Peanut Butter Energy Bar

Peanut Butter Energy Bar

After trying a few variations on my original energy bar I think I've found an even better bar.  I changed the recipe from almond butter and almonds to peanut butter and peanuts.  I took out the chocolate chips and added both rice crispy cereal and cheerios.  They're quite rich, and after taking them on several rides, including a 10 hour mountain bike ride I can confidently say that they are my favorite trail food!  I hope you enjoy my peanut butter energy bar recipe. 


  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 stick of butter
  • 1/2 cup of honey
  • 2/3 cup peanut butter
  • 2 tsp Vanilla
  • 1 cup of dried fruit & berries
  • 1 cup of peanuts
  • 1 1/2 cups of dried oatmeal
  • 1 cup of Rice Crispy cereal
  • 1 cup of Cheerios cereal


Blend the butter and brown sugar until it's smooth. Add the honey, vanilla, and peanut butter and mix until it's well mixed. Add all the other ingredients, mix it together and put it into a 9x13 pan. Cook on 350 for 15-20 minutes until golden brown.  Enjoy your new homemade peanut butter energy bars!

      Made these today. Subbed out peanuts for chocolate chips and stuck with the peanutbutter. Used dried cherries as the fruit. They are phenomenal. Thanks for the recipe!

      Paul, if you're looking for something healthy, check out my quinoa recipes. :) These peanut butter bars are meant to be high energy snacks for hiking, biking, etc. I actually found them to be a bit richer than cliff bars and and more interesting due to the cheerios and dried fruit. They're worth trying!

      I'm not sure how healthy they're with peanut butter and sugar, but they sound delicious. Do they taste like peanut butter Cliff bars?
