These raw energy bars are the bomb! I promise they wont last in your fridge. This is the perfect snack for the afternoon or after dinner. There's no sugar added except for the natural sugar found in super nutritious dates. You can always make them sweeter by adding more dates or less sweet by using less dates.
In my house there will always be a container in the refrigerator or freezer. All I need to satisfy my craving or get a bust of energy is half of a square. You can make them into balls shape and your kids will have FUN preparing them!

Parents were amazed to see their kids having second servings! This is definitely a hit!
