Homemade Energy Bars

My youngest son is super busy here lately. It’s his senior year of high school, he’s class president, treasurer for his TSA club,  plus he’s taking night classes at the college,  applying for scholarships, maintaining a 4 pt GPA (straight A student! Is this mom proud or what!) and now he’s gearing up for track season. I get tired just thinking about his busy schedule.  

The last couple of weeks he’s working double overtime to get a robot ready for a super competition coming up in less than a month. Late nights and early mornings leaves little to no time for breakfast. I bought some breakfast bars thinking at least he would have something to eat as he runs out the door. I know I should have read the label in the store. Big oops there. Not so healthy.

I’m now experimenting with my own homemade breakfast bars. I found a yummy recipe for homemade energy bars and I think my kiddo will love them. Here’s the easy recipe for homemade energy bars. Packed full of oats, bananas, dried fruit, eggs, juice, and a scoop of protein powder, they are low in calories, low in fat, and high in protein and carbs. Just what my active teenager needs to get his day going.
