1/2 cup dry roasted almonds, chopped
1/2 cup roasted sunflower seeds
1 cup raisins
2 oz dried cherries, chopped
2 cups rolled oats
2 cups bran cereal
1/2 cup creamy omega peanut butter
1/2 cup honey
1 tsp vanilla extract

Recipe Directions for Energy bars for running

  1. Coat a 9-by-13-inch baking pan with cooking spray. Combine peanuts, sunflower seeds (or other nuts), raisins (or other dried fruit), cherries, oats and rice cereal in a large bowl.

  2. In a second microwave-safe bowl, combine peanut butter, brown sugar and corn syrup; microwave on high until bubbling, one to two minutes. Add vanilla and stir until blended.
