This recipe for chocolate peanut butter energy bars is perfect for people like myself who wish there was an easy way to get a caffeine-free energy boost. Despite its stimulating effects, caffeine isn't very good for you, which is why you might want to look into this recipe if you want to move beyond the coffee and energy drink scene.
To make this chocolate peanut butter energy bar, start by whisking together flour, baking soda and cinnamon. Then, beat brown sugar and peanut butter in a large bowl, before beating in eggs, oil and vanilla. Then stir this into the flour mixture and add barley, cranberries, peanuts and chocolate chips.
Spread this mixture evenly in a pan bake for 20 to 25 minutes until lightly browned.
The end result is an energy bar that is absolutely delicious but also good for you. Who said the two things had to be mutually exclusive?
