Energy bars are so great for a quick, convenient, on-the-go breakfast or snack, but they’re not so great for those of us who are vigilant about what we put in our bodies. After all, how do we really know what’s in them? An easy answer— by making them ourselves! It’s easier and faster than we ever would have thought, thanks to this recipe for no-bake, make-ahead bites that even have a little touch of chocolate. Watch how easily they come together.
– 2 ripe bananas
– 2 cups rolled oats
– ¼ cup almond butter (or peanut butter, or your favorite nut butter)
– ¼ cup honey
– 2 tablespoons mini chocolate chips
– ½ teaspoon cinnamon

It allows you to control the food you put into your body, connect with your family and friends over a home cooked meal, and save the money you might otherwise spend in restaurants or on processed, prepackaged foods. Believe it or not, making simple and satisfying meals from scratch doesn’t have to be hard. Here are some of my favorite easy, healthy recipes. You’ll find that eating well can also be delicious!
