Energy Bar

Here’s a delicious power bar that really gives energy. The eggs and nuts make it protein rich and the other quality ingredients provide flavor, nutrients and satisfaction.

Makes eight, 3 1/2 x 1 1/2-inch bars

4 tablespoons unsalted butter, plus more for greasing the pan
1 cup raisins
1/4 cup apple juice, milk or water
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
2 1/4 cups oat, rye or quinoa flakes
1 cup chopped nuts
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
2 eggs, lightly whisked
1/3 cup honey

Preheat the oven to 350° F. Lightly butter or line an 8 x 8-inch pan with parchment paper.

Place the raisins in a small bowl and stir in apple juice or other liquid and vanilla. Set aside for 20 minutes for the raisins to plump.

Melt the butter in a large sauté pan over medium heat. Add the flakes and nuts and sauté, stirring constantly, for 3 to 4 minutes, or until aromatic and a shade darker. Stir in the cinnamon and salt and sauté for an additional minute. Pour into a large bowl.

Stir the eggs and honey into the raisin mixture. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry and stir until uniformly blended.

Spread the mixture into the prepared pan and bake for 30 minutes, or until golden and pulling away from the pan’s edge. Invert onto a rack to cool them. Cut into bars. The energy bars will keep for several weeks.

May you be well nourished,

  1. Wondering if these would keep longer frozen? I’m thinking of wrapping them individually and sealing them all in a large zippered freezer bag for quick on-the-go breakfast, lunch addition or snack during school and sport seasons.
