Chocolate Chip Clif Bar Recipe Hack

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by patriciamercer84

Sweet, chewy, a little crisp and packed with flavor. These are sweetened with brown rice syrup, do not include any sugar, and are gluten-free. These make an awesome snack, and are a perfect substitution for breakfast or lunch if you’re running late or on the go.

These are great. I have used honey instead of the brown rice syrup. I keep them freezer and they are a great snack!
