I had lots of wheat bran on hand, so decided to make a bran bar using that. Energy bars are great because they can be had a breakfast along with a glass of milk or as a snack whenever hunger strikes. This one is very chocolaty and taste really delicious.
I used oatmeal and wheat bran in this bar and it is packed with nutrients. You can add any nuts as you like as well.
Hope you will give this a try and let me know how it turns out for you..
