These soft chewy breakfast bars will get you through to lunch or work as well as a hiking bar. They energize and keep you feeling full. They are not sweet like most cookies but they really satisfy.

Also check out the hobbit seed cakes from this same recipe. will have Eric take a picture of that tonight.
