OMG It’s August!!! I’m never going to catch up! I’m pretty sure this has been the busiest summer of my life! The weather has been fabulous this weekend! I didn’t want to turn on the oven, but I wanted to make energy bars, so I researched no-bake energy bar recipes. These Strawberry Vanilla Energy Bars were the result of my investigation.
I realize the bar thing might be getting out of control. But, I had to sneak this last one in before I promise to give it a rest for a couple of weeks or months. These bars were inspired by energy bars called Cake Batter Energy Bars from the blog “Chocolate Covered Katie”. I was going to copy the recipe outright and give Katie all the credit but I was missing a couple if the items it called for. So I’ll give Katie like 98% of the credit and I’ll take 2% for my “two cents worth”.
These are the first healthy homemade bars of mine that taste 100% naughty. In fact, I don’t know if I will make them again because it was difficult to stop myself from eating them all. And, although each bar is low in calories, if you eat every single one of them you will probably consume a good portion of your caloric intake for the day. What I’m trying to say is that these bars are really, really good! I will agree with and quote Katie in saying, “These bars will rock your face off!”
