But, I like the idea of homemade energy bars. And I found a good base in this recipe. It might be a little sweet for me to actually eat after runs, so I might use a little less honey, but it is so versatile and could have any nuts or fruits throw into it! It tastes like no bake cookies without chocolate.
1/2 cup Peanut Butter
1/2 cup Honey
1 1/2 cup Quick Oats
In a sauce pan, heat the peanut butter and honey until it is well incorporated and a little runny. Then add in the oats and stir. Heat them just long enough to incorporate everything. Not to cook it. Pour into a loaf pan lined with parchment paper and let cool.
They come out very sticky and chewy, but nonetheless delicious. (and cheap!).I wrapped them in parchment paper and then put them in a ziploc bag to make them easier to handle on the go.
