These boys are eating me out of house and home. I’m having a hard time keeping up, frankly. Mornings are especially tough. By the time we’ve got lunches in backpacks, shoes on and I’m pulling the door closed behind us, someone is hungry. Again. Still. I dug up these bars from the archives of the dearly departed Whole Living Magazine and adapted the recipe accordingly. (Sidebar rant – why do all my favorite magazines go to the graveyard anyway? Anyone remember Cookie? What about Gourmet?). These wholesome bars are great for breakfast on the go – or a second breakfast if you’re a growing elementary schooler – or an afternoon snack. I’d put them in the lunch box if the school weren’t nut free.

What a great tip for measuring honey!
These sound great, but I’m not a huge fan of dates. Any suggestions for substitutes?
I’ve never been big on dates but I bought some to sweeten smoothies (adds a little fiber, too). I didn’t mind them in these bars. If you’re looking for a substitute, try chopped dried apricots or prunes.
I also loved Cookie and Wondertime. I didn’t know WL was out of print, but I’m now glad a have a few issues squirreled away!
Can’t wait to try these bars!
Wondertime? I didn’t even know about that one! I have saved all my WLs. Good thing a lot of the content is still online. I still have a little stack of Cookie Mags, too.
