Healthy Multigrain Energy Bars

Need a healthy way to start your morning, fuel for a day of hiking, or just to stay full? These bars are just what you need.  Healthy and packed full of great antioxidants and protein. The recipe is from Whole Grain Gourmet, an amazing healthy and yummy site. I am sure I will soon post more recipes from here! I substituted a few items because I didn’t have everything in my kitchen and added Whey Protein power for an extra kick! Still turned out SUPER yummy!
