These were great! I had to swap walnuts for the almonds since I was out and added some extra flax and chia seeds I had kicking around in the kitchen. Will definitely make again.
I made these as a substitute for commercial energy / protein bars. Put some in a zip lock bag and they are perfect on the bike fuel. The size is perfect also. They taste great! The next time I will add some maple syrup.
Great for packing in lunches or taking with you on a hike! High in protein and yummy too!!
