The purpose of these bars is to provide a concentrated form of nutrition (specifically calories, carbohydrates, and protein) in a low weight, low volume package that’s easy to carry and stable across a wide range of temperature and moisture conditions. The overall cost is lower than most commercially available food bars, and the recipe is infinitely customizable, allowing you to create bars that suite your own palate and nutritional requirements.
Step 1: Tools and Ingredients
• Half cup measuring cup
• Food processor or cutting board and knife
• Jellyroll pan
• Grease for pan
• Protein Powder
• Glutinous Rice Flour (may have to hunt through local Asian grocery to find)
• Dried fruit (I used raisins)
• Nuts (I used walnuts)
• Peanut butter
• Sweetened condensed milk
Step 2: Prep and Mix Ingredients
Chop dried fruit and nuts. You want fairly small pieces so they spread more thoroughly through the bars
Mix a half cup of each ingredient into a large bowl and stir until everything is mixed evenly into a smooth batter.
Step 3: Baking
Spread batter on to a thoroughly greased jellyroll pan (I used vegetable oil) and bake for one hour. This baking time is for bars that have been spread out to 1 inch thick.
