A few helpful tips – 

🌿 Store Energy Bars in the fridge or cooler  only.

🌿They last for upto 4 weeks (that is, if you / your family let them last that long) 😊

🌿Substitute Stevia or any sweetener of choice for maple syrup

🌿Use 1/3 cup applesauce instead of molasses for a different flavor

🌿Use cacao butter instead of coconut oil for a thicker creamier texture of chocolate 

🌿Use cocoa powder, goji berries, green tea powder, coconut powder, sea salt as toppings
