Date Bars

These bite sized health bars are a great 'perk me up' bars! Love to snack on them when Im on the go!

I thought of these bars once  when I was out in the wholesale market and looked for something to nibble on  which was not loaded with those little devils called calories!! I couldnt find anything beyond potato chips and such like oily unhealthy snacks!

These bars have natural source of sweetness from dates and provide essential minerals which give instant energy and you can carry on with your shopping!!
