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!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. Mix all dry ingredients together.
  3. Add peanut butter, honey, and vanilla - mix well. (I used my mixer - it's pretty dense).
  4. Grease a 13x9 baking pan - spread mixture into pan (should be about an inch thick).
  5. Bake for 15-20 minutes.
  6. Cool and cut into squares. I'm going to refrigerate them (in the hopes they will hold together a little better).
  7. Enjoy -- yummy & healthy!

I was looking for something to take to school and work. My teen-angers & I really like these, they really hit the mark! I switched sesame seeds for sliced almonds, used corn syrup as I didn't have honey, and added sliced dried apricots instead of raisins (this time). These will become a staple in my house! Thank you :)

These are really good! Fast and easy to put together. I combined all the dry...and in a separate bowl, mixed all the wet ingredients and then combined them with a wooden spoon... finishing using my hand. Pressed them into the pan...and I didn't have any trouble with them holding together. Loved the fact that these are not sweet. Thank you for sharing this great recipe. Made for Spring PAC 2010.
