For my engineering class at Centaurus High School, I had to enter an instructables challenge. I wanted something that could be finished quickly and didn't require spending a lot of money on materials, so I chose copycat recipes. I eat clif bars every day, and I often wish that more flavors were available, so I researched clif bar recipes and put this together based on other recipes. This recipe makes around thirty bars.
Step 1: Gather the Ingredients and Materials
- Peanut butter (or nutella for chocolate flavor - also recommended if using fruit)
- Cocoa powder (if you're using peanut butter but want chocolate flavor)
- Fruit (optional)
- Blender or food processor (if using large fruit)
- Wax paper
- Cookie sheet
Step 2: Prepare the Fruit
If you're using large fruit, put it in a food processor or a blender. If you're using smaller fruit like I did, skip this step because the blender will just toss around the fruit.
Step 3: Mix the Ingredients.
1 cup peanut butter or nutella
1 cup oats
1 cup honey
1/4 cup cocoa powder (optional)
Mix in a large bowl and spread on a cookie sheet.
Step 4: Freeze and Serve.
Freeze, cut, and serve. Best if eaten soon after being removed from freezer.
