Here is the recipe:
1 cup local, unprocessed honey
1 tsp vanilla

1 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup chopped, dairy-free dark chocolate chips. (I use Enjoy Life brand)

As an energy bar during exercise over one hour, eat two every 45-60 minutes. Start with one to make sure it does not upset your stomach - especially if you are not used to eating real food during a work out.
There are only approximately 34 calories per bite. To increase the calories, add finely chopped raw almonds (buy in bulk and puree in food chopper yourself), dried fruit, or add more chocolate chips.
