How to make it

  • Preparation: In a double boiler, warm the peanut butter and honey to a smooth consistency. This step can be done in the microwave as well--just heat both ingredients for 70 to 90 seconds. In a mixing bowl, stir together all remaining dry ingredients. Pour in the peanut-butter mixture and stir until completely combined. Spread uniformly into a brownie pan. Slice into 12 to 16 pieces, and then wrap each piece in plastic wrap.
  • Each Granola Nut Protein Bar costs 25 to 35 cents to make, as opposed to 99 cents and up for store-bought energy bars. On top of that, if you do use organic ingredients, you won't believe the difference!
  • Nutritional information:
  • 200 calories per bar 9 grams fat 3 to 4 grams fiber 15 grams protein 26 grams carbohydrates
  • These bars are definitely not low-fat (they have four times as much fat as a Power Bar), so you may want to reserve them for when you're working out hard.

    Hey, I just wanted to let you know...the fat in these bars are NON-saturated fat (except maybe a little from the Peanut Butter), which can be easily remedied by using low-fat peanut butter. Saturated fat ONLY comes from animal products, so the vast majority of the fat is going to be heart-healthy monunsaturated fats from the nuts. Also, if you used a reduced fat honey, it would be even better..and because fructose(fruit sugar) is the sweetest of all sugars, you don't need to add any extras. Also, adding cinnamon is BRILLIANT!! This sounds like a great recipe!! I can't wait to try it.
