FAQ About Energy Bars

Are energy bars healthy?

Energy bars have made a lot of sense for those looking to get their protein and fiber in a healthy snack, but if they contain chocolate coatings or sugary syrup then you might be better off with some other snacks.

How do you get energy bars to stick together?

Honey is a great way to sweeten your homemade energy bars, but it also provides other benefits. Not only will the honey help hold all of those pieces together and provide tasty taste without any added chemicals – its natural sweetness means that you won’t need any artificial sugars in there either!

What makes a good energy bar?

To keep your energy levels up, choose bars made with nuts and oats. Mix in dried fruits, organic grains, whey protein isolate and honey for more balanced nutrition!
