Energy bars, chocolate [vegan]

Yield: 6 Servings

Measure Ingredient
⅓ cup Corn syrup
3 tablespoons Brown sugar; packed
⅓ cup Dates
2 tablespoons Almonds; blanched
1 tablespoon Flour; vital gluten
1 cup Rolled oats
⅓ cup Oat bran
3 tablespoons Cocoa
¼ cup Coffee; cold

Combine all ingredients (except coffee) in cusinart and blend until it makes a nearly smooth paste. Add coffee in 1 tablespoon increments until the paste thins out and is the consistency of a thick spread.

Bake in 8"x8" or 9"x9" pan at 350 for 15 minutes.

You can vary the ingredients for different flavors--use other sugars instead of corn syrup, use jam instead of the raisins, use different nuts if you don't want the pronounced flavor of peanut (like cashew, almond, hazlenut, etc.)

Ideas: cashews/cocoa instead of vital gluten flour replace dates with: applesauce, banana, or raspberry jam It's easy to get hooked on these! 205 calories per 1/6th recipe/per bar fat: 3.3g sat. fat: .6g cholesterol: 0 carbohydrate: 43.3g dietary fiber:4.1g protein: 6.4g sodium: 28mg Percentages based on a 2000 kcal daily diet: A: 0% C: 0% Calcium: 3% Iron: 9%
