Jewel's breakfast bar recipe is proof that "good for you" can be delicious, too. We would be happy campers if we could have one of these bars and a cup of coffee every morning... Talk about getting the day off on the right foot! They are crunchy, chewy, and sweet with a hint of peanut butter flavor.
