SIMPLE.GREEN.LIVING

This might just be the easiest, tastiest recipe yet.  In fact, it’s so easy, my at-the-time five year old, Mallory, started mixing up her own batch of power bars without my help…and they still tasted great.  We love to have these in the fridge because they are the perfect grab n’ go snack.  There is always at least one kid (or parent) running out the door hungry and that’s when these are a life-saver.  They also have a permanent spot in our cooler on road trips and camping trips.  You can really get quite creative by making these gluten-free or nut-free by adjusting the oats, nut-butters or optional mix-ins.  These can be quite filling with the variety of proteins and healthy fats, so a 1.5″ x 1.5″ square is sufficient, They are also best washed down with a glass of water.
