Blue Ribbon Recipe

Jewel's breakfast bar recipe is proof that "good for you" can be delicious, too. These bars are crunchy, chewy, and sweet, with a hint of peanut butter flavor. We would be happy campers if we could have one with a cup of coffee every morning... Talk about starting the day off on the right foot!

    In a Dutch oven, combine the dried apples, honey, raisins, and brown sugar; heat and stir until the mixture boils. Reduce the heat slightly and cook uncovered for one minute, stirring constantly; remove from the heat.
  • Stir in remaining ingredients.
    Stir in the peanut butter until melted. Stir in the apple butter and cinnamon. Stir in the rolled oats, walnuts/pecans, wheat germ, and sunflower seeds until well combined. Add the cereal, stirring to coat.
  • Ingredients pressed into a baking dish.
    Press the mixture evenly and very firmly (so the bars don't crumble) into an ungreased 8x8 pan; chill to set. Cut into 8 bars. Store in an airtight container for up to 2 days in the refrigerator. Great to take on hiking trails.
