Emporia Powerbar Recipe?

Recommended Posts

Does anyone remember how to make those incredible powerbar / healthfood bar things that we used to get in our Sunday sack suppers at Emporia? They were bricks. I loved them. It'd be great to be able to make up a batch for the next family camping extravaganza.

HHHHhhhhhhmmmmmmmm????

Nika,

I don't have the actual sesame seed or braun food bar recipes anymore, but one of the first two or three Moosewood Cookbooks has a recipe that is really close.

You are right! YUMMMMMY!!

Here's the actual recipe for the sesame peanutbutter bars:

1/2 cup honey

1/2 cup peanut butter (the natural does a better job)

1 cup non-instant powdered milk

1/2 cup shredded coconut

1 cup sesame seeds

Warm honey and peanutbutter together, add powdered milk, coconut and then sesame seeds. Spread into a 9x9 pan, refrigerate, and cut into squares. Makes a dozen

I was called the Emporia Food service queen by many (It was my In-resident career)

1/2 Cup p-nut butter

1/2 cup honey

1 Cup milk powder

1 cup sesame seeds

mix together and press into pan

cut into squares

This next recipe I haven't reduced (sorry)

braun food bars

45 cups raisins

18 cups oats

18 cups peanuts

18 cups walnuts

Grind this in food grinder until very smooth and press into a pan. Cut into squares

This takes quite some time to make.

Thank you , thank you!

Last night, I made my own version:

2 cups raisins, ground in food processor

1 cup peanut butter

1/2 cup milk powder

1/4 cup honey

3/4 cup coconut

I mixed it all together, pressed it into a pan, and the kids are still begging for more of it!

Now I have something new for quick energy for the t-ball crowd; thank you very, very much!

I thought it was fig pap or was it "pep"?

anyway, on these bar thingies... are you supposed to bake 'em? or freeze 'em? or just let them sit there until they dry out and get hard?

Uncle H -- Really??? That is too bad. icon_frown.gif:(--> icon_frown.gif:(--> icon_frown.gif:(-->

I never did care where the recipe came from. If the "end product" was tasty, who gives a rip who "promotes it" ?? icon_confused.gif:confused:-->

Am guessing you are associating the food with bad experiences.

Me? -- I enjoy the food, and forget the experiences that used to be around it. icon_cool.gif
