Recipe Of The Day: Power Bars

New Media Publishing

While some people live by power bars, seeing them as a great quick meal, others are a little more dubious about all the ingredients found in most of them. We have a solution to that problem: make your own power bars.

No one can deny the convenience of power bars. In a world where things are constantly on the move, power bars give you that quick jolt of energy you need; and a homemade power bar gives you the piece of mind that what you're eating is good for you.

This power bar recipe is loaded with quinoa -- a great source of protein -- and fruit. It's sweetened only with agave syrup and the natural sweetness of the fruit. It's a power bar for those who want to make sure they're fueling their bodies well.
