The threat is in that they're so good, you won't be able to eat just one. But it is good to know these bars are packed nutritionally and full of flavour! These are the ones that go to school with my kids more often than not.

These are great! I had to leave out the nuts as there are nut allergies at my daughter's school. I did add about 3/4 cup of mini chocolate chips instead which did taste great, but made these a little less healthy than the recipe as posted. Thanks for posting!
