Energy bars, chocolate, wheat free [vegan]

Yield: 6 Servings

Measure Ingredient
⅓ cup Brown rice syrup
3 tablespoons Brown sugar; packed
⅓ cup Prunes
2 tablespoons Cashews
3 tablespoons Protein powder; soy, no wheat, dairy or egg
1 cup Rolled oats; plus 2 tablespoons rolled oats
⅓ cup Oat bran
3 tablespoons Cocoa
¼ cup Coffee; cold, (you can substitute another liquid)

Combine all ingredients (except coffee) in cusinart and blend until it makes a nearly smooth paste. Add coffee/liquid until the paste thins out and is the consistency of a thick spread.

Spread in 8"x 8" or 9"x9" pan or drop onto cookie sheet and form into the "cliff" bar shape. Bake at 350 for 15-20 minutes. Let cool completely before eating.

You can vary the ingredients for different flavors--use other sugars instead of maple syrup, use jam instead of the prunes, use different nuts (like peanut, almond, hazlenut, etc.) Omit the coffee and use soy milk, water, or fruit juice.

They pack very well and are great for hiking or cycling.
