Microwave Energy Bars

these are delicious and adaptable, I have used almond butter and honey instead of the peanut butter and corn syrup and had good results. they were just softer, so maybe cut the honey back a bit, or add more granola!

How to Make Microwave Energy Bars

  • 2In another bowl, blend all the dry ingredients together, add to the hot syrup mix.
