Chocolate Peanut Butter Clif Bars

I love Clif Bars.   They are my absolute favorite source of fuel before long distance runs.  Considering how much those little babies cost, I took it upon myself to try and recreate them in my kitchen.

I used prunes as the binding ingredient in this Clif bar recipe. High in fiber and antioxidants.   I am also toying around with a different recipe using dates, but that will come later.
