Number of Servings: 12


    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)


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


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
