Many thanks to Cori (infinite) for passing along this recipe. I made a full batch and they lasted 7 days eating a very happy amount almost every day. Delicious, moderate-calorie, easy to make. If anyone has ideas of how to make more calorie-dense let me know! I made a few substitutions of nuts but the original is also fantastic.

More calories? Just do what Jon Toner does: add butter to everything.

Butter = gratuitous amounts of energy. And it makes everything taste better. Moderate-calories and 'energy bar' are a bit of an oxymoron.

Yay! Glad you got some good use out of them. :drink:

I wonder if you could throw in extra nut powder, cocoa powder (mmm), or wheat germ with additional sticky-syrupy-something (or butter? hmm...idk) to preserve bar cohesion. The crispies are certainly nice for consistency, but not dense-ness. Could be a fun kitchen project. :)

EDIT: Variation thought of the morning: use sunflower seed butter instead of or in addition to almond butter. The texture seems like it would make for good binding material.
