I have used this recipe as a demonstration in my high school Sports Nutrition class and they love it!! I really enjoy giving my students easy, healthy alternatives that are less expensive than the ones found in stores. Keep up the good work!!
Peanut Energy Bars
From EatingWell: July/August 2008
This carbohydrate-rich bar, full of nuts, seeds, fruit and oats, was adapted from Amy Harrison's prize-winning submission in the Plains (Georgia) Peanut Festival recipe competition sponsored by The Peanut Institute. It includes a little protein, and is a great grab-and-go pre-workout snack on mornings when you don't have time to digest a full meal.

It wasn't bad. I have to say I do not like dried fruit so I removed it. It wasn't too bad. Not something I would eat every day but hey in a pinch and need a little protein, it was great. By removing the dried fruit I also cut out some of the carbs and sugar. I did up the peanut butter and nuts a bit. I will definitely try adding a bit of protein powder to my next batch.
Great recipe! I've made it many times. It's a quick breakfast or snack. YUM!
These bars are great. It is an easy switched, flexible recipe. I just added 3/4 cup of peanut butter.
To boost the protein, I added 2 scoops of chocolate protein powder dry ingredients. Nice chocolate flavor and helped balance out the carbs.
