This crunchy little energy bar uses one of my favorite snacks – popped sorghum! It’s like tiny popcorn, but easier on your digestive system. These are great for a snack or even for breakfast.
Get creative with your ingredients- any nuts and seeds will work. Get the kids involved by letting them ‘decorate the top’. I made one batch with pretzels – so fun.
Do add the flaky sea salt on the top – both popcorn and chocolate really come alive with salt.
