“These are made with fruit juice concentrate instead of other sweeteners. They are not going to turn out like a commerical bar, but that is not what I am trying to make. I am really after a healthy snack to throw in my purse, something that travels well and is not too sweet. I am still tweaking this, so comments are appreciated.”
