    These breakfast bars look like just the thing you need when you are in a rush and have to have breakfast on the go. It’s so easy to get busy in the morning and forget about eating. Restaurants and commercially sold bars are so unhealthy too. Do you know how long these bars can be stored for?

    To store, wrap the bars individually in plastic or stack them in an airtight container for a week (that’s usually how long they last in our house). In humid weather, it’s best to store bars in the refrigerator because of the chocolate. Then bring them to room temp before serving. They also freeze well.
