mmmm... new recipe!

Let's begin with the fact that I LOVE bars. Larabars in particular. But, the price adds up when I eat them everyday. So, I was intrigued when I found a recipe for homemade energy bars in my Women's Health magazine.
The recipe is quite simple:
1cup honey (my one non-vegan allowance)
1cup peanut butter (or any other nut butter)
1 cup carob powder
1cup sesame seeds
1cup sunflower seeds
and any other fruit/nut/or seed that sounds good

All you have to do is heat up the honey, slowly stir in peanut butter (to make a sticky base) and then just throw all the rest of the ingredients in. Smooth into a 8x8" pan and chill for an hour in the refrigerator. Cuts into squares or bars and you're done.

I've made them twice now (the second batch turned out much better after I made some adjustments) I prefer less carob powder; I also added oats, cranberries, almonds and walnut chunks.
Take my word... they are AMAZING!!!
