Keeping your busy family nourished with delicious food is a challenge. Keeping kids on a healthy diet during the hectic back-to-school season can be equally difficult. Jean Enersen has an easy, make at home, back-to-school energy booster the whole family will love - the Monster Energy Bar.

Monster Energy Bar

Ingredients
2 C Oats
1 C Nuts, use your favorite or a combination
1 C Dried Fruit
 
1/4 C  Maple Syrup
1/4 C  Honey
1/4 C  Barley Malt Syrup
1 C     Peanut Butter or other nut butter
2 T     Vegetable oil
1/2 t  Sea salt
 
Toast the oats and nuts in a baking pan for 10 minutes in a 350 degree oven.

Combine all wet ingredients in a sauce pan on medium to low heat on the stove and stir until well blended about 10 minutes.

Then combine the wet ingredients and the oven toasted ingredients along with the dried fruit in a large mixing bowl and mix well.

Transfer your ingredients into shallow 9 X 11 pan and compress everything evenly into the bottom of the pan.

Put the pan into your refrigerator for about 2 hours.

Cut into squares and enjoy.
