If you like cookies like I do, you'll love another cookie recipe and this one is a great energy bar. This one has bran flakes, coconut, walnuts and apricots. The ingredients will provide some good nutrition as well as as having a yummy flavor.

This cookie recipe contains lots of healthy ingredients, but also included are honey and light brown sugar. Very little flour is used because the bran flakes replaces most of it, which is healthier for you. It is named "High Energy Bars" and if you want energy, these will give you that.

High Energy Bar Recipe


1/2 c honey

1/3 c light brown sugar

1/4 c butter

5 c bran flakes with raisins (lightly crushed)

1 - 3 1/2 oz can flaked coconut

1 - 4 oz can or package chopped walnuts

1 c dried apricots chopped and mixed with 1/4 c flour

2 large eggs, beaten:


1. Preheat over to 400 degrees. Grease a 9" x 13" pan.

2. Stir the honey, sugar and butter in a saucepan over medium heat until the sugar is dissolved.

3. In a large bowl, toss bran falkes, coconut, walnuts and apricots that have been coated with flour.

4. Pour in the warm honey mixture. Then stir in the eggs and mix to coat the dry ingredients evenly.

5. Press firmly into the prepared pan.

6. Bake 15 - 20 minutes or until the mixture is golden brown.

7. Cool 10 minutes and cut into bars.

Take these along camping, biking, hiking and whenever you'd like a healthy snack. Pack one in your child's lunchbox.
