Ever experience a midday crash? The one that leaves you hangering for a candy bar or a soda from the vending machine? Homemade energy bars are a perfect solution. Eat them for breakfast for an energizing morning that will keep you sustained all day (plus they’re a great grab n’ go!). Or, have some on hand for a midday snack to keep you from crashing.
