Peanut Powered Recipes

Peanutty Energy Bars

  • 1/2 cup salted dry roasted peanuts
  • 1/2 cup roasted sunflower nuts (kernels)
  • 1/4 cup toasted wheat germ
  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • 2 cups rolled oats
  • 2 cups toasted rice cereal
  • 1/2 cup crunchy (or extra crunchy) peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup light corn syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

Mix together the first six ingredients in a medium bowl. Set aside. Combine peanut butter, brown sugar and corn syrup in a large bowl. Microwave on high for 2 minutes. Add vanilla and stir until blended. Add dry ingredients from medium bowl. Stir until coated. Spoon mixture into an 8-inch square pan coated with non-stick spray. Press down firmly (It helps to spray fingers with nonstick spray). Let stand about 1 hour. Cut into bars.

Yield: 16-20 bars
