puffed rice. Corn syrup. No thanks.
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.
24 Reviews for Peanut Energy Bars
i read reviews and put over a cup of peanut butter but I really should have halfed the oatmeal and rice krispies as well. they taste good in small quantity as long as you have a large glass of water/milk with you. its extreamely dry and crumbly. its okay for the family(the boys eat anything) but I would never take the recipe to anyone
Good flavor with just the right amount of sweetness. I like that there's room for substitutions (nuts, dried fruits) to change things up every time you make these. I made sure to really push the mixture down into the pan after reading some of the reviews, but the bottom was pretty crumbly. Next time I plan to use more peanut butter!
I added chocolate chips to the warm honey mixture so they melted. They were more like chocolate peanut bars. I didn't have any crumbling issues so that must have helped.
I was disappointed when I made this. I should have read the previous reviews first. The bars did not stay together and I thought they were a bit bland and too sweet. I used corn syrup. Maybe if you use more peanut butter, less corn syrup (or honey instead) and add some semi-sweet chocolate chips or something, they would be better. I'm going to try using what I made as a granola with plain yogurt.
