Whole Wheat Indulgence Bars

Coming from the same website as the Energy Bars, another yummy healthy recipe from Whole Grain Groumet.This website is quickly becoming my favorite for healthy little energy packed goodness!

I made these breakfast bars as I like to call them this week and had a bar each morning and boy did they keep me going strong! This is also my first recipe using coconut oil. I had to melt the oil  in the microwave for 30 seconds or so to achieve liquid state as we keep our bungalow at a nice 65 degree’s  in the winter! Lots of layers needed.

This is the ONE small appliance that I cannot live without. My mom gave it to me as a Christmas present a few years ago and I use it all the time and have even borrowed it to friends. This little cuisinart is small and compacted and stores away nicely when not in use.
