Recipe – Almond Energy Nut Bars

Since we have a long drive ahead of us to get to the cabin this weekend, I wanted to make these nut bars so we have healthy and filling snacks while in the car or during our long days at the lake.

These are hearty bars that are filling and tasty.

I made them this morning but didn’t have time to wait until they are completely cool before I had to cut them. I was pressed for time. So they are not as pretty as other bars, but they are delicious and that’s what counts right?

Wait for it to cool before you cut them into bars or you will get rough edges and not have clean cut bars. Just like these 😦
