Homemade Clif Bars

My husband's work is busy during the lunch hour. He either has to have lunch super early (10:30), or on the later side (1:30). I got some Clif Bars for him the first week of his job. After that I was on a search for a recipe to make my own. 
They are super easy to make! I know they don't cost over a $1 for 1 bar. 

I warmed up the peanut butter and the honey a bit to make it easier to stir. I did add Pumpkin Seeds, Chia Seeds and Mini Chocolate Chips to ours. You just stir everything together. The extras really are just extras. You don't have to add them, or you can. There is no baking required. If you are adding chocolate chips put them in last to give the honey and nut butter a chance to cool, so they don't melt. Put freezer paper down in a 9x9 pan, or make a double batch if you are using a 9x12 pan. Put the mixture in. I kept wetting my finger tips to help pat it down in the pan. The mixture is sticky like rice crispy treat would be. Set the pan in the refrigerator until they have cooled a bit. Cut them into bars, and eat. They ended up being really good. The great thing is that you can make them different each and every time. 

Mica, Travis and I all really liked them. Isaak's not a fan of any dried fruit, and wouldn't give them much of a chance.

I believe you are one of the most inventive people I know. I never heard of these things, and lots of the products and foods you blog about are completely unknown to me. I always enjoy coming here, because you either have interesting things about your family, or you have interesting things like this.

Jason buys those expensive Cliff bars. This would be so much more practical to make! Looks like a great recipe!

If I have snacks, I'd like to make my own also. That way I know exactly what goes into them
