Power Bars

    50 min

    When I'm on the go, I want to grab something that is packed with nutrition, not too sweet and plenty tasty. I've made this power bar recipe a bunch of times now and my taste testers (that would be my husband who is a very direct and rather stringent critic) have given it their official seal of approval (that would be eating an entire tray in two days flat).
