GOLD MEDAL BARS-DIABETIC FRIENDLY (SALLYE)

Another great recipe I found in one of Mother's old cookbooks. I have modernized it a bit, and substituted coconut for nuts to accommodate those with nut allergies.

I don't remember ever making these before, but they are worth the effort. They beat the processed energy bars (which are full of chemicals) offered at stores hands-down.

These will be great to carry along on our next camping adventure.
