This is not a traditional bar recipe. It can be made with all organic ingredients if you choose. It is packed with healthy ingredients that you are sure to enjoy. All my children comment, 'Mom, I love these things.' These are great for camping, sporting events, or anytime when you need that extra kick of energy topped with chocolate.

These are amazingly delicious with tons of flavor and texture. My husband can't stop eating them. The only thing I did different is mix the chocolate chips in with the rest and that was just laziness on my part. It's taken years to find a perfect recipe and this is it.

The jury is still out on this one. They have a nice flavor to them. The only thing I'm not sure about is the chocolate. I thought these would be the perfect snack for my husband when he hikes and bikes, but I think the chocolate topping might make them hard to manage. I followed the recipe exactly the only thing I did different is not melt the chocolate chips I just sprinkled them on top of the bars and stuck them back in the oven for a minute then spread them. One less thing to clean. Thanks for sharing.
