A Little of Everything Energy Bars

I've been looking for something to keep with me for when I've let myself get busy and forgotten to eat. As I was looking through recipes for granola bars, nearly all of them had problems. Some had too much chocolate and would melt in this Florida heat. Some had too much sugar or added fats. Some were just plain boring! So I improvised a few things and this is what I came up with. The applesauce really binds the bars together well if it's done right! These are not low calorie, but as I struggle to eat enough calories, my main concern here was making sure to include as many nutrients as possible.

Stash these wherever you think you might need them: in your gym bag, kids lunches or sports/dance bag, in the car, before heading to the beach or on a long walk... very handy and way better for your body than all the preservatives and processed junk in commercial granola bars. Give yourself something tasty and nutritious for your new lifestyle.
