Energy Chews

Submitted by: THROG1133

Introduction

Great boost for long endurance workouts sessions. This is very easy to make and my kids love it too. I'm very careful about what I eat and this is great to satisfy a sweet tooth. I found this recipe in Lava Magazine, I think. Great boost for long endurance workouts sessions. This is very easy to make and my kids love it too.

Ingredients

    Ingredients

    1/2 cup honey
    3/4 cup Peanut Butter
    2 Tbsp maple syrup
    1 Tbsp canola oil
    1/4 cup light brown sugar
    1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
    1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    2 cups mixed oat grains (or rolled oats)
    2 cups crisp brown rice cereal
    1/4 cup ground flax seeds
    1/2 cup pumpkin seeds
    1/2 cup chopped dried cranberries
    1/4 cup tart dried cherries
    1/4 cup of dark chocolate cut into small chunks
    1/2 teaspoon kosher salt

Directions

Preparation
Spray a small cookie sheet (with sides) with cooking spray and set aside.

In a small saucepan, over medium heat combine first 6 ingredients. Stir and cook until mixture almost bubbles- about 3 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla extract.

In a large bowl, combine last 8 ingredients.

Pour Peanut Butter mixture over oatmeal mixture and stir gently with a spatula until well combined. Transfer to cookie sheet, cover with parchment paper and press firmly into cookie sheet. Allow to cool completely (will cool faster in the refrigerator). Cut into squares and store in air-tight container in your refrigerator.
