Within reach at the beach. Always have a pocket snack and plenty of drinking water on hand.

These nutrition-packed bars combine sweet heat with plenty of fiber and protein. Take them on the trail, wrap them to eat on the commute or brown bag ‘em for lunch al fresco or al desko. 
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 cup dry roasted peanuts, coarsely chopped
2 cup whole wheat flour
2 eggs
3 tablespoons each molasses and water
1 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 cup Thai peanut sauce
1/3 cup smooth peanut butter  

Grease an 8 X 8-inch pan and line the bottom with waxed paper. Set the oven to 350 degrees F. Combine sugar, peanuts and flour in a clean bag to mix well. In a bowl whisk the eggs, molasses, water, baking soda and peanut sauce. Stir in peanut butter, then stir in  dry ingredients. Mix well. 

Put dough into the pan. Bake until toasty brown and  firm to the touch. Cool 5 minutes, then turn out of the pan and cut up while it’s still warm. When it’s cool, wrap individual pieces. Makes four trail meals when served with a beverage, or cut in smaller pieces to carry as a snack.
