Guess who was back at Studio 512? Me! After a great segment with the lovely (and award winning) host Amanda Tatom about hiking some of the best nature trails around Austin, we went back to the studio to make these Trail Mix Energy Bars. Simple to make and very adaptable for your palate –– one can change up the dried fruit choice or nut choice in these and still get delicious results. These bars are a fairly quick and easy thing to throw together before your next big outdoor adventure.

Watch me make them on the show here and grab the recipe below.

Ingredients
  • 2 cups rolled oats
  • 1 1/2 cups peanut butter room temperature
  • 3/4 cup brown rice syrup
  • 1 cup mixed nuts I used almonds and pecans
  • 1 cup dried fruit I used golden and red raisins

Instructions
  1. Line an 9X9 pan with parchment paper and set aside. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Add all ingredients to a large bowl and mix together until well incorporated. Once well combined pour oat mixture out into the lined pan. Spread mixture out evenly and press down firmly around the entire square. Place into the oven and cook for 20-30 minutes or until lightly golden on the outside and firm in the center. Remove from the oven, press down firmly on the bar mixture again and let it cool completely.
  3. Once cooled cut into 8-10 bars and wrap individually or serve.
  4. Note: for a crispier bar cook slightly longer - for a softer bar cook slightly less.
