Björn’s Date Bar Treats

Björn’s Date Bar Treats
If you are looking for a simple yet delicious pre-workout snack, my no bake date bar treats are just the thing. In Iceland we call them Döðlugott, which roughly translates into date treats. This is a mix of dates, crispy rice cereal, brown sugar, and butter + just björn marine collagen for protein. My kids go crazy when I make these!
