In this book Camilla not only provides simple but seriously tasty and healthy recipes (complete with nutrition breakdown) but she provides alternative suggestions and substitutions. You can create your own ideal energy bar for a fraction of what they cost in the stores.
This book is just as good as Enlightened Soups. There is a featured recipe, recipe tips, and then suggested variants. She presents one bar recipe, but then has a list of ways to alter it into completely different tasting bars. There's also a lot of flexibility in many of the recipes- you can choose from several grains or sweeteners or nuts. It's easy to stock your cupboard with a few basics and then flip through the book and find different combinations that use the ingredients you have on hand. Not a lot of weird ingredients are needed - some bars use protein powder and others use different types of seeds that might not be easily available at a local grocer. But most of the recipes contain ingredients you probably have or can easily find.
There are knockoffs of popular bars too, so if there is a style you like, you'll probably find it here. And then you can follow her suggestions to make more flavors, or invent your own.
This will save you money too. I made the equivalent of 3 boxes of granola/protein bars for under what I would have paid for one at a store. And it tastes better.
One word of warning- many of these recipes are assembled in a food processor, a medium to large sized one.
Edit: It's now March and I'm using this cookbook constantly. I make two batches of bars on the weekend for the rest of the week. Flavors have been good for every recipe. Consistency can still be an issue with some bars turning out too wet or too dry. I just make a note in the cookbook and increase or decrease liquids the next time, or immediately if I can tell it's needed. It is easy to make bars on a whim if you stock the kitchen with oats, nuts, dried fruits, and sweeteners. This cookbook is highly recommended.
My only complaint about the book is that the pages are already coming out. The binding could be better. Otherwise, I love the book, and I'm looking forward to trying more recipes.
