Miss Ann's Tour de Corn Energy Bars

Ann's "Tour de Corn Energy Bars"

For more than a decade, the fine folks at the Nelson Memorial United Methodist Church have provided these fan-favorite treats for our Tour de Corn riders.   One of the parishoners, "Miss Ann," started this TdC tradition when she tweaked an energy bar recipe she found years ago -- and the result: pure tasty energy!  

1/2 cup sugar
1-1/2 cups light corn syrup
1/2 cup honey
1 cup peanut butter with nuts
1 cup old fashioned oats
4 cups Grape Nuts cereal or Nutty Nuggets cereal
1 cup sliced almonds
1 cup chopped dried apricot
1 cup dried cranberries

  • Line a 9"X13" baking pan with foil overlapping ends of pan. Coat foil with cooking spray.
  • Combine in large saucepan syrup, honey, sugar and peanut butter over medium heat.
  • Bring to boil and cook 1 minute, stirring constantly.
  • In large mixing bowl, put other ingredients, then pour syrup mixture over all. THIS WILL BE A VERY STIFF MIXTURE!  Mix well and pour into prepared pan.
  • Using a glass or as mixture cools slightly, use palms of hands to press mixture down.
  • After cooling, cut into bars. (Miss Ann usually cuts 4 across and 6 down).
  • Use snack size baggies and place bars in these.

Thanks for the great ride yesterday! My 7 year old little girl finished her first ever 30 mile ride! She loved it! I will post my article here when I finish writing it! Good reviews all around, even for the chicken we almost ran over!
