    • Good Morning! Thank you for catching this difference. We originally included corn syrup. However, as we were making the recipe, we decided that honey was a better choice for both flavor and nutrition! We just updated the instructions to reflect this change! Thanks again and we hope you enjoy these energy bars as much as we did!
