Trail-tested power and energy bars. These granola-style bars are my mix and mod of a couple of recipes, mostly Amy E's "Bird Seed Energy Bars" ... they made it 6 days from Mammoth to Yosemite Valley.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease a 9x14-inch baking pan.

  • Mix rolled oats, whole wheat flour, cereal, brown sugar, and cinnamon together in a large bowl.

  • Whisk banana, eggs, oil, applesauce, maple syrup, honey, vanilla extract, and salt together in a separate bowl until evenly blended. Stir into the oat mixture. Stir in flax seeds, sesame seeds, sunflower seeds, chocolate chips, banana chips, walnuts, almonds, and peanut butter.

  • Use your hands to mix the ingredients, and press into the prepared pan.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until edges are golden brown, 20 to 25 minutes. Cool completely in the pan, about 30 minutes. Cut into 2-inch bars.

Cook's Notes:

You can use chopped multi-grain bran flakes instead of wheat and barley cereal.

Use canola oil instead of vegetable oil if desired.
