    Got this from the library yesterday, made Morning Maple Bars in the afternoon, and had one at 6AM today next to St. Vrain Creek, 20 miles into a 42-mile ride. I'll be ordering a copy of my own today. While I'm not always a fan of the author's over-the-top perkiness in every recipe introduction, she knows her stuff. She uses the proper ingredients, pays attention to binding, and encourages experimentation.

That attitude, and the subject matter (which has not been well addressed by other books), make this a very useful book. If you find yourself tossing a box of granola bars, or Clif, or Luna, or Kashi bars into your cart when you got to Costco or Sam's Club...stop and spend less than the price of one box on this book and some ingredients instead.

    This book is awesome! Great variety for every taste and need - wonderful options and so nicely laid out. It's a great addition to any kitchen and won't be collecting dust on the shelf either. Meets all sorts of diet requirements and I don't think you would ever do the same bar twice if you didn't want to! This book is awesome!

    Love this book! It is nice to be able to step away from store bought energy bars (most of which are glorified candy bars). I do a lot of endurance sport, and it is nice to have such an easily accessible variety.

    Delightful. Forget store-bought granola and energy bars. Make some of these babies and as you munch you'll get this dreamy look in your eye. 'So this is what a real bar is supposed to taste like.' Long pause, then, 'Why on earth am I eating that other stuff, then?' Delightful. Forget store-bought granola and energy bars.

    I haven't actually tried any of the recipes in this book yet, but they all look so yummy. They have a recipe for cliff bar and Lara bar knockoffs that look out of this world!

    Having only recently started making bars, this is a fantastic find. The book covers most bar ingredients and combination and presents many many variation on a theme for each recipe. very worthwhile.

    A really good book full of tasty recipes. I like the clear instructions for each of the recipes. I also like that the author starts the book with a section that explains what all of the ingredients are and what role they accomplish in the final product. The recipes already include an options section to help you mix things up- but knowing what role everything serves gives you the extra knowledge to tweak the bars to make them perfectly suited to your own taste buds.

    Excellent focus on whole foods and no refined sugar. Easy to follow recipes. I do note a heavy reliance on "crisp rice cereal", however, which is no one's idea of a whole food. I have to wonder about this book, given her history "start with a box of cake mix" cookbooks. What changed? Why/when did she abandon cake mix and embrace whole foods?

    I tried only one recipe from here, the Black Bean High Protein Brownies, and immediately brought the book to Goodwill. The "brownies" were totally inedible, honestly the worst thing I have ever baked in my life. I scraped the whole pan into the garbage. To this day, three years later, my boyfriend and I are are still haunted by our single bite of these "brownies."

    Not only does this book include great power bar recipes (including knock offs of your favorite standbys), the author does a wonderful job describing and talking about the benefits and influence the ingredients have to the recipes and your person. Its a very interesting read, if only for the ingredient descriptions.

    I only had time to try the Banana Split Bars, but they're pretty great. They are full of quinoa, which is pretty hit or miss for me taste-wise, but I can't even tell that they're incorporated in the bars. I'm definitely putting myself on hold for this one again.

    An easy to follow recipe book for homemade energy bars! My favorite is the Lucy Bar (see page 48). It's VERY easy to make, gluten and dairy free! Another plus: The recipes are easily made gluten, dairy, soy free. Reviewed by: Jody An easy to follow recipe book for homemade energy bars! My favorite is the Lucy Bar (see page 48).

    Loved the wide variety of recipes! This cookbook takes every kind of eater into account: vegan, paleo, gluten-free, etc. I had never considered baking with protein powder, but from the recipes I tried, I will be more frequently now.

    Loved the recipes I tried from here. Not a lot of them are nut free, but enough are that it gave me some recipes to make for the girls to bring to school.

    well thought and researched, but probably not one I'll add to my cookbook library. We just don't eat enough of them to be worth the effort...... well thought and researched, but probably not one I'll add to my cookbook library. We just don't eat enough of them to be worth the effort......
