) or using oats - AND NOT CONSUMING THEM FAST ENOUGH - I noticed mold starting to form and ended up throwing out the last three or four bars. 
This time I used plastic wrap! 

Am liking this batch a whole lot more.
