Thai Peanut Gorp
    These nutrition-packed bars have a sweet, spicy Thai tang like no other. Wash them down with a hot or cold beverage to make a meal on the trail or a midnight snack around the campfire. They also make a nice addition to a bento box lunch.
3/4 cup brown sugar
2/3 cup chopped,  roasted peanuts
1 2/3 cup whole wheat flour
2 eggs
2 tablespoons each molasses and water
1 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 cup thai peanut sauce
1/3 cup smooth peanut butter 

1. Set the oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a baking pan or sheet. Combine sugar, peanuts and flour in a plastic bag to mix well. 

2. Separate one egg, saving the white.  In a bowl whisk the whole egg, one egg yolk, molasses and water with baking soda and peanut sauce. Stir in peanut butter, then dump in dry ingredients. Mix well.

3. Shape dough into a log and flatten it. Place on lightly greased baking pan. Whisk egg white and 1 teaspoon water until frothy and brush on top of the roll. Bake at 350° until toasty brown and firm to the touch. While the log is still warm, slice it. When slices are completely cool wrap them  for the trail. Makes four trail meals when served with a beverage, or cut in smaller pieces to carry as a snack.
