Homemade energy bundles

Healthy snacks for when you are out and about

The supermarket is full of bars, gels and other power foods for when you are out and about. Can you also make a homemade alternative?

In addition to the completely natural classics such as apples & bananas, well-assorted supermarkets offer a vast selection of bars & co for when you're out and about. It's hard to choose: conventional muesli bar or high-tech power food bar? Lots of protein, little sugar, low fat, no fat, vegan, with sweeteners and extra energy?
