ISO Homemade Energy Bars

I wasn't sure where to ask this but does anyone have any recipes for homemade energy type bars. A friend of mine wants to make them for his daughter. She's on a swim team and works out a lot. He usually buys them but wants to try to save money and perhaps give her something healthier.

What does he want to have in them? Does he want the protein powder stuff in there? (In which case I'm no help at all) or does he want a nut butter/fruit type thing? I have some recipes that include peanut butter and dried fruit and nuts, oats and bran. I can dig those out if that is what he is looking for.

I sometimes make an oatmeal cookie with added wheat germ and milled flax seed, coconut, other nuts. I use pretty much the same stuff in my home made granola, with the addition of dried fruit. One could put them in the cookies, too. You may want to find out what types of nuts, dried fruit, and seeds she likes, then experiment with an oatmeal cookie base. One can use peanut butter (or other nut butters) for part of the butter, depending on fruit, maybe not add as much sugar.

Thanks

FWIW, Bob's Red Mill carries both soy- and hemp-based protein powder. I've used the soy powder before (in smoothies); it doesn't seem to affect the taste. Good luck nailing down the recipe! :)
