In 1784, Benjamin Franklin wrote a letter to his friend David LeRoy concerning improvements for traveling by ship. In the letter he provided a list of recommended food items that passengers should carry with them, including almonds, chocolate, eggs, sugar, raisins, rum, and oat bread. I have taken the liberty of turning Franklin’s list of rations into succulent whole grain bars that are perfect for a meal replacement or an energy-packed snack bar.
The Benjamin Franklin Meal-Replacement Energy Bars were designed to provide all the whole grain and daily nutrition the body needs. You will lose weight if you eat four to six of these per day instead of meals and snacks. These bars are great if you’re on the go and need to have a meal on hand without thinking about it.
