Many commercial energy bars use highly processed ingredients, stripping away vitamins and minerals. Making your own bars means you can use ingredients which are natural and less processed. For taste and texture, butter, white sugar and oil are great, but you can also replace butter with oil, and sugar with naturally processed rice syrup, containing complex and simple carbohydrates. In short, make fabulous energy bars for your own high-energy lifestyle, with as much nutrition as commercial bars, and with better taste and texture. Make your ingredients suit your own requirements and taste, and live healthy.
