Looking for a satisfying breakfast bar or an afternoon snack that can carry you through your workout? These tasty treats offer the richness of a traditional oatmeal cookie but are much more satisfying. Make them ahead and freeze some for later. They're also great to take along on a long bike ride.

3/4 cup all-purpose flour

1/4 cup Kretschmer Original Toasted Wheat Germ

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

1/4 teaspoon baking soda

2 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened

3/4 cup brown sugar

1/4 cup natural peanut butter

1 large egg, beaten

2 cups old-fashioned or quick-cooking oats

1/2 cup dried cherries, chopped

1/4 cup chopped walnuts

Preheat oven to 350° F.

Line cookie sheet with parchment paper or aluminum foil.

In small bowl, mix together flour, wheat germ, baking powder and baking soda. Set aside.

In medium bowl using a hand or stand mixer, cream together butter and brown sugar until light and fluffy. Add peanut butter and egg and mix well. Add flour mixture and mix until combined. Stir in oats, cherries and walnuts.

Drop equal amounts batter (about 1/4 cup) on prepared cookie sheet. Shape into 3 x 2-inch bars, leaving about an inch of space between each bar. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes or until lightly browned on bottom. Allow to cool slightly before serving.
