Want To Find/create Recipe

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I'm addicted to an energy bar baked fresh by a local organic grocer/bakery. I don't think they would share their recipe, but I pay $6.99 per pound. :o So I buy the smallest 'bar' and divide them into tiny pieces. Yet the ingredients don't seem that difficult to combine. I'm just not sure of the proportions. They contain: cashew butter, sesame seeds (toasted), rice bran, chopped date pieces and maple syrup. I have ALL those ingredients in my pantry. I'm thinking that the cashew butter, rice bran and maple syrup are the 'base' to which I can add other seeds, nuts and finely diced dates or other dried fruit. Maybe I can even substitute another nut butter. DOES ANYONE HAVE A RECIPE FOR ANY BAKED OR UNBAKED NUT BUTTER BAR WHICH CONTAINS SIMILAR INGREDIENTS? I sure would like to make or bake my own variety of those sesame/cashew butter energy bars to save money, if not calories. :lol:

I'm not sure if this is exactly what you're after, but I had a go at making my own 'raw' (unbaked) 'Organic Food Bar' (like the ones on sale under than very name). I just bought most of the same ingredients and had a go at it! Here's what I used:

1 cup almond butter

1.5 cups flax seed meal

1/4 cup cocoa

1/2 cup agave nectar

125g (one small tub) blueberries

1/4 cup water

I then just mixed everything together really well, laid it on a foil-lined tray and stuck it in the fridge. The texture was a bit messy, but it tasted GREAT - incredibly similar to the organic food bar (although they are more chewy and these were softer).

Anyway, I suppose if you just mix the ingredients together and let them 'set' you should do alright. :)

Thanks. That was gutsy, yet gooey ... but I LIKE gooey! :P I considered just trying the ingredients in small batches until I got the right proportions for the desired texture and taste. Thanks for giving me an idea of how much nut butter, how much sweetner, how much grain (I'd use rice bran rather than flax meal) and how much of the other ingredients. Has anyone else seen a baked energy bar recipe or even an unbaked recipe for anything else similar to my nut butter, seeds, date pieces, maple syrup ingredients?
