Homemade Power Bars

"This was slightly adapted from an Alton Brown (Good Eats) recipe. We have made it several times with many variations and have loved it every single time. I Strongly recommend that you weigh your ingredients instead of using the volume measurements. It makes a huge difference in the finished product."
