I am crazy about peanut butter. Peanut butter in my opion is the nectar of the gods and makes the world go round. These bars are simply amazing and pretty much the equivalent of a snickers bar on the trail.. just without the sugar crash and guilt. 

Tools needed: 
Food processor
Stove
Sauce pan

Ingredients:
2 dl oats
1 dl peanuts
1.5 dl rice crispies
1 dl honey
1 dl peanut butter

Preparation:

  1. Melt the honey and peanut butter together at a low temperature

    1. yeah.. It’s purely a personal choice. I throw in the fridge just to chill the heated honey and peanut butter. I find the bars get hard after that and suit me fine. I don’t like having to many processes in making my bars.

      1. But when you take it with you, doesn’t it melt back due to warm/hot weather ? Baking it probably prevents that.

      2. could be the case.. Personally never had a problem with it. I suppose it’s a lot like a snickers or clif bar.. keep them in a good place and you don’t have to worry too much.
