Not Just Any Raw Energy Bar

Today I made a couple batches of some very special raw energy bars.  These were developed for my two youngest children with their input of ingredients!

I asked them if they wanted a smoothie for snack, but they decided they wanted other superfoods!

What parent in their right mind would say no to a healthy, packed with omega’s,  fiber rich, snack?

It was so easy, even kids could make this (with supervision using processor of course!)
