Energy Bars at Home

I found this in an issue of Bike Magazine while cleaning up man cave/spare bedroom.

Dry Ingredients
1 Cup Whole Wheat Flour
2 Cups Rolled Oats
1/2 Cup Oat Bran
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup shredded coconut (unsweetend)
1 Cup Lightly Salted Chopped Nuts
1/2 Cup Dried Fruit

Wet Ingredients:
2/3 Cup Peanut Butter
1/2 Cup Milk
2 eggs
1/2 Cup Honey
1/2 Cup Brown Sugar

Line a 9"x13" Baking pan with plastic wrap and coat with cooking spray.
Mix together the dry ingredients, then usa a mixer to blend well with wet ingredients.
Press the uber-sticky mixture into the pan.
Cool for 30 minutes in the fridge.
After cooling, remove the concoction from the pan and cut into bars.
Place bars on a greased baking sheet and bake at 300 degrees for 20 minutes, or until firm to the touch.
Let cool, then chow down before during and after your ride.
