Energy bars are a great way to keep yourself energized when you’re out and about. They provide a quick boost of energy without the calories or sugar that can make you feel groggy after just one bite! There’s no better time than now to start stocking up on these energy boosters because they’re going fast, so don’t delay!
The first thing I do with any new batch of Energy Bars is add some honey. Honey helps to balance out the sweetness of the chocolate and it gives them a nice sweet taste. You could also use maple syrup if you have access to it. If you want something sweeter, try adding some agave nectar instead.
Agave nectar is made from sugarcane juice and has a much lower glycemic index than regular table sugar (which makes sense since it’s not refined).
Next, I like to blend them in my Vitamix blender until smooth. Then I pour them into individual mason jars and store them in the fridge. These bars will last a long time in the refrigerator.
If you’re looking for something a little different, check out these Energy Bites! They’re delicious and easy to make too!
