I’ve experimented with several different kinds of homemade energy bar recipes, but these are the only ones worthy of offering to others. They’re basically a mix of cereal/fruit/nut stuck together with nut butter and rice syrup. I started with this recipe from The Vegan Delicious blog. You might be able to skip the baking step, but it helps the bars hold together.

  • 1/2 c. almond butter
  • 1/2 c. rice syrup
  • 1/2 c. Perky’s Nutty Flax Cereal
  • 1/2 c. puffed millet
  • 1/3 c. toasted pecans
  • 1/3 c. dried blueberries
  • 1/4 c. dried cherries
  • 1/3 c. raisins
  • 1/3 c. chopped dates
  • 1/3 c. chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease 9×13 or 8×8 baking pan with coconut oil. Pan size doesn’t really matter. You’ll have thicker bars with a smaller pan. Mix almond butter and rice syrup. Add cereal and coat well. Add remaining ingredients and mix well. Use a metal spatula to press mixture into pan. Bake for 5-10 min. Remove from oven and use spatula to further compress bars. Press the mixture into the pan well. Otherwise you’ll have crumbles instead of bars. Allow to cool and cut.
