Lip Smacking And Nutritious Oats, Dried Fruits And Honey Protein Bars


The other day the husband came home bragging about some protein bars. Over a hot cup of coffee, he started to share more about those protein bars. Interested to know more about it? Then simply read this post, you will be glad you did.

It seemed that his boss used to bring these bars which his wife made for him. That day he shared the protein bar with my husband. And guess what? It tasted awesome.

Now I got hooked up about these awesome snacks and summoned up all my courage and made a call to the wife of his boss, and she was very friendly and shared with me the recipe. The next day she even sent me the protein bars neatly packed in a foil.


My! My! The taste was divine, you could taste the blend of dried fruits and dates, with the coarse and chunky oats and corn flakes. It was really awesome. And so I am sharing it with you.
