I have been experimenting with making my own energy bars for the past 2 weeks. So far I have made 7 different batches, some good, some not so good/unedible even for a dog. What are your favorite ingredients and recipes for your bars? Do you bake them or are they no-bake? I am trying to give mine some beter texture and crunch-any suggestions. here are ingredients in my last batch, which is arguably (among my friends) the best:
ground up cheerios
enough water to mix it all up
hahahha...i tried the same thing, they usually come out like crap. or burnt. or a combination of the two :D
i would try and mimic the ingredients on labels. i have tried things like rice molasses (i think that is right? rice syrup...something like that)
hey, how about date paste for consistency??

I just eat Cliff Bars. I find they taste pretty well and the ingredients on the label seem to provide a pretty well balanced "meal". I find myself eating them when I don't have time to eat whether I'm working out or not. At $1 they are pretty inexpensive.
