POP Nutrition | Date & Fig Power Bar Crumble

Hi guys,

I really enjoy power bars, they satisfy my sweet tooth, and could be a great source of vitamins, minerals, protein, and healthy fat. The reason why I say could be is becasue even though a lot of power bars say natural and healthy many of them still have all those x-tras that we do not want in our bodies (sugar, salt, and preservatives). So here is my version of the POP power bar: Date & Fig Power Bar Crumble.
