    When you need a pick me up and don’t wanna reach for a candy bar, reach for real delicious food instead.  It’ll satisfy and nourish.  Here’s my favorite base recipe for an “energy bar” that I like to make even smaller for bites.  Remember, snacks should help hold you over until your next meal, so
