Energy Bars

James and I are working on eating healthy.  I am hoping one of these bars paired with a hard egg or egg white will make a good snack.  This recipe comes from Trainermomma.com who got it from snackgirl.com.  I followed the recipe except I didn’t have any plain non-fat yogurt so I used vanilla low-fat (so there will be some extra calories).  I also substituted whole wheat flour for all-purpose flour.

While I was making these I thought of a few more things that I would like to add- some vanilla or unflavored protein powder, vanilla extract (for next time when I do have plain yogurt on hand), raw sunflower seed or another seed/nut.  I would also like to try cutting out the brown sugar and using something else.  Stay tuned for updates.


1 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
2 cups rolled oats
2/3 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup raisins
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1 1/2 cups plain yogurt, fat-free
1/4 cup canola oil

Preheat oven to 375 F. Spray 24 muffin cups with non-stick spray. Mix dry ingredients together with hands and then add wet ingredients. Mix thoroughly until combined.

Place approximately 1 1/2 tablespoons of the batter in each muffin cup. Bake for 12-15 minutes.
