    I have been making these for my husband for a couple of years now. I am glad to see that the recipe is posted here because I always have to scramble to find it. I usually try to stir in an additional cup of protein powder to up the protein content but that is really the only change I make. These bars really are very good and I suggest this recipe to anyone who is trying to save a little money on energy bars. These taste much better than Power Bars, by the way.
