Recipe by admin Course: Breakfast, Snack
Cooking time



Recently taken on a trip to Baxter State Park by our CEO Amber and family for a quick, nutritious energy bar while hiking – wrapped in parchment, which is later added to the campfire!
Bars must be refrigerated for at least 4 hours before eating.


  • 2 cups 2 Maine Grains Organic Rolled Oats

  • 1⁄4 cup 1⁄4 sesame seeds

  • 1⁄4 cup 1⁄4 peanuts or pumpkin seeds, or a combination

  • 1 1⁄2 cups 1 1⁄2 of chopped dried apricots – or other dried fruit of choice

  • 1 cup 1 raisins or currants

  • 1⁄2 cup 1⁄2 wheat germ – ground flax can be substituted

  • 1⁄2 cup 1⁄2 protein powder of choice – soy protein or milk powder

  • 1 tsp 1 butter or oil

  • 3⁄4 cup 3⁄4 of honey or maple syrup or a combination

  • 1⁄2 cup 1⁄2 of natural peanut butter – sesame tahini can be substituted

  • 1 tsp 1 of cinnamon


  • Preheat oven to 350ºF and grease a 9×13″ pan.
  • Toast the first three ingredients in the prepared pan in the oven for about 8 minutes, stirring halfway through – do not let it get brown.
  • Move mixture to a large mixing bowl. Add the dried fruit, raisins, wheat germ and protein powder and mix throughly.
  • In a saucepan over medium heat, melt the butter or oil and add the syrup (or honey) stirring till bubbly.
  • Mix in the last two ingredients. The liquid mixture hardens quickly upon cooling so the next steps should be done in quick succession!
  • Pour the contents from the saucepan over the dry ingredients in the bowl, quickly mix together and transfer back to the greased pan. Pat mixture down and mold to fit the pan.
  • Refrigerate for at least four hours.
  • Cut into bars and wrap in wax or parchment paper.
  • Store in the fridge. Yum!
