I use three different methods to make these bars depending on the time of year I intend to eat them. In the spring and late fall the temperature is cool enough that I can get away with a n0-bake version. The summer heat tend to turn the no-bake version into spackle so I replace the honey and coconut oil with a cooked syrup like in the recipe for my KIND-OF bars. Another summer option is to add 2 beaten eggs to the mixture and bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes.
Kitchen Cook Time and Prep: This recipe makes enough bars for 10-16 back country snacks and takes about 20 minutes to make
Tools: You will need a food processor, large mixing bowl and an 8×8 flat bottom glass dish.
Back Country-What to Expect: Protein, carbs and fat all in one bar. Can’t ask for more.
