Mike's favorite bars, a combination of energy bars, granola bars & cereal bars. Also, depending on your selection of ingredients, you can go 100% natural/organic. These can be adapted to your taste swap out anything you like for the almonds and chocolate. Dried fruits, other nuts, seeds, other flavored chips, like butterscotch or cinnamon. Anything that might melt, spread into the prepared pan, everything else can be stirred into the oat mixture.
