my aunt's energy bar

Submitted by: PHISHIE

Introduction

basically, this is a framework for homemade energy bar in a way. my hubby swears by them and can't eat more than 2 (and he's a big boy) because it's so filling. basically, this is a framework for homemade energy bar in a way. my hubby swears by them and can't eat more than 2 (and he's a big boy) because it's so filling.

Ingredients

    3 cups regular (not instant) oatmeal
    1 cup flour
    2 tablespoons of canola or any other vegetable oil
    1 heaping teaspoon of baking soda
    2 tablespoons of honey
    1 cup of dried cranberries
    1 cup of almonds, slightly chopped
    little bit of water or milk to thin the mixture if needed
    cinnamon, nutmeg--to taste

Directions

mix all ingredients; add water last--and see how much the mixture will take--should look moist, but not runny. Then, with your hands take a fistful of mixture and form them into little plump logs (about 2-2.5 inches long). Place them on a sheet pan and there they go into the oven at 350F. They are ready when they turn golden (about 20-22 minutes). Current calculation makes 14 bars

As i said, this is really not so much a recipe, but an idea. I've substituted eggs for eggwhites, almonds for peanuts or walnuts, cranberries for raisins or any other dried fruit, honey for apple butter, white flour for whole wheat flour. It all sorta works. Guess, the necessary part is oatmeal, baking powder and oil, and having a good mixture of fiber (oatmeal), protein/fat (nuts) and carbs (cranberries or raisins)
