Number of Servings: 12

Ingredients

    1 cup water (as needed)
    1/3 cup natural sweet syrup (maple and/or agave)
    2/3 cup peanut butter (smooth or chunky)
    2 2/3 cup rolled oats
    1 cup flour (whole wheat, spelt, etc.)
    1 tsp. cinnamon
    1/2 tsp nutmeg
    1/2 cup raw wheat germ

    Mix-in options, to equal 2 cups:

    1/2 cup raisins (or any other dried fruit)
    1/2 cup walnuts (or other or seeds)
    1/2 cup coconut
    6 TB protein powder (I use hemp, pea or soy)

Tips

These are great to take in the car and eat on the run.


Directions

Mix the syrup and peanut butter together in a large bowl. Mix the dry ingredients separately, then add them to the syrup mixture. Gradually add mix-ins and water (I use a cup). Mixture should be slightly sticky.

Pour into 9 x 13 Pyrex baking dish greased with coconut or other oil. Bake in 350 oven just until browned - about 12-15 minutes. Don't overcook!

Cut into 12 bars while still warm. Bars freeze well (I stick a few at a time in the freezer uncovered, then wrap the frozen bars individually in foil.

Serving Size: Makes 12 bars
