Homemade energy bar

Are you active? Do you consume alot of energy bars? Do you think brand bars are expensive?The solution? Make your own.

A homemade energy bar wins on all counts: it’s tastier, healthier, fresher and a whole lot cheaper. Forget those overhyped fructose/glucose ratios, dried fruit and honey will provide all the sugar your muscles need, while nothing beats plain old oats for a sustained energy release.

Nothing beats an energy bar when fatigue starts to take its toll and the legs turn to lead. Too bad, then, that so many big-name products are little more than overpriced sugar bombs bulked out with cheap, processed fillers and with an ingredients label that reads more like a pharmacy’s stock list than anything resembling real food.
