Granola Energy Bars

This is not a traditional bar recipe. It can be made with all organic ingredients if you choose. It is packed with healthy ingredients that you are sure to enjoy. All my children comment, ‘Mom, I love these things.’ These are great for camping, sporting events, or anytime when you need that extra kick of energy topped with chocolate.
