There are quite many healthy bars available in market today but the downside is you can never be sure of the hidden calories in them so the best way to eat healthy is do it yourself. These are simple to prepare and requires least efforts, further you are ensured you are eating something good and nutritious

These delicious and healthy bars are perfect for both kids and adults. I have used mix of wheat and buckwheat flour to make it nutritious. This recipe was inspired from the net. You can use Maida (All purpose flour) as per original recipe, I prefer it to be healthy hence I have modified the original recipe to make it as nutritious as possible

You can play around with the ingredients to suit the taste and make it as healthy as possible. So next time before you reach out to those “healthy bars” in store, do try this recipe and I am sure you will never go to stores to buy the bars again
