Peanut Energy Bars

Great if you need breakfast or a snack on the run.



  1. Coat 9 x 13" baking pan with cooking spray.
  2. Combine peanuts, sunflower seeds (or other nuts), raisins (or other dried fruit), oats, rice cereal, and wheat germ in a large bowl.
  3. Combine peanut butter, brown sugar and corn syrup (or honey) in a large microwavable bowl; microwave on high until bubbly, 1 to 2 minutes.
  4. Add vanilla and stir until blended. Pour the peanut butter mixture over the dry ingredients and stir until coated.
  5. Transfer mixture to the prepared pan. Press down firmly (coat your fingers with cooking spray, if needed).
