No Bake Peanut Butter Bars
I am an adult with cystic fibrosis. I am also lactose intolerant, so I needed to find a way to get the calories, fat and protein that I was getting from milk, from another source. I lost 10 pounds after I stopped drinking milk. I wanted to make something that I could take with me to the gym or on long hikes, so it had to be portable. I was eating energy bars, but they were expensive and I didn't like the taste, so I decided to make my own. I can cut them off as needed and take them with me to the gym or on long hikes, sometimes I eat them in the car if I don't have time for breakfast.
