Watch out Clif Bar because these energy bars ROCK! Yes, I purchased the seasonal Clif Bars. I couldn’t resist. I actually love everything about seasonal foods this time of year. Bring on the pumkpin, spiced, gingerbread everything. I love it all. Naturally I thought why not make my own.

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Combine cereal, flour, wheat germ, walnuts, apricots, seeds, raisins, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, and salt in food processor. Blend until cereal is fairly crumbly/almost a flour. Raisins and apricot should still be somewhat formed. In a separate medium-large bowl combine pumpkin puree, maple syrup, orange juice, and almond butter. Add dry mixture to wet ingredients and stir until well blended.
  2. Form medium ball and shape mixture into about a 1.25″ x 3-3.5″ rectangle bar. Place bars on non-stick cookie sheet and place in oven. Bake for 9-10 minutes. Remove from pan and cool completely. Store in an air tight container.
