These no bake bars are a great source of energy, and kids love them. For adults, too with our busy life styles, these oats bar are great to take along on the run, they are packed with the goodness of Oats!! perfect health benefits combined with taste. Also they store well. You can make more and store them in the freezer too.
I find these super easy to prepare and the best part there is no baking to do.Also by preparing them myself I know exactly what ingredients I am eating or giving my family , as most of the store bought bars are filled with ingredients like High fructose corn syrup, you don't want to have that!!! in your diet.
