I found these at the Mr. Food site. My friends says they really are called Get Up and Go Bars because with all the fiber, you really will have to get up and run! Especially if you have one of these bars with your first morning cup of coffee!
Ain't nothing like the real thing... no artificial junk in these energy-boosting treats. Kids will like them- and so will you! You can also experiment with using other nuts or even adding some chocolate chips or using flaxseeds to replace some of the sesame seeds... endless possiblilites!
Tasty snack from Cooking Light that provides a concentrated source of carbohydrates from the raisins, along with protein and "good" fats from the nuts. Feel free to substitute nuts and fruit according to your preference, or what you have on hand. I don't care for raisins, so I used craisins (dried cranberries) ; I found I was out of slivered almonds, so I substituted some chopped macadamias. I especially loved the addition of cardamom--added an unexpected element.
This is a great after-school snack or healthy treat for kids of all ages. The barley malt syrup gives it a very unique flavor, plus you can use any kind of nut or nut butter that you and your family like! Super-easy to make, so your kids can help too. These are best after they have sat for a couple of hours to let the oats soften up a bit. Enjoy!
This recipe was inspired by the Super Energy Bars made by the coffee roastery down the street - they're my absolute favorite for a work-day pick me up! This is the 2nd version... it's a recipe in progress. The original used oatmeal instead of flour and no applesauce - it was tasty, but more like granola than bars. I'll keep adjusting and updating the recipe!
this recipe went over really well with all the girls that i work with at the office. they have nicked named me "megan the vegan" because everything i make and bring to them is, well, vegan lol. i doubled the recipe so it made 24 muffins and they were all gone by lunch time.
