My mother-in-law sent me some delish power balls the other day while my hubs was gone on a mission. I accidentally ate them all before he came home so he didn’t get to try any, whoops! They were just such a perfect on-the-go treat that I could grab whenever I knew I’d be hungry but didn’t have time to sit down to a meal. So I grabbed the recipe for those power balls and adapted them into a granola bar that I made with SNICKERS®. Since we’ve been traveling a ton lately, I made a bunch of these to keep in my freezer and grab whenever I know I’ll need an energy pick-me-up.
The SNICKERS® Almond and Peanut Butter variations are really yummy and I used both in this recipe. I grabbed the individual bars at Walgreens but I also saw fun-size bags with all the variations at my local store FYI. And another note: I tried making these with peanut butter instead of honey but unfortunately they came out too crumbly; I think the honey just sticks better.
