Whole Grain Energy Bar

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by ewoolridge

A friend of mine gave me an energy bar from Harvest Bread Company. It tasted great, but it was also $2. I didn't want to pay that kind of money so I kept playing around with the ingredients until I came up with something similar.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 12 cup honey
  • 12 cup mini chocolate chip
  • 14 cup puffed millet
  • 12 cup wheat germ
  • 12 cup Puffed Kashi
  • 1 cup oatmeal
  • 1 cup natural-style peanut butter
  • 1 cup raisins or 1 cup craisins


  1. Mix everything but the raisins and chocolate chips together. Use a food processor if you can because it makes it a lot easier.
  2. Then add in the chocolate chips and raisins.
  3. Form into bars and refrigerate for about an hour allowing them to harden.
  4. I suppose you could freeze them and eat as needed, but they never last that long around here.
  5. You can also increase the honey if you want something a little sweeter. I try to cut back on my sugar as much as I can in my food.
