These bar cookies are great energy food; I especially love to take them snowboarding. The recipe came from my mom's friend years ago and I modified it to suit my taste.

Step 1: Gather the Ingredients

First off, make sure you actually have the ingredients. They are as follows:
1 stick (1/2 cup) butter
1 cup brown sugar
2/3 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup light corn syrup
2 tsp. vanilla
1/2 cup coconut
1/2 cup raisins
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
3 cups dry oatmeal (quick or regular)

Could honey substitute for syrup?

I take a no-bake (raw) approach when making my "Quick Energy Morsels," so I thought I'd share.. Grind walnuts, flaxseeds, and raisins in a food processor, roll into balls, coat with unsweetened shredded coconut, and refrigerate overnight before eating. But, don’t hesitate to try different dried fruit (ie: apricots, blueberries, cranberries, dates) and nut (ie: almonds, cashews, pecans, pistachios) combinations, or even seeds (ie: hemp, pumpkin, sunflower) and spice (ie: cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla) combinations. The attached picture is one of the pieces on a plate of drying lemon peel -great for a lemony zest in pastas!

mmhmm... but a lot denser because there is no eggs
Okay, I was wondering about that.

I'm going to have to try this. My sister just sent me some stuff with these ingredients that she calls Amish Crack.
