So after last week’s granola recipe, I’m sure you’ve been waiting by your computer for this one. You won’t be sorry, this is a good recipe.
When the kids were all little I needed a way to feed them something quick and affordable in the car. I hated the Goldfish crumbs and petrified french fries I’d find on the floor in the back of my super cool mini-van. So I messed around with recipes and finally came up with this, which everybody loves!
Now I want to say up front, it has sugar in it, so I’m not claiming them as healthy. But you have control over the amounts and it’s something worth playing around with if you need good snacks for the kids.
Lisa’s Energy Bars
1/2 C packed brown sugar
1/2 C corn syrup
1/2 C peanut butter
3 1/2 C granola
1/2 C peanuts
In a saucepan, bring the brown sugar and corn syrup to a boil, stirring constantly. Remove from heat and add the peanut butter, stirring until blended. Add granola and peanuts and stir to coat. Press into a buttered 9″ square pan and allow to cool. Cut into bars. Store in an airtight container for up to 7 days.
That’s it…easy easy easy. And it’s great to take for an addition to a meal you take to a sick friend or recently had a baby. These are perfect for breakfast, snack or lunch.
