I love a good breakfast bar, but a good quality organic variety from the store is usually quite pricey per piece and is commonly still loaded with sugar. Although I love my sweets, I much prefer bars that are not too sweet at all, especially for breakfast. Besides, refined sugar is terrible for you. I made a batch of these simple, not-too-sweet bars by Jae Steele, holistic nutritionist, vegan cook and author, from her book Get It Ripe. I changed the recipe ever so slightly, only because I wanted to use what I had in the pantry, and I was missing some other ingredients. These bars are vegan, nightshade free, nut free, and sugar free, which is just an added plus aside from the tastiness.
