Homemade Energy Bars vs Commercial Choices

I was doing a search today for good/tasty/healthy energy bar options.

Wow, there’s a lot of junk out there that is being hyped as the answer to this ongoing (and for so many people) culinary/snack quest.

Most of the commercial bars that I checked out either looked yucky and tasteless and/or they had ingredient lists that left much to be desired. 😦

I did find these energy bar recipes over at the Rodale Press site that actually look good.  Very simple combos of healthier ingredients, in flavours that sound appealing too: Raw Lemon-Coconut Bars, Chocolate Cashew Cookie Bars, Apple Pie Bars…to name a few.

I’m going to give these a try soon, need to get some ingredients to test out a couple of these recipes. But they do sound like good alternatives to some of the commercial energy bar offerings that are currently available.

Anyone know of a good commercial energy bar? Do tell! 😉

And do let me know if you give any of these recipes a try too.

Happy Snacking! 🙂
