Shop bought energy bars can be expensive and sometimes contain processed ingredients so these home made ones are a perfect solution. You can use the same basic ingredients and tweak to suit your tastes and needs.
As this was my first time making them, I changed only a few bits from the original recipe but next time, I will be making them with added seeds such as pumpkin and sunflower seeds. I would prefer dried cranberries to raisins, but that’s a personal choice. The dates are the one ingredient you can’t change as they create the bind you need to make the bars.
