Home Made Power Bar Recipe
I baked these at the Man Camp. Power Bars for Expeditions. I used a 10 x 15 inch sheet pan and cut them into 3.5 inch by five inches long for a total of 15 bars. Wrap in plastic, freeze until you need them.
1 cup brown sugar, packed tight
3/4 cup canola oil
2 cups raw oats
1 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1 cup raisins
1 cup coconut
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
Mix together in order given. Press into a lightly greased sheet pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 17 minutes. They should be soft. Turn off the oven and make frosting by:
Immediately pour 4 cups of chocolate chips on top of bars. Drop six tablespoons of peanut butter onto chocolate chips. Return to oven for a few minutes until chocolate chips are soft.
Remove from oven, spread chips and peanut butter to form an even frosting. Let set until firm. Cut and wrap.
