Looks good! I might have to try it.

I walked into a stand up in Italy one morning and ordered a latte. 

The lady asked "Caldo?".  "Si" I replied. 

I got a cup of warm milk.

 Never hurts to try a new bar. This came from a thru hiker on the PCT

Yum!

Here's my updated version, with more chocolate, nuts, and cream for about 300 calories per bar if divided into 20 bars (but next time I might go for a square brownie format). I use weight instead of volume except for vanilla and salt, so I may not have updated some of the volumes. Still only about 4.1 cal/g because they are a little moist.

 Enjoy!

Although i am not a fan of chocolate in my bars,  you had me at adding coffee :)   Just went to the market last night and picked myself up a bag of walnuts and looking forward to trying out this recipe :)  Might add dried cranberries instead of the choc chips  less you have  a better suggestion as I am just winging it.
