Back to school time!! Need a in the car on the way to school quick get this into your body before school quick bar? This could work for you. These are delicious and the recipe can totally be tweaked to your taste. Add what you want, take away what you want, whatever. We happen to think dried cherries would be good in these too. And maybe white chocolate chips. Totally. And if you want less sweet (the chocolate) add more nuts and dried fruit. Just a thought. You’re smart and creative – use that creativity and make something awesome for you and your family. Fun. Go for it.
