Black and White Chocolate Chip Bars

February 26, 2010

This is one of my favorite go-to power bar recipe after a long run. I always make a big batch for my running friends and they love it after a hard workout. These bars have all natural ingredients and it is so ridiculously quick and simple to make. I have a hard time stopping at just one! This bar version of a chocolate chip cookie is great for a snack that will keep you energized throughout the day. You can add raisins, nuts, dried fruit, flax seed to suit your taste, anything works! The combination of white, dark chocolate chips, brown sugar and honey sweeten up these bars that you don’t need any other added sugars.
