Do you still remember the sailor man Popeye? I am sure you do 🙂 who can forget that he always have eaten spinach to get energy. I really like spinach but today I have something which I like more and gives you lot of energy as well. That’s why I call them the ultimate energy bars.
As January is almost over I am sure that some people could need a little energizer. It seems that this is the month which is pretty difficult for a few people. Starting into the new year, having lot of New Year’s resolutions, trying to stick to them, failing, starting again, failing again and ending up in a bad mood because of failing. Why can’t people have resolutions in any other month instead of January? I am sure that it would be much easier in any other month, for example some when in summer. 😉 I also had two resolutions in 2012 and I am still successful with both of them. I think I made them because I just realized that it was the right moment for having a change. I don’t believe that it needs New Year for making a change, even it can help some people. In the end, this is fortunately a self-decision. 🙂
The following recipe can be used as an energizer, a healthy and even a vegan snack. I love to store them in my airtight can as they even look very good in there. 😉 And isn’t it much more inventive if you store some self made bars in your kitchen instead of buying any in a store? It is definetly…
