We love it when customers share recipes with us! We’re all big fans of food here at Rancho Vignola and we’re always up to trying out something new.

We’ve gotten lots of positive feedback from staff and customers who’ve enjoyed this recipe, so we wanted to make sure you got a chance to try it as well!

A big thank you to Marion for sharing this recipe with us.

Eat More Bars

Ingredients:
1 cup carob chips, barley malt sweetened (Rancho Dark Chocolate Chips or Rancho Dark Chocolate Domes also work well in this recipe)
1 cup Rogers Golden Syrup or liquid honey
½ cup peanut butter or almond butter
1 cup wheat germ
½ cup sunflower seeds
1 cup roasted peanuts, chopped

The seeds can be replaced with pumpkin seeds and/or walnuts if desired.

Directions:

Melt together carob chips, chocolate chips, syrup, honey and peanut butter in a saucepan on low heat. Remove from heat.
Stir in remaining ingredients and press into a 9″ x 9″-inch pan.
Chill and then cut into squares. Serve chilled, and if you have more than you can eat right away, they freeze well.

  1. Where do you get your malt sweetened carob chips for this recipe? Thank you and happy holidays!

    • To be honest, I’ve only made this recipe with our dark chocolate chips as I’m not a big fan of most carob products out there. If you’d like to use carob specifically I would check out a local to you health food store, most will have carob chips available.

    • While I haven’t tried making this recipe with substitutions, ground flax seed often works well to replace wheat germ. Rice or oat bran might also work as a replacement. Let us know if you give the recipe a try with substitutions, and what worked for you!

  2. I am not able to use wheat germ; do you know of some ingredient that can be used instead?

  4. What would you recommend as a replacement for the wheat germ (my son is allergic to wheat germ, wheat bran etc etc). They look delicious
