I’ve been eating “energy” bars since the day I started bicycling long distance, i.e., a LONG time ago. I remember when Power Bar was still a small mom and pop company operating used equipment to crank out their protein packed goodies for athletes like me. Then they sold out and I found out I was allergic to peanuts. Over the years, I have found very few that are affordable and that I can eat.
So I set out to create a version of date balls that would be full of all the goodness I craved: the protein my body needs, the energy to get through the day, and a nutty and sweet flavor that I would enjoy.
