Very yummy! I have made peanut butter honey no-bake treats before, but these are better than some of the ones I made in the past. The vanilla really adds a nice touch. I combined all ingredients in the food processor, and only used 1/2 c. of powdered milk. The sunflower seeds I used were salted which I thought added a nice contrast to the sweet honey. I mixed the chocolate chips in by hand. Update: They are wonderful rolled into balls and then rolled in coconut.

Very nice, i made it into balls and forgot to put the vanilla but it was still nice. I would like to try this with some cocoa powder also. Great to find such a healthy dessert recipe. I made my own peanut butter also, by processing 2 cups of roasted peanuts and 2 teaspoons of peanut oil together.

What a great recipe! These homemade bars are better tasting, less expensive, and probably much healthier, than store-bought energy bars. I made them as posted, with chocolate chips on top, and my DH and I loved (!!) them. This recipe is a keeper, for sure! Thanks for sharing, littleturtle!
