READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by Blanket Girl

This recipe says it's by the American Running Association. I'm putting it here so I don't lose it, because I've been wanting to give something like this a try.

Definitely a sneaky way to get someone to eat oat bran, wheat germ and protein powder...camouflaged by the peanut butter and chocolate chips. The 25 servings is unrealistic - *maybe* 16 bars at the most, so this is quite a bit of fat and sugar, more like a dessert and there are probably better energy bars out there. I used dried pineapple and extra dark bittersweet chips; if I had to make them again I would cut the chips entirely or use half a cup of mini chips but for kids or marathon runners the recipe might work as it is.
