more yummie stuff from another chick

this one would travel well since it is a bar recipe

Peanut Butter Bars

In a large bowl, stir together ½ Cup Brown Sugar, ¼ Cup Peanut Butter (sugarless), ¼ Cup milk, ¼ Cup molasses or honey, 2 T canola oil and 1 tsp vanilla.

In a small bowl, stir together ¾ Cup whole wheat flour, ¾ Cup oats, ½ tsp baking soda and pinch of salt.

Add the oat mixture to the peanut butter mixture along with ½ Cup raisins or sour cherries, ½ Cup chocolate chips, ¼ Cup almonds, ¼ Cup sunflower seeds (unsalted) and 2 T ground flax seed. Stir till well blended. I used a kitchen aid mixer for this as it is hard to do by hand.

Spread batter into a 9 X 13 inch pan that has been sprayed with non-stick spray. The mixture will be sticky, you might get better results using your hands dampened with water.

Bake 20 to 25 minutes at 350 degrees until golden brown. Cool and cut into bars. Makes 18 bars. Narrow shapes fit into snack bags.

Try changing up some of the ingredients, examples.. raisins, dried sour cherries, dried cranberries, pumpkin seeds, soy milk, etc.
