Energy Boosting Granola Bars that are also F***ing SCRUMPTIOUS
This past weekend, some members of the Thrive Tribe got together to embark on a 5 mile hike in Cold Springs, NY. The hike was a good mix of steep terrain and flat, and we knew it would require a LOT of energy. So, what better way to keep everyone’s energy levels up than with tasty granola bars?
These bars combine the delicious tastes of peanut butter, chocolate, and honey for a Reeses-like experience that fuels you with whole grains to keep your body moving. Give them a try!
