Nutritional values

This homemade bar is an ideal snack between main meals and satisfies the desire for sweets. Cereals, almonds, and dried fruits contain a lot of intestine-healthy fibre which keeps  digestion functioning properly.

If you have to pay attention to the cholesterol content, replace the butter with high-quality vegetable margarine.
