My sister-in-law made gluten-free power bars for me when I came to visit last summer. And they were really, really good. And I was really too lazy to make them for myself until I got desperate (not too much seems tempting these days with the pregnancy nausea situation, and protein is a great nausea fighter). So I made these today and wanted to post the recipe website, along with my easier, cheaper version.
Elana's recipe calls for stevia and agave nectar, though, expensive healthier sugar substitutes. So I went with a drizzle of honey. And it called for weird salt, and I went with regular. And it called for 70% cocoa chocolate and I went with chocolate chips. Anyway, it was pretty easy, you just need to have almond butter to make it (I got some at Trader Joe's a while ago, actually, and just never used it), and if you don't have coconut oil you could just put canola or something in it.
