Homemade Energy Bars


by: twotontos.com

These energy bars are not only tasty but they are easy enough to fold up in some baking paper and take along to any sports event for when you need that extra little bit of energy. This batch I made for Gaston’s rugby game last month to share with the team along with lots of sweet melons and oranges. For the dried fruit you can use any type you think might go well, for this lot I used a few of our apricots we got from a friend who lives on an orchard and we dried ourselves.
