Microwave Energy Bars

these are delicious and adaptable, I have used almond butter and honey instead of the peanut butter and corn syrup and had good results. they were just softer, so maybe cut the honey back a bit, or add more granola!

How to Make Microwave Energy Bars


  1. Place syrup in a large bowl and microwave for 1 minute. add peanut butter, blend and microwave again another minute or until all melty and blended.
  2. In another bowl, blend all the dry ingredients together, add to the hot syrup mix.
  3. Press into a greased 9x13 pan, cover and chill. Cut into bars of desired size. I wrap mine individually so they are easy to grab and go. They freeze very well.
