This Recipe comes to you from my mother, Sally Hobbs, cookbook. As a child my mother made these delicious bars which were gobbled up with breakneck speed. This is a very quick and tasty energy bar to make, made with simple ingredients. This tasty treat has wonderful texture and a bonus – healthy to eat!
1 package (6 oz.) of semi sweet chocolate chips
2 Tablespoons of smooth or chunky peanut butter (add more if you would like)
3/4 cup of wheat germ
3/4 cup quick or old-fashioned oats (uncooked)
1/2 cup flaked coconut
1/2 cup finely chopped dates
In a large saucepan, over low heat, melt together chocolate pieces and peanut butter.
Stir in wheat germ, oats, coconut and dates, mixing well.
Shape quickly with buttered hands into 8 bars, each about 3″ long. Wrap each bar in plastic and refrigerate until firm.
Makes 8 bars.
Let me know what you think of this bicycle bar recipe when you make them!
Happy, healthy eating! – Beth
