Thanks guys! Those are both great resources. Next time I'm in a baking mood, I'm definitely going to try those pumpkin bars out. Yum!
Unfortunately I work very long hours each week, and really need to find some store-bought solutions where I can. A friend of mine recommended You Bars www.youbars.com
. It's a company that lets you custom order energy/protein bars. They aren't cheap (about $50 for a box of 13 with shipping), but the ability to choose exactly what does (and doesn't) go into them, and the ability to have them as easily packaged as my husband's cliff bars may be worth it for occasional exercise-related needs. I'll report back once I get them!
