This started out as my attempt to replicate a breakfast bar that was made by a Portland bakery that has since closed. I had to add more of the liquid ingredients to make the bars less crumbly, although they still crumble some if you aren't careful. Also, I like these better than the bars I started out trying to copy.
You can play around with pretty much everything here: your choice of sweetener, nut butter, nuts, fruits. Just make sure you have enough of the liquid ingredients and dates to bind this together.
I love these bars, and they have become my grab and go breakfast, along with a mug of matcha. They're vegan when made without honey. Enjoy!
I'm passionate about helping foodies learn how to drop their excess for good without dieting. I help you discover what is really causing your weight problem (it isn't that you love food!), fix it at the source, and teach you how to enjoy the foods you love while permanently losing your desire to overeat. I'd love to teach my method to you! I’m also a gourmet cook and baker who struggled with my weight for 40 years before discovering the secret of how to stop emotional eating and overeating. I am a certified life coach, arbitrator and mediator, and I live on the coast of Maine.
