I've been having to avoid wheat too, various inflammation type issues and quite possibly a factor in constipation... I've been looking for "the perfect protein bar'... saw a recipe for a brownie type thing here on SparkPeople using Chickpeas that I have thought about making...

ahhh here it is

I'm still waiting for the "Cooking Fairy" to come clear up the kitchen and make these for me !!

and maybe modify with some protein powder to ramp up the protein. I'd probably use Monkfruit or Stevia for sweetener as I can't deal with the artificial ones like Splenda and such.

emoticon emoticon nice to see you both here!

I've been trying to find a bar too. I even started a thread because I'm hoping to get ideas: FORUM: FOOD
TOPIC: PROTEIN BARS: reviews ~ cheers or jeers

There is a recent addition to the thread with a link to a Spark recipe. The original recipe has too many ingredients your wife won't eat but Petalia added comments about modification ideas that might be helpful.

grains, like wheat tend to constipate her so she avoids grains

No grains at all? That's pretty broad as they come from wildly different plants, e.g. teff is completely unrelated to buckwheat, etc. If it's a digestion thing then the flakes are generally better, eg. quinoa flakes.
Anyway, you could possibly make a brownie with sweet potato flour, cocoa, rice milk and whatever level/kind of sweetener she can tolerate.
