Candy bars

My hubby is about to embark upon a mammoth cycle challenge and these are going to be his energy provider as he pedals along.  Energy aside, we absolutely LOVE the taste of these little bars.  Whenever we’re going on holiday I always make a nice big batch to have as our sweet treat and to keep us away from bars of chocolates and the likes.  They are a tad naughty because of the dates and maple syrup so I cut them into smaller bite size pieces (or course that does mean you can have 2 at once if you’ve earned it!).
