Energy bars sweetened with raisins

Energy bars, sweetened with raisinsWhy shell out a lot of dough (ha, ha) on expensive snack bars – that also contains a lot of sugar and additives? Make your own and sweeten them with dried fruit.
These energy bars are sugar free; the raisins are used for sweetening. At less than 100 calories they are a good snack to have in your bag or when you just need to get “something” in your growling belly without getting stuffed.
You can keep the bars in the freezer and take them out when you need a snack, or have in your bag to use for refilling your energy after training.
20 mini bars. Cooking time: 30 minutes, 5 minutes mixing, 20 minutes baking and 5 minutes cutting.
