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.
- 1⁄2 cup honey
- 1⁄2 cup mini chocolate chip
- 1⁄4 cup puffed millet
- 1⁄2 cup wheat germ
- 1⁄2 cup Puffed Kashi
- 1 cup oatmeal
- 1 cup natural-style peanut butter
- 1 cup raisins or 1 cup craisins
- Mix everything but the raisins and chocolate chips together. Use a food processor if you can because it makes it a lot easier.
- Then add in the chocolate chips and raisins.
- Form into bars and refrigerate for about an hour allowing them to harden.
- I suppose you could freeze them and eat as needed, but they never last that long around here.
- 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.
excellent. thank you. i subbed about half the honey with ripe mashed cooked banana and a touch of molasses. i subbed puffed rice for the millet. and halved the raisins. just what i was looking for.:)
yummy yummy yummy! so happy i came across this recipe, thank you! I didn't have puffed Kashi unfortunatly so had to use Rice Krispies * sigh, and used whole millet (cooked) but it turned out wonderful! I will be buying puffed Kashi and am super excited to have a healthy snack for hikes and preschool!!!!
I loved this recipe. My husband is always on the go and this is great for him to grab in the morning. Also, a healthy way to start out the day. I used two other types of Kashi cereal because I did not have the puffed Kashi or puffed millet on hand. Then I used a little less peanut butter and honey. I also added some sunflower seeds. Then, I packed it down firmly in my bread pan. I let it set in the fridge then cut into bars. Put the bars in baggies and kept in the fridge so we could grab them on the go. Thanks for the recipe. I now make these weekly. Also, great for a healthful snack.
