Homemade Energy Bar Recipe

Just in time for the holidays, here's a killer recipe for some homemade energy bars, crafted by one of our volunteers -- they'll be sure to give you the fuel you need to power through a gnarly bike ride in the snow! (This guy just ate one ----->)

Peanut Cereal Butter Bars

1 cup peanut butter

1 cup corn syrup

1 cup sugar

4 cups Grape Nuts or Cheerios

¾ cups protein powder

Mix peanut butter, corn syrup and sugar. Microwave on high in two minute intervals until mixture boils. After the first two minutes stir every one minute. When mixture comes to a boil add cereal and gradually add powder. Make sure to mix well. Press mixture into a 9x13 inch greased (butter tastes best) pan. Cool. Cut. Place into individual plastic wrap or baggies (they get hard if the dry out). Yields 30+/- Enjoy!!!
