I’m not feeling much for words today ( I think my brain has decided to really relax on Spring Break.)  So instead I leave you with an awesome “recipe” that can be adapted to any flavor you like.  I love Lärabars but if you love them as much as I do, they get really expensive.  I figured it had to be easy to make but I never thought twice about it until Jen (from Use Real Butter) posted the amounts and instructions.

With summer fast approaching, I’m getting really excited to be outdoors!  I love these for hikes because there’s no fake ingredients and no false sugar!  I made up a pan and cut it into 14 bars (of which I froze 10 for future use- with all this warm weather in Illinois, I feel some hikes coming on!)

Happy Friday Everyone!
